Charlie were students at WHS. I think he graduated the year before I did. We did not know one another well in those days. The next time I saw him was when we both were hired by Sylvania Electric in South Wheeling in 1959. I had recently been discharged from the US Navy and he mentioned he had been the US Army.
I haven’t seen him since 1960. Very sorry to hear of his passing. He always came
across as a very sincere and friendly individual.

Charlie stood up for what was right. His name is memorialized in West Virginia legal history on an often cited WV Supreme Court case Muzelak v. King Chevrolet, Inc., 368 S.E.2d 710, 179 W.Va. 340 (1988). I have not spoken to him since 1985, but I’m sure to thank him when we meet again. “The Lord is righteous, He loves justice.; upright men will see His face.” Psalm 11:1

I am truly sorry for your loss. I’m sure losing someone you love is very difficult, and Charles will be missed. However, comfort can be found at Revelation 21:4 which says, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
