I also had the fortunate experience to work with Charley on the Boeing Anti-Satellite (ASAT) program. He was quite the character, and always found a way to add humor to our daily challenges. I wish you (his surviving family) the very best for this holiday season, and may 2014 bring a ray of sunshine as you go on with your own lives without him. My sincere condolences for your loss. RIP Charley.

As I hadn't talked with Charley for quite some time I was shocked to discover his Obituary on the internet. He and I were good friends and first met at work on the Boeing ASAT program. He was a great friend and we shared many a good time partying and other fun outdoor activities. I found him to have fine character and reliability traits and he will be greatly missed be everyone who knew or worked with him as I did. You have my sincerest condolences and I'm sure he is now happily together with his parents. Best regards from a friend.
