Sorry and sad to learn of Charles' passing. We graduated from Malvern High School in 1962 and he was a classmate from Junior through Senior High. He was a solid, quiet and nice guy who was respected through his school days. Charles was a good-natured person with a smile and I recall his teachers thinking well of him and his courtesy to all. He and Eddie Pennington always appeared side by side in class photos. Sounds as though he continued to live a good, wholesome and fulfilling life.
My condolences to his family in this time of grief. He will be well remembered.
