I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I remember the time that your dad took us on a ship to meet the crew. We had a wonderful time that day!
Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

We are sad to hear about this. We both sang alongside Charles for a number of years, as members of the Baltimore Symphony Chorus, which is where we got to know him. In addition to being a good singer, he was a fine man.
We know you will miss him but hope that some of your memories include him singing. Those memories would be joyful indeed.

Charles was my grandmother, Eleanor Supik McGillicuddy's brother so Charles was my mother, Eleanor McGillicuddy Williams's cousin. Charles was so gracious to investigate the family tree and share his work with my sister, Eleanor Williams Rascoe's, and my families. The hard work he did was such a gift for our family. The most special piece of family history he found was that my uncle, Joe McGillicuddy, was on a ship that was sunk by a German submarine and all on board were lost. Before that discovery, our family only knew that Uncle Joe as missing in action from World War II for over 50 years. Rest In Peace.

Dear Margaret, and family
I will never forget walking into a pub with Charles on one side and John Grzybowski on the other - me in my full concert blacks, them in tuxedos after singing a Herb Dimmock Singers gig. Oh the comical looks we drew! But I do enjoyed those years of singing and carpooling, exchanging stories in the car. Charles told stories of working on the docks, and of singing (I particularly remember tales of the Tenebrae service at St. Wenceslaus). It was wonderful to glean advice before Kyle and my trip to Prague (and I remain sorry that it didn't overlap with one of your trips!). There was also the time where we (the carpool) went to the wrong place? Half the bass and tenor section discovering that they were meant to be in Harrisburg (not Hershey) or some such thing, and high-tailing it across the countryside to tear into the parking lot at the last minute - trying to ceremoniously arrive on stage with Charles' stool.
Holding Charles' memory in my thoughts and wishing I could be present to deliver a heartfelt hug to you,

I have so many fond memories of singing with Charles in the Herb Dimmock Singers, and even more of relaxing over a beer after rehearsals. He was a true gentleman with a great sense of humor, and I'm very sorry to hear of his passing. Prayers and condolences to his family.

Uncle Charlie has always been my Uncle Charlie. My fondest memory was when I was back in high school (John Carroll), he gave me a jeep to drive back and forth and for my personal use. In return, I drove Edward, Howard, Carla, Dawn and Lori back and forth to school. During those drives, we had so much fun singing.... "I hate everybody riding in this jeep, except myself". Of course, I was the only one who won the contest. None of that would have happened if Uncle Charlie didn't offer me the use of his jeep. He is loved and will be missed terribly.

Carla and Howard my sincere condolences go out to you and the rest of Uncle Charlie’s family. I am keeping you all in my prayers. I know how horrible this is for all of you
