I meet Charles at the IRS while detailed on swing shifts back in the 90' s in the computer room. He would help me to stay awake because i was not use to late night shift so he was the one that provided my coffee to keep me alert .lol He was a true friend and a big brother . You will be missed my friend.

Charles was a wonderful, thoughtful & supportive neighbor who took the time to reach out to us over the years. We will truly miss his smile and words of encouragement. May the Father hold Charles in the hollow of His hands...

Mr. Charles was truly someone that I looked forward to seeing. He was always so kind and cared about all of the kids he came across. He learned all of their names and their siblings name as well. He watched them grow up and he shared his warmth with each one of them. He even remembered the kids who were grown up and came back to Windermere. Not a day went by where kids didn’t wave and shout to him as they were passing by in their cars. I’m thankful and very lucky to know a man like Mr. Charles. My condolences to his family and I hope he is resting easy in paradise.
