Charlie was a teaching colleague at Greeley West during my years there. I know he did well with his special education students! He has died at a young age. My thoughts go with you, his family members. Sincerely, Ila Leavy, English Department, Greeley West High 1976-1990.

I worked with Charlie at John Evans. What a hoot he was to work with and he was so, so good with the kids. He will always be one of my very fond memories my first few years in District 6. Great person, great friend.
