I have known Charlie for a number of years doing odd jobs and just helping out when needed and I consider myself very lucky to have known such a kind hearted man who always had a kind word and a friendly smile. I will miss that friendly smile greatly.

I remember Chuck as that good looking life guard at the park but i was too young and you were the one who caught his eye. I was sorry to read of his passing. Bless you and your family, let the memories bring you solace. Jane (MacDonald)Rodgers
