Charlie has lived his life to the max these last few years. With the loss of all but a little of his vision, he adapted with the help of his wife Kay, family, and his amazing friends. He continued with fishing, hunting, and attempts at golf. He loved his family, friends, good stories, jokes, laughter, and always sports -Go Heels- and the occasional cocktail!
