Life feels short until the end. That is when we look back on the journey and realize all we have done. Let us all celebrate what he has done. Let this tree be a semblance of the roots he grew from and the fruit his life produced.

I knew him through small moments in life. I married into his wonderful extended family. But, in my experience, it doesn't take long to know who Uncle Butch was as a man. The world lost a positive role model for young men. I pray for the family and celebrate having known him. A man's man.

So sorry to hear this news. Worked with Charlie for 3 years back in the 90s before I moved back to Ireland. as professional as he tried to keep it.... We had a great laugh together. He's never been too far from my thoughts ever since. RIP Charlie. Condolences to his family and friends.
