When my sisters and I were young we’d go to Uncle Charlie’s and Aunt Janis’ on the weekends we were with my Dad (his brother Harold). Uncle Charlie always had a twinkle in his eyes and that signature smile of his! He was full of life and mischief and I always enjoyed our visits. I am happy he knew Jesus as his personal Savior as he is now reunited with my Dad and his other brother Richard along with his Son. Love you Aunt Janis and Cousins.

I remember Charlie through his brothers Richard and Harold. I met he and his wife several times. I do know that he was a great Bradley Basketball fan. My sincere sympathy to his family. I am sure you have many memories to last for a long time as I know he loved his family. May those memories help sustain you through this difficult time. My wife and I share our thoughts and prayers with you and trust you find comfort.
