    Charlie was a wonderful husband and father, he has left your family with many special memories. Kent and I were always amazed at the wonderful suppers he could strum up while we were out camping. Then later, sitting around the campfire he was sure to have a few good stories to share with everyone. Charlie will be deeply missed by everyone that knew him, but never forgotten!

    Things will never be the same without Uncle Charley. He was so full of life, loved to tease and be teased, full of great one liners. I’ll always remember his infectious laugh and his love for everyone, we were lucky to have him and will always remember countless good times shared. Thinking of you all, xx
