So sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing .He used to have many stories to share when I worked at Evans’ Village Shoppe.He even shared some of his top secret recipes with me.One was the best crispy fish batter and an awesome macaroni salad one .He used to say that he really loved to cook and would tell us tales from the sea.Take care,Linda.
Nobody could liven up a party (or a dancefloor!) like Uncle Charlie. We will miss his warmth, his humour, his love of family and his kind heartedness. We will always remember the great visits and Charlie-hugs.
With love and deepest sympathy,
