    I'm sorry to hear of Charlie's passing. I have many memories of Charlie as a teammate. We played together in JFL and High School. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  2. I remember Charlie from high school, boy he was such a cutie. He will be missed by many!

  3. My memories of Charlie are from many years ago in elementary school. He was always the first person chosen for any games we played in pe or at recess because he was such a great athlete. He was always very kind to me. I wish his family peace during this difficult time. Fly with the angels, Charlie!!
