Sorry for your loss. May the Lord comfort you in your sorrow. Charles and I passed papers together in the old neighborhood. He was my first boss and co-worker. He was a good and kind friend.

Sorry to hear of Chuck’s passing. We worked together at Lesco/Turf Care. We could always find something interesting to talk about. I enjoyed my time working around him and remember how proud he was when his granddaughter was born. I’m sure he will be missed by all.
