I’m very sorry to hear of the passing of Charlie. When I was at Michigan Bell in rookie in the PBX department, I was lucky to have Charlie ride with me for a week due to his broken hand and to learn from him. I remember Charlie telling me and everyone that asked how I was doing that “I was his right hand and boy is it slow”! Charlie was well like and respected by all that met him, especially me. Please accept my prayers and condolences.
