  1. Dad i am so glad that i was able to have you as my father. I won the lottery . I cherish all the times we had together whether it was going baiting, fishing, going on holidays in the tent and then the van , as well as all our conversations.
    There was always laughter and funny jokes in our family. You always spoke the truth and knew when we needed advise. I will miss the smell of your pipe
    and hearing your voice, but I know you are looking down on us and will always be there.
    Till we meet again, love Pamxxxxx

  4. Charlie/Puss/Pop, what an honour it is to have known you and been in your life. You have a unique gift of being able to light up a room, and make everyone around you feel comfortable and welcome. We will miss your charming smile and warm laugh terribly. You and Joan have raised an absolutely beautiful family that we are so lucky to know!
    We are thinking of all of them in this difficult time, but we know that they will band together and be strong – knowing that you will be with them every step of the way throughout the future.
    You will be forever missed and we love you very much! Rest in piece, and keep fishing! xoxo

  9. Uncle Charlie, I have always looked up to you like a grandparent, so you will be missed is an understatement for the family. We will always remember the scent of your tobacco pipe and the humour you shared.

    Rest well,

  11. Charlie,

    You are without a doubt the strongest person I have ever met. You instilled confidence in so many people for them to be better than they thought they could ever be on their own. You are a true definition of the word perfection. Whilst nobody may be perfect you displayed all the attributes that a perfect person has. It was an honour to be a part of your family, a family that you created, raised and cherished for so very long. A family that you were taken from far to soon.

    I can’t even begin or to understand what life is like without you around for all of the people that loved and cared for you. But I know that you wouldn’t want them to be living in regret. I’m sorry that I didn’t get to spend more time with you, to share more laughs, to catch more fish and to listen to all those memories that you have from your wise years of growing up.

    It was a pleasure to have known you, a opportunity for me to develop more as a person an opportunity to understand what true commitment and love is- you are the pinnacle for that. There is no doubt in my mind.

    I hope that I did you proud when I was around, I’m sorry if I have let you down. I will always love you like my own grandfather- that will never change you are such an incredible man.

    Come along for a ride down at the Daly next year I’ll save you a seat May 10th.

    Rest well my friend
