During all those years at Raytheon. He will be sadly missed
By fellow workers and friends.

To Charlie’s Family,

I truly enjoyed meeting your Husband/ Dad at the Senior Center in the Computer Club. He taught me lots, no matter how often he had to explain the same thing over and over again.

I hope you find comfort of God’s promise of eternal life in the loss of one so dear.
