To The King Family,

Our sincere condolences to the entire family during this somber time. My Dad and your Dad work at Youngstown Steel for 40+ years together and were such close friends that we called your Dad Uncle Charles. I've always thought of the King Family as my family. Uncle Charles was just a wonderful, full-of-life and laughter type of person and fiercely protective of his family like my Dad was protective of us. Uncle Charles presence and voice would fill any room and demanded attention.....your grief is our grief.....Lasting love to the King Family and RIP Uncle Charles

Charles you are truly gonna be missed.. I hate that i didnt get a chance to say c u later b4 you left.. After hearing that you had passed, all i can think about is all the good times we had.. You watched me grow up to be the women,wife& mom that i am. You have always been that father figure to me.. I remember you walking me to school and watching me from the alley to make sure i got to school safe. I have sooo many good memories of you.. I will never forget you.. I love you and you will truly be missed..
