    Harold and I are so sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. He fought the good fight and never let his struggle get him down. I had a great time bantering with him over politics and I know how much Harold loved playing golf with him. RIP Charlie, your job is done.

    Charlie was always upbeat when we worked together at Edgewater Elementary. What a great guy and quite an active man. Lots of laughs. We have to remember that Charlie didn’t pass on, he passed over to a better place. It is up to all who knew Charlie to pass him on to others through their hearts and minds. My Deepest Sympathy to Barbara and family. Ken Dunn
