The morning Charlie died I was having coffee with my wife in SW Florida, enjoying a new sense of health after many chest surgeries. My daughter Rebecca in Chicago sent me a text message at around 9 a.m. that changed that feeling in an instant; "Charlie Trotter died!

To the Charlie Trotter Family,
We visited the restaurant starting with our first anniversary and going every 5 years. Our first visit Charlie took us through the kitchen and to the wine cellar. We left at 2:00 am. Charlie loved his craft and he certainly loved sharing the love of breaking bread with others. Heaven has a great chef and a truly good human being

Before Charlie opened his restaurant and up to closing,I was the fortunate recipient of his ceaseless generosity and support. He set a standard for the exceptional, that I continue to draw on to this day. I'm saddened that his family will miss all he had yet to accomplish, as I know he would have continued to impact the world around him. My sincere sympathy for his entire family.
May all the many, many wonderful times with Charlie continue to support them all through this time of profound loss.
Thank you Charlie

Dear Trotter family,

Our deepest sympathy goes to you at this time of great loss.

We remember Charlie from grade school days vigorously playing at Gilson Park with our son, Dwight. So quickly time flies !

"Those we love don't go away;
They walk beside us every day;
Unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still missed and always dear."

He will be greatly missed!

God bless!
