I always said that I looked up to Charlie. He thought I meant his height. I meant his nature/character. Charlie was easy to like and easier to respect. Joanie, so sorry for your loss.RIP Mark Toth

I got to know Charlie through my work with HMMC, HIDA and Repertoire magazine. I have great admiration of his never-ceasing curiosity about the industry he was involved in for 50 years. He was a life-long learner and a role model for me. I am so sorry for your loss. He is a loss to many!
