Charlie was always a people person. He loved gatherings, celebrations, and events. Never a dull moment for him. He was a super fan of all Chicago sports teams. He also loved the excitement of the casinos, colors and lights. Charlie was not only proud of his family, he was a very generous, caring man. He was always willing to reach out and help whoever he can.
