I second John's suggestion. Click on the link provided by Joker, KCMongo or John. It will take you to Thompson's Funeral Home where you can leave a condolence message for the family to read. It only takes a couple of minutes and I'm sure it will be cherished by Charlie's family.

I'm really sorry to hear about Charlie's passing. First time I ever met him was at the Pate swap meet. I introduced myself as the guy on named "Spotbiltxo" and he chuckled and said it was good to finally put a face with the name. I believe it was the very next year that I saw him there again and he was using a device he held at his voice box to be able to be heard when he spoke. I knew immediately that he had throat cancer but never said anything to him about it. The last time I ever saw Charlie was at the 2016 Decatur swap meet. I had been looking for a three speed tranny to replace mine with, and he had one that he brought for me.

He gave me a lot of advice and answered a lot of questions about my old truck, and I will always be grateful. He gave lots and lots of his spare time to monitor forums on and I will always appreciate that about him. We will miss him here!

He was the first one I think I ever talked to on Stovebolts and he started helping me in the right direction with my Dads old 51 GMC , He was full of knowledge that we will miss,See ya up Younder one day, and my prayers are out to the family and friends. MIKE

When you read Charlie's obituary, make sure you watch the video. It tells a lot about Charlie's life. Also, back in March when Charlie made the decision not to take any more treatments, he offered me a lot of parts that he bought from a closed GMC dealership a few years ago. I told him that I am 73 years old and really have a lot more parts than I will ever use. If anyone on the board sells on eBay it would be some pretty good merchandise. I have the list in PDF form and can forward it. I did not post this while Charlie was still with us because he did not want sympathy while he was still alive. I had known Charlie for a long time and as per his wishes did not publish the fact that he knew the end was near.

Very sad to hear about Cletis. I'll always have fond memories of him playing his guitar at some of the after hours get together's we had at the Kansas City Reunions. RIP Charlie, and our deepest condolences to June and family.
