Charles never had a bad word to say about anyone, Charlie was loved by all. I worked with Charlie for more than 30 years, we enjoyed fishing on pleasant Bay, off of Cuttyhunk, golfing together and attending many New England District sales meetings together.
I have many wonderful memories of this wonderful man and will miss him.The NORTON tattoo on Charles chest could not be worn off!!
