  1. Saddened to learn of the loss of one of the truly fine individuals from my high school days. Charles was a leader, a friend, and an all-around great guy. I treasure a lot of memories—including his role in organizing our senior trip and the way he represented BHS at Boys State.

    Condolences to Carolyn and the other family members.
