So sorry to hear of the passing of Charlie. Charlie and I shared the Position of Distrbution Superintendent at Bozrah Electric Company for a couple of years back starting in 2000. Charlie was a self made man, very independent and self motivated. I know he will be missed by all that knew and loved him.

Norma and Steven so sorry to hear about Charlie's ( to me he will always be Dad) passing. He was a wonderful father in law to me. I've thought of him often in the past few years. May he rest in peace. He will always be missed. 💜

to Charlie Jr. and the family please know how sorry I am to learn of an old friends passing.
We'll never forget the time he had to drive us home in a snow storm (Easter 1970)and then he carried the baby up the driveway. That was the kind of guy he was. I'll miss him and will say a prayer for him. Pat and Jim Rondeau
