I worked with Charlie for 7 years at AIW from 96-03. He was a very hard and loyal worker and took his job seriously. He was known to lend a few dollars to others until payday and always had us laughing. He was such a character one guy even dressed up as him for Halloween and Charlie was so proud of that. We all loved it. I still randomly sing songs and phrases that I learned from Charlie. Thank you for everything Charlie. My condolences to the family.

May you rest in peace. I worked with you for 20 years at Alamo Iron Works. I will always remember and appreciate all your help. It was my first time working in a warehouse and you made it easier to learn all the merchandise. You were always willing to help anyone that needed help. I will always remember you Charlie.

You were a wonderful young man when you attended St. Gerard Regional High School. I remember both you and your sister as if it was yesterday. The Lord is with you. You have received the blessing and reward of being with the Lord, our goal in life. To your family, I thank them for sharing you for all these years.
