Ilene - my sincere condolences on the loss of your Charlie. I remember him stopping in to see you at First National Bank at Highland Square and that smile lit up our entire office. His smile would get even brighter when he saw you. Very kind and gentle man...very sorry for your loss.

Many years have passed since seeing Charlie - he was a good friend - worked together for traffic safety in our community. He will be missed. Dave Fielder

We shared treasured times with you and Charlie together with Judy, Ron And Michelle. Sending hugs to you Ilene. God bless

I have fond memories of roughhousing as a small child with my late uncle Charles in my grandparents living room, sailing with him at Turkeyfoot Island club on his snipe and hearing his stories about bareboat chartering on the Chesapeake. He was always a warm ,kind ,engaging and fun uncle. He never lost the humor and mischievous of a middle Schooler.Mentally sharp until his last day, kind to all, strong in his convictions he will be missed. His legacy will be appreciated and remembered.May God...

Our thoughts and sympathies Ilene. He was one of the kindest men I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
