To Neil,Pam,and the whole Baker Family. Sorry for your loss, and the family is in our prayers. Uncle Charles was a man with a great set of core values to live by. Those being in that he lived his Faith every day, A loving Husband and Father to a great Family, Respect for his Friends with care and kindness, Fortitude to keep going through the toughest times in life, and finally paying it Forward to his community and country. It's men like Uncle Charles that made his generation the greatest of all time. In closing, I am pretty sure that when he gets to Heaven, God will put Uncle Charles to work on projects pertaining to clean water, acid rain, and climate change. And finally ask him to tell a humorous story to.
