73 OM

I am so saddened to learn that you have left us, now almost 4 years ago.

You knew a great deal about many things - ham radio, Hungarian wines and paprika, music and more - and you shared your knowledge with kindness and friendship.

You were always a decent and kind man and were a gem to all who had the good fortune to knew you and call you "friend".

Sincere belated condolences to the Nagy Family.

I have been wondering where you were Charlie...I dialed your # many times and asked Donnie if he heard from you and we were both worried...I loved being on stage with you and laughing at things with our Bronx sarcastic sense of humor. R.I.P. you are a loyal friend...Judy Purce???

I have known Charles since my first job at Peoples Express Airlines in 1984..Since then we have worked together, transfered over to Continental Airlines, then we again slid over to United.. We have spoke numerous times about his radio and band career. Charles made no story boring and kept me in tune many times riding the bus to our cars..Sorry we have lost contact when he left, but his name came up several times on the are missed...

I had known Charlie since we were young men and played music together as a living. That was for years and then we went separate ways. But all of you likely know, that a more honest man of integrity would be hard to find. Everything he attempted, he did with gusto...from music to radio, photography and archiving the endeavors of his and his friends activities. I am saddened that he is gone and it leaves a whole in my soul. Anyone who knows of Charlie's work and wants to share would find a welcome ear in me. He was a TRUE friend, artist, craftsman and blessing.

I was a member of the Amateur Radio group that Charlie belonged to (ARES and then ARECS). We also mutually supported each other....he teaching me about video recording/editing and I teaching him about computers. He was a great guy and recently, when I mentioned my stint with the AF security Service in Diyarbakir, Turkey, found that he has entertained there with his band, working for the USO. I will miss him.

I am so sorry to learn, on internet enquiry, that my transatlantic friend Charlie has passed from us. We met first through Amateur Radio, then conducted a correspondence by e-mail for a number of years, sharing good natured opinion on pretty well everything and especially humour and photography. I send my sincere condolences to his sister in the UK and to any other surviving relatives. My life is the poorer without his friendship.
