He is also survived by his brother and one of his best friends, James Collier, and his sister, Beverly Moses. In addition to his immediate family, Charles had a large extended family and network of friends too numerous to mention each by name. He was retired from medical equipment sales and service for several years and spent most days with his wife, family, and friends, enjoying his retirement and always helping others. Charles was an extraordinary man who deeply affected everyone who was lucky enough to know him. His love for his family and friends manifested itself through tangible actions every day. He didn’t just say he loved you—he showed it too. He was completely devoted to his wife and family, strong and unwavering in his beliefs and values, and so loving and compassionate.
