My friend always willing to help someone in need . Heading to Foxboro to work a snowstorm at 2 am and blew the motor in my truck. Before the storm was over had the keys to old blue for as long as I needed it. Had more good times than bad , loved my kids as if they were his own . They say laughter adds to your life then my friend you added years to mine . I'll miss you KA

Uncle Charlie - More than an Uncle to me.
A Father, a friend, a mentor and brother in life.
Always the one that gave me lifetime advice, whether I asked for it or not.
My favorite, of many upon many was simply put -
"Hold on tight with both hands"
I use and give this advice and always will. It always applies in good times and bad.
The old saying of giving the shirt off your back must have come about from someone
that knew Charlie. He would help anyone, anywhere, anytime.
I will really miss this one of kind human being and have countless memories of all the times I spent with him - as he always told me that's what we were doing
"Building Memories"
Rest In Peace Charlie - You will always be with us.
