Online Condolences


  1. Julie and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Chuck in the USPS for a number of years. I just learned of his passing. He was a wonderful person in so many ways. God bless your family.

  2. Dear Julie, Michael, Carrie, John, Charles and Kathy. Such a beautiful and loving family you all have. Death is such a sad time because we realize we may not see our loved one for a long time, but it is also difficult to remember that in the Lord’s time, we will all be together again. When you feel a breeze or get an unexpected chill up your spine, I believe this is when Charlie is telling you he is with you and he is ok. When you feel this, you might want to talk with him, as I do when my loved ones come to me–it really helps, believe me.
    I’m here is you need me.
    Love, Aunt Sue

  5. I knew Charlie as we grew up in our wonderful neighborhood. He was one of the best little kids, always smiling. We all had such a great time growing up. As adults we ran into each other one day and recognized each other immediately. We reminisced about the fun years together as if time had not passed. I pray now for his mother, Joan, and his family. May his smile and happy memories warm their hearts in the days ahead. – Angela Colardo Hawkins

  6. Dear Julie and family,
    Deb and I were so sorry to hear about Charlie’s passing. His passing was particularly hard on me as I had the greatest respect and admiration for Charlie from the first time I met him.
    Even as a 12 year old, I admired him; always the jokester but always respectful. As a father, he had a wonderful knack of seeing and handling situations the right way. And his ” people-person” skills were on full display in our golf league. He was truly a wonderful addition to the league.
    Again, our most heartfelt condolences and warmest regards.-Bob Nicholas

  7. Please accept our deepest condolences in the death of your loved one. He is at peace now. We will continue to pray for the family.
