Connie and family my deepest and heart felt sympathies to you and your family at this time . Chuck and I seemed to have grown closer after graduation via our long distance phone calls . He was so proud of his knowledge of the area in which we live in here in Florida . He will surely be missed by all and you are all in our thoughts and prayers at this time . Chuck I am hoping you and the man upstairs are relaxing and smoking a fat Cuban torpedo while sipping on some 25 year old single malt whiskey , RIP my friend .

When my son, Steve, called to tell me of Charlie’s passing it “knocked the wind out of me !” I have many good and loving memories of a neighbor boy, friend, former Kindergarten pupil (named Chuckie), and an adopted son growing up. To me “Teaching was polishing Jewels for Eternity!” One of my “Jewels” has gone on to a Better Place. Looking at his picture I realize he “matured” but he will always be “Chuckie” to me but Charlie to others.

To Charlie…
My ‘Book of Life’ that I have been writing for 53 plus years has many of chapters and paragraphs containing the Arnold name.
From being great friends basically from day one of our lives from the Emerald/Main St neighborhood all the way through High School and into our young adult life,we could certainly been considered two peas in a pod.
It actually got to the point of our friendship that I thought that I was blessed with 2 set of parents,mine and yours.Talk about having security!!
And from us hunting to fishing,to hot cars to motorcycles,man did we have it going on.Those days of riding our sleds,I’m surprised trouble did not find us more often.But it always seemed to be a safe haven when we were all together.Fond memories and folklore story telling at it’s best.
But then,in walks adulthood.My profession has me relocating to Fremont,you and Connie start a family,new chapters and paragraphs to write about from both of our perspectives.
Those chapters about you and me sort of distance themselves over the last few years,not on purpose…but that’s just how life works.
We have so many irons in the fire,it’s just tough to tend to them all.And that is certainly understandable!
Maybe God should of gave us 48 hours in a day instead of the 24,that way we all could have accomplished more.
So, anyways….I’ll continue writing my book of life.And in future chapters and paragraph I am quite sure that the Arnold family will be mentioned on a regular basis. It’s only right that should happen.
53 years of being friends kind of goes a long way. I know for that the short time you have left us,the world seems to be a little ‘odd’ in it’s own way.
I just want to say:
“Charlie….even though our friendship has been long distance of late,your still a brother of mine,and I will cherish that for the rest of my days.” Full Throttle my friend !!! Stortsie

Lenna,Connie and little Chuck.
I cannot express how sad it is to hear the news of Chuck’s passing yesterday. If there is anything I can do from afar, you know that I will most certainly do whatever I can. I love you all and know Mary and I are with you in spirit. He was a good man and always treated me very well each and every time I saw him. I am so sorry that you will carry on without his presence physically, but he will never take his eyes off of you. The last time we spoke was last year, when he called and left a message to call him back! It was one of those random calls just to catch up and laugh as much as possible! We did just that!! At the end of the call, he thanked me for calling him back. I was the one that was thrilled to reconnect! We moved to the southwest 5 years ago and it’s always difficult to have time to chat when both are available. Rest In Peace Bro and I will catch up again on the other side! God Bless!
