  3. Pam Donohue – The Table of Hope

    Although I don’t know Charles’ family, I wanted to share my condolences with you. I was the coordinator of The Table the first year we existed, and Charles was a faithful volunteer. He was and will continued to be missed at The Table. We enjoyed his presence and appreciated all of his help. My deepest sympathies to his family.

  4. Words will never be able to describe how much Charles (known to most as Chuck or Charlie) will be missed by his beloved family,friends, and everyone who he came in contact with. He was a devoted father, grandfather, friend,companion,and a Christian who spent his life trying to make the world a better place in his own special way and anyone who even remotely knew him can safely say that he accomplished exactly that.

    His easing presence,generous heart, and warm smile will be remembered forever. May God bless the home of Charles,Kim, & December by bringing them piece and comfort in this saddest of times as well as provide comfort for all of us who knew and loved him.

    Chuck always made everyone who came to his home feel warm and welcome as if he had known them all of his life,He always put others first and wanted to help everyone even when he wasn’t in the position to do so.That was the code he lived by,always helping and caring for others.He was truly the genuine article.I could go on for hours.

    Thank you for over two decades of friendship,memories,smiles. and always being there for me in good times,bad times and everything in between.I will never forget you and keep you in my heart forever. Until we meet again..Rest peacefully with the Lord and keep an eye on us down here. I Love You Chuck.
