Mr. Charles was a good man and like another father to a lot of us growing up. He always looked out for us when we were hanging out his house with his sons. I remember conversations with him about him and my family and he was always joking and laughing with me about those memories. I’ve been friends with the family for many years now so this loss has struck us all. I’m glad his time on earth he got to see his 2 sons become amazing fathers themselves and him getting to become a grandfather to 2 precious little girls. He will truly be missed and my prayers go out to all those that were affected by his passing. R.I.P Mr. Charles

Mrs. Lineberger, my sincere condolonces to you and your family. Charles was a friend and a good and faithful employee. I will never forget my true grief when we were forced to lay Charles off at Metal Tech. He had worked his butt off helping us achieve a superior safety rating. I wish you and your family nothing but the best.
