3/14/2023==I WORKED WITH CHARLIE FOR 42 OF THOSE 50 YEARS. HE WAS “ONE HECK OF A WELDER” HE WAS NOT VERY VOCAL BUT DID HAVE A GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR.
To Charlie’s family, I was very sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. You have my deepest sympathy. Charlie was a great employee. I could always count on him to get all of his projects done on time and done well.
He will be missed.
Charlie- don’t catch all of those bass up there.
