    I hadn’t seen Charlie since 1991. I was a Chem. Engr. graduate from Akron U. and just started working for a division of Lord Corp. in Aurora in 1989. Charlie was one of the first Engineers I worked with there. I learned a great deal from him, laughed a lot with him, and had a great deal of respect for him. I recently learned that he was a Sales Engineer with a company we’ve done work with accidently by way of a bulk e-mailing. I gave him a call when I recognized his name and we struck up a conversation after nearly thirty years! I regret that we didn’t get to see each other again in person, but I am thankful we could reconnect. My condolences to his friends and family.
