Reading these messages has meant so much. It's wonderful to see names from the past crop up. Thank you all for your memories of Charley.
Charley & I worked for the Equitable Life company from the late 1960s thru 1979. I am so sorry regarding his passing. My sincere condolences to his family.He will be missed.

I was hired by Charley as a very green developer and he is fully responsible for my having the job I have today by taking a chance on me! I loved working for him and with my cohorts. I sometimes wish I had never left. I will miss you Charley! You are in my heart forever!
I worked with Charley for more than 10 years and MoneyMaker/ACS. He was a great soul and always there to help. I still picture his office full of cases and cases of Girl Scout cookies and a white board always in use while we figured things out. Can't forget the softball games, worried about getting busted for drinking beer in the parking lot (and figuring out if we could get enough money out of the ATM to cover bail...). The world will miss you Charley...
Wow, what a huge loss for this earth. I went by to see Charley when he got out of the hospital and he proudly showed me Jen's wedding announcement in the New York Times. I said "you know, no matter what happens to me, at least I made it to her wedding." He was a proud dad and then sent me a picture of he and Jen at the wedding. He valued that and I hope you will to Jen.
Charley KNEW stuff! LOL. I had the privilege of working with Charley at MoneyMaker. It was a uniquely wonderful group of folks. I'll never forget me taking a problem to Charley that needed fixing fast. He said he'd take care of it if I brought him a bag of Hershey's Kisses. Thanks to Charley, I learned the valuable lesson of bribing programmers, which has proven to be a successful practice in my long career in the payments processing industry! Charley, you will be missing. Until we meet again, my friend... Love, Grayson
Charley worked for us as a consultant at AAFES. He did great work and was very well liked. I can still remember his laugh. Taken too young, you will be missed. My prayers go out to the family.
Charley was special. I was glad when he got in touch after a couple of decades, glad to hear that he'd done all right and glad I could report that his Martin D-35 sounded better than ever. He's gone too soon. My sympathies to the family and friends he left behind.
Reading these messages has meant so much to Jen and me. It is wonderful to see how many lives he touched. Thank you so much.
Charley- Although I haven't known you as long as others here, you touched my life indelibly. Thank you. I will miss you. Blessings to Julie and Jen. Kathy
We have definitely lost a unique soul from this world. Charley amazed all with his skills and memory. I think he brought out the best in folks and was always willing to share the glory. I worked with Charley at ACS and later formed a business venture with ByAnn, Ricky and I. Ah the memories - many have mentioned his strong feelings regarding music, food, etc. I smile when I think of the time that I thought it would be a good idea to mix the Hershey's Kisses with Peppermints in the candy dish - I found out that I had ruined the Kisses. He was a purist in many ways. Craig and I thought of you, Charley recently on a fly fishing trip. Craig was using the gear that you gave him when you found out there was an interest there. Just another example of the love he spread.
Julie and Jen our hearts go out to you!
Lori and I send our prayers! I miss Charley's wealth of knowledge- I enjoyed working with him at MoneyMaker - ACS
Charley will be missed is an understatement. He was one in a million and I will never meet another like him. I loved Steve's input, but I can add one. I always knew that Charley could be enticed by Hershey's Kisses but God forbid you should ever mix the peppermints with the Hershey's Kisses. He was a gifted individual who was a pleasure to work with as well as a great business partner. We will meet again. Best to Jen and Julie!!
Charley (not Charlie)was definitely one of a kind and will be missed. I learned so much from him when we worked together at ACS. I quote him often when someone tells me something can't be done. Charley said "Freida, we can do anything if we have enough time and money". In my book Charley could make the impossible possible. What a dear man!
Dear Jen, and Julie:
I can't tell you how sorry we were to hear about Charley. We know how much you will miss him. Please know that we are thinking about you at this difficult time.
The Krysko Family
We'll meet again Charley. Save a seat for me.
May Light Perpetual Shine Upon Him.
My thoughts and prayers to Charley's family at this time of sorrow. Workig with Charley was a once in a life time experience.
Someone so special can never be forgotten.
Charley was always there to help me at work and I considered him a great friend. My prayers go out to his family.
May Charley's memory be blessed.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Thanks Charley.......for all you taught us.....will always remember video-taping your white board! Rest in Peace.
God bless your family at this time. I remember the old days... a class act and you will be missed
I will miss Charley very much. When I first met him, I was struck by how proud he was of his family. Jen, if nobody has mentioned it, I want you to know that, no matter if you were ten or thirty, your dad's eyes lit up whenever he spoke of you.
I'm sorry now for never having enough Mexican Cokes in the house and for wandering back inside (unnoticed) when the patio talk turned to tube amps.
Charley was a very good friend to both Bruce and me, and Daisy really liked him, which speaks volumes.
Dear Julie and Jen,
My heart felt prayers and thoughts go out to each of you and the rest of Charley's friends and family. Reading other comments sure made me smile. It appears others also knew Charley well and described him to a 'T'!
I was blessed because I was one of the loved ones for more than 30 years!
I second the, "Go well chum!'
Love to all.....
I know you're in heaven as a special angel! Rest in peace my friend.
I was shocked and so very very sad to hear of my friends passing. Charley was one of my first friends when I moved to Dallas some 27 years ago..I think he remembered the date !
I believe it's true too that when Charley loved someone he loved them forever.
I still can't believe he's gone I will miss his sense of humor and knowing that he's reading my comments and posts on Facebook about my life in France.
He truly was one of a kind and one hell of a man.
I miss you Charley.
I was shocked and saddened to hear of Charlie's passing. He was always a joy to be around. I know he'll be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Charley Walter was singular individual. He held strong opinions about beer, hot dogs, mustard, golf courses, guitars, tube amplifiers, lawn mowers, and baseball players. He had an exceptional memory, and would recall shared moments in great detail that others had long forgotten. He lived life at his own pace and from his own unique point-of-view, which could be exasperating if you were trying to get him to do something, but was more often an admirable quality you wish you could emulate. He was a sentimental man, a fan of sappy folk music lyrics and Hallmark card-type memories of friends and family. He was intensely loyal, and once you earned his trust and affection, he was devoted to you forever. I don't know if Charley loved a great many people - I suspect not. But the ones he did love knew they were loved. There was no doubt about it. We'll miss that the most.
I will always cherish our friendship and the fun times the four of us shared in NYC.
You will be missed Charley.
