Charles will be remembered for his unconditional and dedicated love for his family. He always had the willingness to lend a hand at a moments notice. He would literally give you the shirt off his back if he had to. Charles was a great listener, he was genuine, kind hearted, and generous.

  5. Chuck was such a great guy. I loved talking sports with him. I get the impression that he was quite an athlete, and whenever we got on the topic of all of it, the boy in the man was larger than life. The La Quinta family (which includes the entire neighborhood, not just La Quinta Drive) will miss you dearly, and I personally look forward to the day when we are reunited!!!!
