I have known Mr. Charlie Pilat for almost all of my life. He was good friends
with my entire family and especially my grandfather Frank Biehunko, Jr. and my dad Taylor Biehunko. I had many great times with his son Joe and wife Linda and always enjoyed sitting down with Mr. Pilat and visiting. He was a great businessman . May god bless the entire Pilat family.
