Charlie was my boss for several years. He is the best boss I ever worked for at Square D. He was not only a good boss but a good friend as well. He cared for me personally and for my family as well. When I was sick in 1990, he would come visit me at my home. We were friends and I often saw him at the green way in Smyrna walking when I was too. He was a great man and I cared for him deeply. He will be missed very much by everyone who was ever around him. He had a great sense of humor and enjoyed cutting up with everyone. Praying for his family for their loss of a great man.

I never new Charlie as a boss but have heard a lot of stories. I had the privilege of being Charlie golf partner for the last 3 or 4 years. He was fun to be around! He was always telling me stories of his family and you could tell by the way he talked he loved his family. He talked to me about the church he went to " Highland Heights Church of Christ." His preacher Wayne Cornwell and what a great job he did. Charlie was a great friend and golf partner. Alot of times when the rest of the guys were warming up, me and him would sit back and talk about everyday life. One thing sure about Charlie while he was playing golf he didn't hit ball far but most of the time it went straight in the middle of the fairway. I remember our last game we played. We were fixing to tee up on hole # 17. He said thank you for letting me play with you most people wouldn't play with an old man. I looked at him and said anytime, I loved playing golf with Charlie. I am going to miss that! I want to say to the family, thank you for allowing him to come out and play golf with us. My prayers are for all of you right now! Charlie will surely be missed by all that new him.
