"Charlie", as he was known by his family and friends, is survived by his adoring and devoted nieces, Carol E. Levy and Louise D. Levy, and his nephew, Steven N. Levy. He was a loving great-uncle to his seven grand nieces and nephews, Chloe, Camryn, Chace, Cassidy, Carly, David, and Bradley, who were his pride and joy.

Despite our age differences Charlie was one of my best friends . We spent countless hours together trying to figure out the crazy game of golf , first at Baldock/Lincoln Hills then at Green Oaks CC . In all those years of being together I can’t ever remember him being anything , but a gentleman who never lost his cool no matter where that dumb ball would go ! No one , maybe except my mother , ever lived and died with how I played in my tournaments . His buddies Jack ,Gill and Marvin now have their 4th . He was a true friend and will be missed .

I met Uncle Charlie when I was 5 years old. Smiling and kind were my first impressions. I'm sorry that my birthday buddy has passed away. Cheers every April 6th Uncle Charlie.
