  1. We will always cherish the many wonderful memories of Charlie! He was much loved and will be greatly missed.

  2. To the family, I am deeply saddened by the grief you are feeling.
    Knowing of God’s love for you, continue to look to him when “he will wipe out all tears from our eyes, death, pain, and suffering will be no more. ” – Revelation 21:3,4
    He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing ” – 1 Corinthians 15:26
    How comforting to know that this will be a thing of the past and through Christ Jesus a resurrection for our loved ones.


  3. I will miss Charlie greatly. He was a longtime friend on Guam and had a special affinity for a good pun. 🙂
    He also had a tender heart for young people and worked impacted numerous kids thru Faith Church–so many
