  1. Hello Julie. You don’t know me but I was a childhood friend of Charles in Parrsboro. His parents and my parents were also very good friends. When he’d come home we’d get together for a laugh or two. He was a very likeable and fun loving guy and I will miss seeing him. I am very sorry to hear of his passing. MaybGod bless you.

  5. Dear Julie and family, Charles was one of the greats. I worked with him for about 20 years. He was kind, funny, and all ways had a smile that could light up a room. He will be missed at our get together for the Balzac Gas Plant.

  11. Julie, Kristy, Kelly and families…

    It’s hard to determine the words necessary at a time like this. No words can truly express my feelings for you all. Memories of Charles are always a pleasant thought. Mostly, I will always remember how he smiled whenever he got together with you all and was always warm and welcoming to new people. I will say that he has left a lasting memory and I am grateful to have met and known him.
