    Charlie was a relatively recent friend. Our passion for the hunt of old fishing and hunting items drew us together. He was proud to show his newest finds or ask if I had anything for him. I used his extensive knowledge of fishing lures more than once. He also told me who not to trust. I’ll miss our getting together and friendship.
