    So sad to hear of Charlie’s passing Sherry. He was one of a kind and could a whole room captive with his tales. Hours of laughter shared will not soon be forgotten. He was a big part of my family’s tenure at Lehigh. Uncle, brother, cousin and me. Began in I think 1945 and ended with my retirement in 2020. He may not have always done exactly what he was supposed to, but he as the first one to wade in boot top deep no matter how dusty, dirty or hot. He knew what needed to be done and did it. You are in my thoughts and prayers. peace, ~pete

    Sherry, I am so sorry for your loss. Words never seem to describe nor take away the pain of losing someone we love, but I hope the beautiful memories left behind will bring you the comfort and love you need to get through this difficult time. To Uncle Charlie, ( the man whose bark was worse than his bite) you will forever be in my heart and in my memories. Rest In Peace!
