My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Charles. I remember him from PA High School as a friendly and all round "good guy". His loss is Heaven's gain. I know he will be sorely missed by the "Codgers".

It seems like just last year we were bowling ducks at Pla-Mor in Arlington. Turns out that was 43 years ago. In all those years, Charlie has been the easiest going friend I have ever known. I will miss our get togethers to catch up with what is going on, relax, and enjoy each other’s friendship. (It’s your turn)

Shed a tear or two for Charlies passing, but not for too long. Charlie would not want that.
Remember the good times and smile a little.

Charlie is not gone, just down the road a ways and over the horizon where we will all meet again one day.

Our heartfelt condolences and prayers to all.

To my Goodell Family, I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Charlies passing. Even though our families split years ago we still are family and I never stopped calling him my uncle. He along with so many others will be greatly missed.
