My condolence to Judy and all the family. I have fond memories with Charlie in our facilities meetings at Blessed Sacrament. If we were working on a project, Charlie would bring in Legos displays of how the project may look. Rest in peace My friend. I know that you are in heaven looking down upon us now. When ever I see a Lego, I’ll be thinking of you.

I have only met Charlie a few times, but I know what an important part of my wife’s growing up he was. She has shared story after story and I feel like I was there too. Charlie pulling the kids in the neighborhood with his garden tractor, Charlie studying to be a priest and most importantly, Charlie being the man she thinks of when she pictures a good and Godly man. I am Tim Northquist and my wife is Annie Allen-Northquist. Sarah and family - I will quote Annie in saying when Charlie reaches the pearly gates, there will be cheers in heaven for a job well done. God bless you all and my sincere sympathy!
