I was so saddened to hear of Charlie's sudden passing. I extend my deepest sympathies to his family. He was always an inspiration to me that it is never too late in life to pursue one's passion. I am glad I was able to reconnect if only briefly recently.
Karen, I am so sorry for your loss. I learned a lot from Charlie when I worked for him. I will always remember his words "measure everything you can." Those simple words have stuck with me and have served me well throughout my career. I now pass those simple words to the people working for me. Thank you Charile for everything you did for me.
Karen, Lorraine and I share your sorry in the loss of Charles. Although we spent a lot more times with you, we have very fond memories of him as well.
You are in our hearts.

I won't pretend to have known him extremely well, nor for very long, but he may have been the only reason I have a degree from LSU and am doing what I do for a living now.
He was an amazingly comforting individual for those of us who will always struggle to accomplish what we perceive to be unknowable.
Ars Longa, Vita Brevis.
My parents knew his parents from Slidell. I have not seen him in a long time but knew he was teaching at LSU. May God comfort you and your family during this lost.He will be greatly missed by the ones he taught and worked with. Blessings.
Karen, I am so sorry for your great loss. You and your family are in my prayers.
May your love and memories carry you and family through your grief. I went to school with Charles - Class of 68 - Slidell - another good one gone
The world has lost an amazing man from what I've seen written. I did not know him personally and am at a loss for not knowing him but I do wish the family peace at his passing. We can't choose to hate death as it is a part of life but I pray GOD holds everyones hands and gives them peace that only he can provide. I know this is a terribly sad time but if sister Carol reads this please feel free to contact me @ email@example.com...my condolences to all...Shar Everhart Brooks
Dr. Egedy's passion for math brought his teaching to a level I have seen in few other teachers. His excitement brought in students with poor attention spans such as myself and made the subject more interesting. I am blessed to have been taught in his class and I hope to bless him with my prayers.
Dr. Egedy was one of the greatest teachers I ever had. In the fall of 2010, I took a differential equations class with him and immediately felt his passion for the subject. He really challenged me to excel and do my very best! When it came time to get letters of recommendation for dental school, I knew exactly who I would ask to write mine, Dr. Egedy. We always talked about his office, the best location in the building :) and of course, his granddaughter. I will always remember him and thank him greatly for his time as a teacher, mentor, and friend. I am so very sorry for y'all's loss - your family and the entire LSU community lost a really great and passionate man.
Our hearts are broken. We hope you take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you. You all are in our thoughts and prayers.
Dear Karen, Lauren, and Brian--
Judy and I were saddened to hear of Charlie's passing. Having worked alongside of him for 25 years, he impressed me with his intelligence, diligence, and ability to communicate his knowledge. He was also very hospitable and accepting of others. He will be missed by his friends, students, and co-workers.
My heart and prayers are with you at this time of such great loss. May you find comfort in your treasured memories of Charlie. I enjoyed many interesting talks with him through the years.
Dear Karen and family,
I send my deepest sympathy. There are no words that can express how sorry I am for your loss. Mr. Egedy very helpful and understanding when a student was in need. Again I am so sorry.

Thoughts and prayers are with Karen and family. I enjoyed many chats with Charlie during my time at LSU. Remember the good times.
I have only the fondest memories of my friendship with Charlie. Centered around chess, we played games over the years, enjoyed tourneys together, meeting in coffee shops and bookstores to play and chat about chess, or work or math, finally sharing the joy of teaching at LSU. I will miss Charlie and offer my heartfelt condolences to Karen and the children.
