Charlie was one of a kind. I am truly at a loss for words - we had just been talking and laughing the afternoon before. Charlie is truly one of the best guys I have ever worked with - by far he is one of the smartest most talented pipefitters/welders/mechanics/riggers......
Charlie was just one of those ALL around good guys! I know how much Charlie loved the Lord so I do take peace in knowing that his struggles here on earth are done. However, I am so sorry for the loss you are all feeling. My prayers are with you all. God bless.

A brother that everyone was imprinted by. Gonna miss everything you didn’t teach me but will cherish everything you did teach me. Rest easy my friend, I’m sure there is pipe to be fixed where you are now and I look forward to manning your crew again. The loss to us is a painful one but the gains to the heavens is much more to their coffers than what the heavens had braced for.

Love ya Brother, gonna miss the mystery drinks!
