Charlie was truly a great, lifelong friend of mine. I worked under his supervision for many years and learned so much from him. All I had to do when there was a decision that had to be made was ask myself what would Charlie do. I could never go wrong then.
I remember one weekend when he asked Jim White, Bill Bernson, and I to come over his house to install an above ground pool. Its a good thing Bill was with us or we'd never have succeeded! We had a lot of laughs that day along with the many, many times we all got together at my house on Merrimack for pool parties. What great times those were. Not many of us remembered the entire evening because we had a "few" too many. What fun! Marlene and I sure do miss those times and we often talk about them. Lifelong memories there.
Rest in peace my friend. Hope we meet up down the road...
