Dottie and family, I'm so sorry to hear of Charlie's passing. He was a great guy and wonderful neighbor, lots of fun memories of him spoiling and teasing Chris! Thoughts are with you at this time, may he RIP. Deb Atkins

I have fond childhood memories of "Chuckie" . That was his name to us who grew up with him on Market Street. He was a good
guy. Many memories , among them playing baseball in the street, although most of the time, the boys wouldn't let us girls play.

My sincere condolences to his family.

Rest in peace Charlie.
