My husband and I often sat in the same pew at church with Charlie. It was always a pleasure to see him. We know from our conversations that he loved you, his family. We will miss his smile.

My sympathy goes out to all the family of Charles for their loss. May the peace of our Lord be with each and everyone of you. Charles and I are first cousins and spent time together in our youth at his home on 2nd St in Dillsburg playing and working. As in many instances, we do not stay in touch enough with each other through the years. Even though Charles and my paths only crossed a few times in the last several years, i will miss him.

Charlie and I grew up in the same neighborhood in Dillsburg, one double house and one street apart. We were one year apart in school. I never remember of Charlie saying an angry word to any one in the neighborhood. My condolences to Delores, his only surviving sibling, and to his children and grandchildren.

Knaub Family,

Charley was one of the first supervisors I had at Fry. He was great with training people and I learned a lot from him. I saw him from time to time after his retirement. He was always a pleasure to talk to. Condolences to the family.
