Charlie a.k.a. Hollywood as my wife always called him will be deeply missed. My condolences to the family. I will miss our monthly phone calls and The good memories from those phone calls. My fondest one is of you and I sitting at the top of the giant wheel at FIAP after closing was a bottle of scotch. Everyone went home and we had a hell of a time getting down from there that night we had to call someone back to the park to get us down. Rest in peace Charlie.
