I remember this tall very kind and well manored guy.  I'm not really sure if we were friends but I feel I knew him slightly better than just a face. So sad so many have passed, aren't we still pretty young?

Charlie was very kind and a friend of mine.   You are missed.

My brother "Charlie" was such a kind and sweet person. He started reading around 3-4 years old. Our dad took him to a local wrestling match. He went into the ring and started reading various material the fans gave him. The fans threw coins into the ring. He came home with his pockets loaded with the cash. He was born in July. When he started kindergarten in Sept, since he could read, the principal promoted him to first grade and he skipped kindergarten. He went to the U of U and was studying computer programing. That Memorial Day weekend was a sad time, he never learned how to swim. He fell out of the boat. We gave him a nice send off when he arrived back to SLC. Miss him!

One night, Chuck and I were sitting at a bar on the south end of Sugarhouse listening to a friend vent about his marriage and we would offer some advice. Chuck got up, said he had to go because they were going fishing in the morning and that he would be back in a couple of days. We made plans to get together when he returned. Days later, as I walked in the door, my mother sat me down and with a tear in her eye showed me the Obits section of the SL Tribune. Charlie was gone, the same guy who walked the March of Dimes walk with me, we raced cars together, ate lunch off campus, and was known for his great smile and outgoing personality. But not forgotten:  Every year when I clean the headstones of my ancestors, I drive to the top of the SL Cemetery to the headstone marked "Sol Fox", brush it off and leave a flower. Thanks Chuck for the good times.... and the memories.

Charlie and I were best friends in Jr. High, South didn't see him as much but Karl, Charlie and I used to play pinball at the Greyhound Station or Poker at my house or his, Carolyn is a Teacher and doing great things.

Miss you Charlie, how South could allow anyone to Graduate without teaching everyone to survive in the water, just a little swimming with the Pool we had is a crying shame. He is so smart, funny and a great friend.

True to form, I forgot my sportcoat on picture day when I was a senior.  Being the friend he was, Charlie stepped up and loaned me his coat.  Everytime I look at our senior pictures, I smile and think about Charlie and how he always made me (and everyone) smile.
