Reading through everyone’s notes about you a few months after you have passed brings me to tears once again. I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve taught me in my 19 years of life. I’ll miss the never ending phone calls, and donut dates. I love you forever and a day, Pop pop thank you for simply being you. My heart breaks that you’re no longer here, until we meet again. I love you.

Denise, Geoff and the girls: our deepest sympathies. Charlie, as we knew him, was a great man and a good friend. Although it was sad to see him fade, he kept smiling and sounding positive. We'll miss him.

I’ll always remember going to the DCFD Credit Union as a young firefighter trying to get a loan and being terrorized by Charlie with his gruff persona, but as I was leaving I would always see this wry smile on him. It was pretty funny.

RIP and condolences to his loved ones.
