What a dear man and great neighbor he was! When I moved to the neighborhood several years ago he was so welcoming. I'm glad we had a good visit a year or so ago. I won't forget his email of sly pig and the twinkle in his eye explaining to me the meaning. Will miss him and sympathy & prayers to his family

Charley has been a wonderful neighbor for so many years, and each of my young adult children has fond memories of speaking to him as they cut through his yard on the way to and from the park or pool. He will be remembered by me as our most enthusiastic audience for the annual Christmas Caroling. He was a charming man and will be missed. Prayers to the family
