  1. I am saddened to hear of the passing of Charlie. My condolences and prayers go out to his family.

    I had my very first fire my second week on the SFD with Charlie. We know sooner arrived and Charlie was up on a ground ladder hard at work ventilating the building to aid in fire extinguishment.

    He was a great firefighter and more importantly he was just a great guy. That smile you see on his photo was ever present. Just one heck of a gentleman.

    Charlie, rest in peace. You will be missed by many, but never forgotten.
