We lost a man that lived with joy, integrity and love. He is my girls grandfather and one of my Father-in-laws. Charlie was always kind, caring and honest. He would offer advice when asked, knew just when to tell a joke to make ya laugh and a shoulder to cry on if needed. He was the patriarch of a family that will always be dear to my heart. I'm at peace knowing that you are now with "mom" as I know she's been waiting patiently for you. Peace Out Charlie....drink a cold one, you earned it!!
