Nancy, Steven, and Scott I am so sorry on the passing of Charlie. I have known Charlie for over 45 years. I remember when I first met Charlie I thought he looked like Elvis Presley. We played on the same team in the city softball league for many years. All the great times going to Giardina's after the games and having many adult beverages. Remembering the many trips to Eastover again having many adult beverages at Tally Ho after an exhausting day of horse back riding. All the plumbing problems Charlie corrected at my home for the price of a cold beer. Charlie you certainly lived life to the fullest and was fortunate to have so many friends. You will be remembered as a good and loyal friend to many.

How can I forget watching our sons play football at Marian along with Jimmy 'the Greek', and enjoying all the comforts of home.
Charlie knew how to bring a good time! My thoughts and prayers are with the family. PS: Charlie, the Greek is waiting to welcome you home.
