Aaron, Joe and Scott
We were very sadden today to read that your Dad had past away. Charlie was a very special man. Having him as friend all those years was such a pleasure. His smiles, jokes and always a pleasant personality will be remembered allways. It was an honor that he asked us to be his son Scotts Godparents. Can never forget that day in California when we all went to the base church for the ceremony with barf bags in our pockets, due to the trip we took to mexico and capistrano. Laughing at that gas pump that said 200+ dollars for a fill up, not knowing that it was in peso's. Visiting you all in New York State. Very fond memories for sure. He made a lot of children happy when he dressed up as Santa for the parades. or shooting off the fireworks in Busters back yard on the 4th of July. A true gentleman and will always be remembered. Rest in Peace Charlie, Bill and Kathy Emond

My older brother whom I fought with growing up, but as adults we became best friends. I will miss our visits and sharing boiled peanuts with you when I came for a visit to North Carolina from Oregon. Bless you and I love you. Sissy

I didn’t know you very well as a child due to our family circumstances; however, as a young adult we crossed paths and became good friends. You have left me with great memories of an awesome Uncle who was always welcoming and funny. I’ll remeber you and your laugh always. - Love you
