Sorry to hear about our loss. He will be missed. We all loved working with him. He was always cheerful and joking. His experience was vast and very helpful, especially his “Rucker Wire”, still talked about at shop. Thank you all for sharing him with us. Take care of yourselves.

Drema, CJ, and Family,
The good are always gone too soon and Charlie was one of the best. His smile let you know that he was glad to see you and he always took time to talk and to listen. I remember being sad many years ago, when he left to join the Navy and then being so happy to see him and proud of him when he came home on leave in his uniform. He loved his family and was absolutely crazy about his grandchildren. I hope they always remember what a terrific Grandfather he was. He will truly be missed. Love you all,
Rhonda Taylor Davis
