My condolences to the Khoury family.
I jump seated many times in and out of Memphis with Capt Khoury when I was a new hire at Northwest Airlines and commuted to and from Detroit and Minneapolis and later with Delta from New York JFK back to Memphis. Always delightful to speak with and share updates about your kids and happenings in sleepy little Collierville.
Rest In Peace my friend.

I recently saw Charlie down in the parking lot of a hotel at an ungodly hour due to a hotel fire alarm going off, for a long time. We were all exhausted from flying all day and we all had very early wake up calls the next day. He was not my Captain on this specific trip, but he called crew scheduling to take care of his crew & to try to help me out, too. Such a kind man. And funny! I didn’t know that would be the last encounter we would share, may he Rest In Peace. I’m so sorry for your loss. We will sure miss him at Endeavor.

I always enjoyed our trips together. I’ll always miss the sound from 20 feet away in a random airport terminal, “Hey Buddy, let me tell you something…” you always had a story to share and I could always count on a laugh. We just had a good ole time flying. You treated me like an equal from the very first day we met, not just another first officer. You always had time to talk and I’ll miss your confident and reassuring phrase, “you know what buddy, It’s gonna be ok!” - and you were always right!
Walks through the DTW terminal will never be the same.
I wish you eternal peace my friend. I’ll keep your family in my prayers.

I also had the privilege of knowing Charlie through work. He brightened every day with a hello and enjoyable conversation. It is heartwarming and uplifting to read these tributes and trade stories with those whom Charlie had a meaningful impact on their life, myself included.

He will be remembered with love for his warmth and happiness, and may the memories be celebrated by all. My thoughts and prayers and with you and your wonderful family in this difficult time.

For God, who said, Let light shine out of darkness made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. Will always remember Charlie not how he died but how he lived.

I knew Charlie from Endeavor Air. He was always so friendly and bigger than life. The last time I ever saw him, we were at JFK airport and passed in the concourse. Charlie saw me and said, "Heyyy! How are you doin'?" I didn't see him often, but he was always fun to visit with and shoot the breeze. Every time I saw him he had a smile on his face and a friendly word to say. To Charlie's family: Charlie was a great part of Endeavor Air and he will be missed. I'm so sorry for your loss. I pray that you are able to find strength, comfort, and peace during this difficult time. I hope it brings you you some solace knowing how many people at Endeavor think so highly of Charlie, and how many people's days he made better with his smile and warmth. Godspeed, Capt. Khoury...

I had a second funny memory of Charlie to share, and I tell new FOs this story too...
When Charlie was still in the training department on the 200,he got assigned to my trip. We'd been covering GoJet issues all week out in LaGuardia. On the last day we were getting everything ready to head back to Detroit when crew scheduling called him.
"Mr Khoury, we are Junior Manning you, and you'll be covering a trip into your days off." Ugh.
He says "Nah I'm not doing that."
"Mr Khoury, you are the most junior pilot available, you are required to do it!"
He says "Nah, not going to because I don't believe a word you are saying."
"You don't believe us?"
"No I don't... I can count my seniority number on my fingers... Do you really expect me to believe that you called hundreds of people before finally settling on me?"
"Mr Khoury, you'll receive a Missed Trip for the refusal. You'll be speaking to your Base Chief Pilot."
And in the most bossman way possible, Charlie replies "Good, he's my friend and I've been meaning to catch up"!
Only Charlie could get away with something like that.
