I first met Charlie working for D-M-E in darlington Pa in 1974. I was living in Ellwood City at the time. I was into hunting and fishing just like Charlie. I met his Dad and brother Lee through hunting. In 1985 I bought a camp near Clear Creek state park. Charlie , Bill and Carl Greenawalt would come up and hunt almost every weekend. I remember one snowy day with at least 2 foot of snow walking back to camp and I pulled a leg muscle. Charlie got in front of me to plow the snow so that I could get back to camp and not hurt it anymore. He was a hard hunter a good worker and a dedicated Family Man. It was an honor and pleasure knowing this Man. RIP Charlie you will truly be missed.
