    We are saddened to hear of Charlie’s passing. Reflecting back, we all can smile at many things. The late Saturday evening dinners, the debates about the Lions, the many nicknames he gave us all, the great snow bowl after parties, the drinking of arf and arf’s, the many summer get-togethers, his great sense of humor, his advice on life, his pride in his kids, and the list goes on and on. You touch many lives Chowie.

    We are saddened to hear of Charlie’s passing. I remember my last visit with him this past spring when I shared with him my Lion’s 2nd Vice District Governor patch – he was so happy and we had a great talk. He was so proud to be a Lion and we are all so very proud to look up to him as a Past District Governor for the UP! Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    I am sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. We worked together for a few years,My thoughts and prayers to the family.

    Dear Lundmark Family, I wish God’s blessings on you at this time. Charlie was such a part of the neighborhood. He would keep track of all the neighborhood kids while he was working in his garden. It seems like our neighborhood is now very different from when we would hear one another’s parents calling us home for dinner and we would have to call the touch football game off while we ate. God’s peace.
