Still hard to believe he's gone. Chaz (as I always called him) was my friend since I met him in 1968, when I was just a young lad at Hedgerow. We acted together, he directed me, I directed him, and we shared many a meal and a cocktail over the years.He was kind, unassuming, very knowledgable about the arts, and had a dry sense of humor. We shared many good times and adventures over the years, and my brothers and I practically grew up at his Long Beach Island home during our school summer breaks. He was generous with his home and opened it up often to fellow Hedgerovians and their friends for parties and weekend getaways. I'm glad I got to spend some time with him shortly before he left us.

A true gentle man & raconteur, who loved the theatre. Always the same "Chickie" acting, directing or having a Manhattan. Never putting on airs, he created a relaxed, fun enviroment, what is called "an actor's director" He took a chance on me in two shows HAYWIRE and LIGHT UP THE SKY ---- Ricardo Verde' (Media PA)

I was just asking about Charlie. Makes me very sad that he is gone. I was privileged to see him play Jasper Deeter's role of Ira Morton in Inheritors at Hedgerow. Charlie - I would have liked to see you again. You knew so very much...

I knew Charlie from his time at the Hedgerow Theatre, Moylan, PA in the 1980s. He directed me in NIGHT MUST FALL in the role he played as a young man, and he directed me again in THE CHERRY ORCHARD. He was a joy to know and be with. My wife and I stayed at Charlie's place on Long Beach Island around that same time frame. He was a very generous host. He shall be missed.
