I have fond memories of spending time at Uncle Charles and Aunt Marion's house in summer when I was young. I always remembering him gardening outside and his laugh while all of grandkids and cousins were running around playing or heading to see the Pirates play. My thoughts and sympathies are with the immediate family, and sorry I could not attend to pay my respects.

My wife Jane and I send condolences to all of Chuck's Family. Among many memories is when Charles returned home from the Coast Guard and showed film of some of his events. The crossing of the timeline was a novelty to our audience and had us laughing till we cried. I will remember it forever. Cousin Charles was a hard worker and a good father ....We will all miss him.....
with love.....Cousin Eddie and Jane.....
