I had the pleasure of meeting Charlie almost 20 years ago when he gave me the opportunity to work in the service industry. Charlie carried himself with an inviting and charismatic quality that never wavered. My time in Savannah with him only lasted a handful of years but he made them impactful. He easily ranks as one of my favorite colleagues. Along with many other wonderful co-workers, his influence encouraged a family atmosphere. Thinking back, Charlie was the main driving force in making those relationships more sincere and our work environment more gratifying. I will always remember him with a smile and a positive attitude. I was lucky to know him.

- Daniel Piper

I met Charlie while I was in high school. He was part of a small group of friends I had while I was there. He treated people well no matter who they were. I enjoyed my times in high school with him and the times ever since. He was fun to be around. I wish I knew him better. God be with you.

- Joe DeLorme, Savannah, Georgia

Rest easy Charlie. Love you brother.

We send our deepest condolences and prayers from Cyrus and Heather Wells.

May The Lord welcome you Home with Open Arms, Charlie. And may He carry your family through this difficult time. Though i haven't seen you since we graduated from BC, you were still a brother and we will miss you. Joe
