Charles, I've known you for about 20 years. You never overreacted. Always rolled with whatever punches life threw at you. "Steady Eddie" comes to mind. There is peace in knowing you've been reunited with your wife and daughter and that you're no longer lonely. You'll be missed. Love you

My beloved husband, Clayton grew up with Charley and always said he was a very honest man and a great friend. Clayton and Charley both worked and retired from Bell Helicopter, Charley retiring first. After Clayton retired and was on oxygen, he would ride to the grocery store with me and sat in the car waiting for Charley to bring someone's groceries to their car then Charley would drop by our car and visit with Clayton until I came out and he could put my groceries in our car. They had so much fun talking about their younger days. After Clayton passed away, Charley would always take my groceries out and place them in my car. He was such a great friend and loved by all who knew him. I know he and Clayton are sitting up in Heaven talking about all their good times as children and working at Bell Helicopter. RIP Charley.
