I have known Charles for two years now. He was a wonderful man, husband, father, grandfather, and a friend to so many people. He loved God, family, and his country. I'm blessed to have known him, and proud to call him my friend. I will think of you everyday and miss you always. Always & Forever, Cathy A. Hartley

I've known Charles for 2 years, and I always enjoyed sitting on his porch just chatting. A wonderful man, friend. Will be missed every day. My condolences to Carol and all of his family.
