A large void has been left in our hearts after hearing of the passing of our dear Charlie. He was the nicest man, a good natured and loving partner for my sister Joan. We will always have the memories of the wonderful world wide adventures we enjoyed with Charlie and Joan. Charlie was a gentle soul with a warm smile and a ready laugh. Our prayers and heartfelt condolences are offered to your immediate and extended families. We will miss you Charlie but you will be forever fondly remembered. Eileen and Bill McArthur
