Charlie and I meet in 1968 when his family moved to Arizona. We went to Glendale High together but lost touch shortly thereafter.We reconnected years later. I will miss him. He is in the Lords care.

My deepest sympathy to Charlie's family & many friends. He was such a bright & funny spirit We went back to high school days & worked together at VI at 16. He was a stand up friend when my husband died in 2007. His loss leaves a deep hole in my life. May he rest in peace, & join his beloved Simi, in heaven. Amen
