Lots of memories with Charlie at One McDaniel Greene.  Just a kid out of Clemson, I had a great time helping him draft the stadium upper deck in '82.  He was a terrific architect and a decent human being.  I was very fortunate to have known and worked with him.

Rip - You know how much your Dad was loved in the construction field. I’ll never forget going to his office and he would be free handing drawings with his trusty mechanical pencil. I am glad that he and I were able to cross paths more than once during my career. He will be missed! Having lost my Father early in my life, I always enjoyed the guidance of the “older” generation to provide insight into projects and the design details. Charlie was always ready with a story and never made you feel like you were bothering him when you dropped in. Please know my prayers are with your entire family. He will be missed.

I don't think Charlie ever 'forgave' me for "convincing" him to play on the Church of Redeemer Men's Basketball team, many years ago....he told me was "in bed" for 2 days going thru 'muscle recovery'.  

Charlie was a true friend and would do anything for someone without seeking something in return.  Greenville will miss a "silent leader' of many stripes!

Safe passage, my friend!
