Charles & I shared band together at CHS until he traded his trumpet for a football! We remained friends throughout high school & I always enjoyed seeing him at class reunions. I know his passing will leave a great void since you have been together since high school. May the thoughts & prayers of friends and family help comfort you during this difficult time.

He always had a smile on his face, and a story from his heart. Such a kind and generous man. He will be missed. Continued prayers for your family. - Roger Tarrant
