I met Charles when we attended VCU in the 1960's. Charles was definitely a friendly nice guy to all people. Back then Charles and I would talk about cars. I remember when he brought the 1968 Chevrolet with the 396 4 speed. We once raced and Charles won in that car. He was really a good guy.

Minshew family I give you my condolences. I worked for Charles back in the early '80's and he was the best man to work with. Always laughing and smiling, just a loyal and respectable guy that everyone loved and cared for. In Loving Christ.

Charles and I graduated together from HHS in 1964. An all around good guy. Always had a smile to offer!
