  1. I am sorry to hear this, Charles was my favorite male cousin, I loved him dearly, all the good times as children growing up. When we both moved back to Swansboro, he would come over , get a haircut and we would laugh and have the best time. I know he will be missed by many.

  2. We are so sorry to hear of his passing. He was always so much fun and had a great speaking voice, dancing & story-telling abilities. He loved his children very much & we hope they always know that.
