I'm sad to hear about your passing Charlie. I'll always be grateful to you for letting me sell my Maine shrimp from the parking lot of your garage, when no one else would. We had a lot of fun hanging out, and joking around, for a lot of years. Rest in peace, bud.

Rest In Peace, Charlie. You were always ready to lend a helping hand, whether it was providing a tool when our stone wall fell, or giving a lift to a total stranger trudging back from the neighborhood sledding hill. And we will always remember our amazement the morning the American Pickers paid you a visit!

Going to miss you Pal, a huge loss to everyone who knew you. We stayed in contact all these years, was hard to watch you suffer @ the end. Have soooo many stories of great times we had, I'm sure I've forgotten more than I remember. At least you are no longer in pain & anguish, the only comfort today. R.I.P. my friend, Steven

I am so sad ! You were a great friend to me and memories of the years camping in New Hampshire, hanging at gas station and the big house in Newtonville are fond ones! Thank you for all you've done and all the fun we had with the whole gang!

You were always there for Jimmy Pillion and our family. Working on Jimmy's truck with Chip Andersen.
Seeing you in the White and Red truck plowing in the winter, and the red car in the summer. Wonderful man. Seeing the truck from the Pickers in front of your house, and you could not say a word. Jimmy thought I was lying. The memories will be cherished.

I have so many fond memories of times in NH over the last almost 50 years. Charlie will surely be deeply missed.
