Always enjoyed shooting trap with Charlie, never forget when he use to drive that old ambulance to coffee creek, as soon as he would turn on the drive he would crank up the siren.

Charlie was a great friend and like a second Dad, I enjoyed the shooting trips out of state when we could sit and enjoy everyone's company play some cards and always plenty of good food, Charlie was a great grill master. Rest in peace my friend love you and will miss you.
