  • Maryjane and family I am at a loss for words. 60 years a friend and the best kind of friend. One you didn’t see often but if you picked up the phone he would be there. A 2 tour Vietnam vet, who had a very dangerous job first tour. He was a rhone plow operator. they cleared the jungle pretty much by them selves and about 60% of the POW;s in the south were plow operators few survived being captured. He was a hero, but you wouldn’t hear it from him. I even had Charley fly my Huey from Blackhorse to Long Binh. I mentioned his passing to a classmate and he said I remember him, he was always smiling I’d like to remember him that way. God Bless.

  • Mary Jane and family – We are so sorry for your loss. Charlie was such a good hearted and fun loving person. Many great memories of all of us riding together back in the day, and you know I’m talking 40 to 45 years ago! Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Much love, Lenny and Cathy Novak

  • Maryjane and all of the family. I am keeping you all in my prayers and will forever remember CW with love and a smile!
