  1. Even though I didn’t know Charles in the later years, I have very fond memories of grade school and junior high. I know he will be missed. Love and prayers to his family and friends.

  2. Rest In Peace old friend we had lots of good times in high school. It was good visiting with you a few weeks ago you will be missed.

  3. I so hate to see this. Charles, as I knew him, was a classmate all the way back to SF Austin Jr. High. We have crossed paths a few times in our adult lives and I will miss knowing he isn’t here anymore…..sending love to his family and all who loved him
