Dear Carol,Spencer & Jim and family:
Sorry I can't come to the viewing hours but Fritz just got home from OSU Hospital where they removed a malignant brain tumor and I can't leave him by himself.

It was a shock to say the least to see of Charley's passing.Such a shame after all the years he worked and was ready to enjoy his retirement years.

You have our heartfelt sympathy and I will keep the whole family in prayer.God Bless.

Charlie was a good man, I never saw him he didn't smile and say hello. A lot of his fellow workers at Whirlpool, quickly became his friends, and will miss him greatly.

I have had the privilege to work with Charlie. When I was a teenager I worked for Charlie at the Gas Station he used to run. Again not so long ago helping him with some of his construction work that he did on the side. I'm sure Charlie could have found better help, and we didn't always agree on things. We worked pretty well together though, and I learned a lot from him. I was always afraid I would make a mistake while we were working on something. To often my fears would come true. Charlie would always say the same thing. Think Andy, think about what you're doing. One of the most important lessons you can learn I think. Although I don't think everything out correctly I'll always remember who tried to hammer that idea into my head. I love you Charlie.
My sympathy to all the family.

It is with sadness in our hearts that we send you our deepest sympathies. Charlie was a wonderful person. A hard working individual, always a smile and "Hello" on his lips. It was indeed a pleasure to have known him. As he received God into his heart last week, rest assured he is now with our glorious Lord. He is reaping the reward of his time on this earth. Golden streets and magnificent mansions are now his. No cares, no wants or worries, no pain. These things are promised to all who receive Jesus into their hearts. So, though it be hard, be glad that Charlie is now at peace, enjoying eternity with our Saviour. All our love, Dirk & Gina
