Joey and Candy,
So sorry to hear of Tippers passing. My prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. Tippers was a Binghamton icon. I have so many great memories growing up playing basketball at St. Thomas and baseball at Rec Park and Tippers at all the games and practices. He was one of a kind.

I worked with Charlie at IBM Endicott and have fond memories of a wonderful, happy, and respectful gentleman. He was a pleasure to work with and to know him. He loved his family and life. It was evident daily. May he be a special guardian angel to those he loved and who loved him. Peace and God's comfort to the Abdallah family.
Candee, Caroline and Joe
Uncle charlie was nicknames "Cheap charlie" but he was never that but only as he lived to be Jack Benny. He was the most generous person I ever knew and I owe him a lot. He inspired my love of sports and especially the Yankees and NY Giants. I always loved to hear his infectious laughter and his antics.... like where did the Japanese rifle come from and how did Charlie get it; What happened to my quarter on the golf green replaced by a nickel with his fingerprints on the old buffalo; did Aunt Jackie really get a "Get Well Card" if she did not shop at the mall once a week? He was the never ending source of humor for the family and friends. But what he did every day for the family was the greatest - he was a man for the ages and I'll never forget him and always hope to live up to his integrity and character! I love you Charlie even though we rarely agreed on politics... it was the Family and Yankees that kept the glue of our love and care. I also feel blessed that my oldest daughter, Lorene shared your birthday and she always felt a special bond since she kicked you in the shins as a little girl.
Love you Charlie - Give our best to the family who you join in heaven!

Very sorry to hear of Mr. Abdallah's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Candee, On behalf of myself and my dearly departed mother who held a special spot in her heart for you, may I offer you and my sincere sympathy and condolences.
I met Mr. Abdullah while working as a co-op at IBM and then would run into him when he was refereeing the JCHS basketball games. He always had a smile and a friendly hello. What a wonderful person he was...I am so sorry for your loss. Rest in peace Mr. Abdallah.
Candee & Joe,
My sincere condolences at the death of your Father and Grandfather. I remember Charlie so well from my years in the Tier -- especially at various sporting events. He was a great guy and certainly loved his family. Know of my prayers. God bless,
My dear friend Candee - I was very saddened to hear of the loss of your dad. My fond memory of him was our gathering at the Spot the last time I was in Binghamton - he was such a spirited and sweet man. My best to you and your family. Take care. Love Mary Ann
Candee and Joey, my deepest sympathy on the passing of your Dad/Grandfather. Such wonderful memories of summer nights at Recreation Park and all the info that "Tips" would share behind the backstop. Rest in Peace Charlie.
I worked for Charlie at IBM during the summer of 1978 and he was the friendliest person I've ever met. He had a heart of gold and a personality to match. If there was ever proof that humor enriches our lives and makes us live longer, Charlie was it. Heaven is a better place now.
Candy and Joe, So sorry for your loss. Charlie was a wonderful human being. He was my first coach ever in 1959 in the IBM Little League. He was always such a kind and giving individual. We continued to cross paths throughout our lives and he was always so genuinely happy to see you and always went out of his way to acknowledge you. I will never forget his kindness and generosity.
Tippers u r and always will be a special person in my life I will truly miss u and I know u r up above with Ur true love now and looking down upon everyone watching over. We love u tip
My husband, Bob Kilmer, often talked about Charlie and the Abdullah family. They were a big part of his childhood and he had many fond memories. My thoughts are with you and you are in my prayers.
Charlie was a great and caring person. It was always a pleasure to see Charlie.
Candee, I am sorry to hear about the passing of your father. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family

Joey and Candy,
Sorry to read of Charlie's passing. Prayers to your family. He was a such a nice guy.
I am so sorry to hear of this loss. Charlie use to give me a ride to work at IBM when I worked there as a co-op in high school. I remember Charlie very fondly working at Tony's store~ He was always a very kind, caring man. May you rest in peace and give Buddy a hug from me~ Joan (Carr) Reed
You will be forever missed never forgotten and will always live on in our hearts love you always your grandson Joey
Candee and family we are sorry to hear of the passing of Charlie. He will always have a special place in our hearts.
Candee, so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Candee & family,
My deepest sympathies to all of you from one of the many, many people whose life your dad touched. Working with Charlie at IBM was a day full of smiles, each and every day. He will be missed, but there's no doubt he's makin' 'em laugh as we speak!!
To The Entire Abdallah Family:
My sincerest condolences go out to all of you. I have never met a kinder and more caring man than Mr. Abdallah. I was fortunate to spend many many hours with him and Buddy playing golf, practicing golf, watching baseball, football, basketball, boxing, and golf. I know for a fact that nothing meant more to him than his family. Rest in Peace Charlie, you are once again with Buddy.
We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Abdallah family. He was a wonderful man. He will truly be missed.
Candee, We are sorry to learn of your loss. Your Father was a fine gentleman and a friend.
My deepest sympathy to the whole family. I met Charlie at the bank surrounded by many of his friends. He would always have a good story to tell and his most recent was when his buddies were hiding in the back room and his boss opened the door to a surprise party. You couldn't ask for a nicer person. You will be missed by many!
Here's to you Charlie.
Ron Kristin Moss and Kids
My Dad worked with Charlie at BSB in the parking lot. They had a lot of laughs! I remember Charlie when I was a child and he worked at "Tony's Store" on Leroy Street. We are so sorry for your loss. He was a wonderful man.
A man devoted to his family who shared all that he had to give and continued to humbly strive to give more. We will miss our Uncle Charlie, his great humor and comforting presence. His mother called him "The Angel of the Family" which, of course, he continues to be! Love to Our Cousins Candee, Joe, Caroline, and Allen. Uncle Charlie, Love a Thousand Times!
Candace and family ,I knew Charley from Byrons street store corner, he was always came down giving us sound advice and had a great way with all the young guys who hung out there, trying to keep us out of trouble ? He knew us all and always said hi even 50 + years later, a good man, He will be missed, your in our thoughts and prayers, Sincerely, Bob and Joanne Callahan Florida
We are so sad at the loss of our very dear friend Charlie. He was a gentle giant, and we will miss you "C.C". Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Now you are with your beloved son Buddy. Rest in peace.
May the God of all comfort strength the family and friends of Charles Abdallah during this very difficult time. Please peace and comfort in Psalm 65:2.
Candee and family
So very sad to learn of the passing of your Father. Having known Charlie for over 50 years, he certainly was one of a kind! He now joins Buddy just in time to cheer on their beloved Yankees.I will miss them both.
Mr. Abdallah was a good neighbor and a nice man. My condolences.
I remember Mr. Abdallah living next door to Alexander Hamilton School. We spent a lot of time and "Hamilton" and were able to get to know Mr. Abdallah. He was always very personable.
I'm so sorry to hear this. I worked with Charlie at BSB, and he was such a nice man. My sincere condolences to the family.
Candee, words cannot express my deepest sympathy to hear about the loss of your father. He was a wonderful man, one of a kind. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Love you . . .
