And his very best friend, Harley, the house dog who brought more happiness and joy to Charlie’s life than the rest of us will ever know. Charlie was a free-spirited man who owned little more than his hearty chuckle. Early in life, Charlie learned Latin as part of his dream of being a pharmacist. He was a talented finished carpenter and mason, building one of a kind, custom creations for friends throughout the years. In his free time, he enjoyed gardening as well as attending carnivals, derby’s and traveling to see different airshows. But in his own words “My favorite thing to do is – relaxing” Donations can be made in Charlie’s name to SPCA of Tompkins county or Hospicare and Palliative Care Services o Ithaca. A private ceremony will be held at a later date.
