We met Peggy and Charlie in the Davis Mountains. The beginning of a great friendship. Wally and Charlie both loved to cook.....many mouth watering
Meals. We became life long friends. They were with us when my Mom died,
And took care of our dog, Many evenings, sat around the fire watching the stars, and solving the world’s problems. He and Wally bought lots of fish to stock the pond. We will miss Charlie! Our love to Peggy and their family. RIP, Charlie......

Uncle-Bro Charles, was not only my uncle, but also like a brother. He came to live with our family before I was born, so I remember my childhood with him in it. He was good at pranks even back then. One memory I really remember is Jr. and Charlie had 22 rifles and went hunting in the pasture. They came back and the barrel of the gun looked like a banana peel; it had split. We don't know who, but someone had placed it in the mud before shooting it. They also put cherry bombs under a cement water trough and it split in half. But I also remember he would share whatever he had with me and his family. I will miss his phone calls because he always could make me laugh and my husband, Jack and him shared the brotherhood of firefighters. What a Guy! I will miss you Charlie and I loved you very much. Life will not be the same with you not in it!

Charlie was an awesome man. I worked with this great guy for years. Charlie had a sense of humor which I treasured and will never forget along with being a big plus for the Midland Fire Department. When i walked into a room and Charlie was there, I would instantly grin, we had a lot of good times over the years. In the Fire Service we use the term "Brotherhood" which represents the bond we develop with each other. He was a prime example of a "Brother". Rest in Peace Charles.

Charlie is the only man I've ever known that could make "carp fish" cakes taste like the best fresh fish you've ever eaten. I believe I ate my weight in them at the fire station one time.
He will be missed by all.
