  1. So sorry for your loss, Charlie was a great man, He was hard working and always helpful to many. I remember the times my Charlie would work on his Mom’s tractor and get it running. Then Charlie would come and ask mine why did he fix her tractor, he was putting it off so she would not be out up in the vinyards alone. Charlie E. will be missed by many. Remember all those good times and remember all those stories sharing with all the young ones as those were great times and days for everyone. My prayers are with each of you as your loss will be great as there will never be another Charlie E.
