I loved Charlie being so down to earth. We were at a barbecue, don't remember whose house, but eating like there was no tomorrow. Charlie was really chowing down on lots of things but was loving the potato salad. I happened to have made the potato salad and was interested in his comment. "I never had potato salad like this before, I could just die eating salad like this." He asked who made it and I told him. He asked if I would marry him. He and I were both married at the time but he didn't care. I told him the secret was blue cheese in the mix-just a little, and he told me he didn't like blue cheese but he'd marry me anyway if I'd make him potato salad everyday for the rest of his life. A life lost much too soon.

"Chuck" and I dated and enjoyed many fun filled times during Senior year. I remember most his laughter..a "kidder" but never unkind. He was a loyal friend who encouraged & celebrated the accomplishments of others WITH them.  ( as evidenced by Gloria's potato salad story)  We always double dated ( Ron Chambers, Mike McGrath, Rog Campbell etc...since he had no "wheels" and I lived at LAFB with a Dad who required dates come to the door)...again a reflection of true friendship....for  I'm certain there were times when those guys would have preferred "doubling" with someone who lived closer... Chuck was always a gentleman and a GENTLE man. He was so proud of earning his letter in track, being a member of L club,of his team mates, coaches, and the LHS Links  they represented. While saddened to hear of his passing I am encouraged  by the legacy he left with family and friends and those he coached. I truly thank God for Chuck's  memorable although brief presence in my life.
