    I am very sorry to hear of the passing of Charles. I worked with Charles for many years at American Door and Glass and always enjoyed working with him. It was a pleasure and a good time. He knew his job and helped me out of many situations. He was a kind and caring person who would help anyone that needed help. I could write a book on the good laughs we had. I didnt live far from him when he lived at the “Pond”. It was the 1980s and I had just bought a big floor model TV and needed help getting it out of the truck and into the house. I drove over to the pond and knocked. Charles answered the door with a bourbon and water in his hand. I asked him if he was in “good enough shape” to help me with the TV and of course he said yes though I had my doubts. When we got back to my house I was getting a little nervous about Charles as he mentioned on the way over that his drink was the 4th one he had had. When we got to the truck and started to slide the TV out Charles sat his drink on top of the TV. As we began to lift the TV up and take on the weight I asked Charles to please not drop it, he looked at me and very calmly and said I wont spill a drop! I almost dropped my end laughing so hard. That was Charles a kind and good spirit.
