  1. Charlie was a great guy. Always willing to help you out if he could and he could lot of things. We will miss our sibling get togethers. He always made them fun with his silly jokes. He was a big joke telling guy. We will miss you Charlie.

  2. Charlie and I were high school classmates at Englewood High School. We were out of touch for many years until we became reacquainted after seeing each other at King Soopers in Bear Valley. We both shopped on Thursday and often would see each other and stop and enjoy a friendly chat reminiscing about those bygone days.
    We will miss those visits.

  3. Loved this man beyond words. I’m going to miss you Dad something awful. Thanks for teaching me everything from cooking to changing oil on my car. You are so loved Dad and we made so many fond memories that I will cherish for always!

  4. Charlie was a wonderful person full of life, kind and generous and a gambler. I will miss him a lot. May you rest in peace Charlie you will always be in our hearts.

  5. Only knew Charlie for around 10 years but always enjoyed being around him. He always had a weird joke or two to share and bring out the laughs. Charlie and Anita joined us for many holiday meals in that time. His daughter Jennifer is my daughter in law and much loved by our family. My thoughts and prayers are with all of his family. He will be greatly missed.

  6. I am one of Julie’s sister in laws. When her parents came to Hawaii I remember her father being a very funny and loving person. He was always cracking jokes. He will be greatly missed. My heart brakes for the family. Prayers are sent out. Rest in peace.

  7. Charlie was always a thoughtful and happy person. Anytime I ran into him he would always ask about Al, who shared Charlies love of fixing things. Charlie had a great love for Anita and used to tell me about their days “up the hill” if I’d run into him at the store. He will truly be missed.

  8. I grew up one block around the corner from Charlie and Anita. Charlie always had a big smile, and a joke to tell, or a story to tell. He had the best poker face, you never knew if he was yanking your chain or not. Him and my husband shared the same birthday and for years enjoyed the same favorite cocktail. You will be missed Charlie.

  9. Uncle Charlie will be missed by all that knew him. He used to always help me with any problems I had with any of my vehicles and he would do it willingly. Loved running into him and Anita up in Central City. He was never at a loss for telling a joke. I truly enjoyed being able to visit him toward the end of his life as we talked about Jesus welcoming him home as he told me he was praying every night. Gives me great joy to know that He will be in Heaven, telling his jokes to many of those that have left us before Him.

  10. We were so sorry to hear about Charlie. He was such a helpful, caring, fun guy. He certainly took great care of Anita and loved his whole family. We were so lucky to spend so many fun times with Charlie, Anita and all of the family over the years. Wishing all of his family peace and love.
