Hello Chuck and Family: Brian Hagedorn here. I just saw in the Daily Freeman that your father has recently passed. I lived across the street from your dad for many years and we would talk on occasion and share many stories and laughs. He sure did love his Ford Escorts! My wife and I live down the road now on Tanglewood Court. If you and your family need any help (for example checking the house on a winter cold snap, etc.) I can do that. My phone number is 845-389-7589 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Your dad was a good man and he surely will be missed!
Sorry for your loss. Charlie was a man of few words but we shared many hellos over the last 22 years. He will surely be missed.
