    Charlie was the nicest guy! Not only was he a professional and loyal employee but a very good family friend. He was extremely knowledgeable about so much of the farm supply business and you always got a straight answer from him. He was our rock and a great manager for over thirty years with us. He was the best. Rest in peace, Charlie.
