  • Charley was a great guy, loved talking with him on a number of topics, sorry for the loss of a wonderful gentleman.

  • Was shocked and saddened to hear that Charlie passed. I unfortunately had not spoken to him for about six months prior to his passing. I offer my condolences to his family. Charlie was one of a kind, a good soul.
