He was a good neighbor and friend and enjoyed associating with people. He enjoyed his home and took much pride in keeping it neat and attractive. He was clever in designing and making articles for neighbors as well as for himself. After visiting Charley one felt that his life had been enriched.
He Is Just Away
"I cannot say, and I shall not say,
That he is dead, He is just away;
With a cheery smile and a wave of his hand,
He has wandered into an unknown land;
And he left us dreaming how very fair,
It needs must be since he lingers there;
And you, oh you, who the wildest yearn,
For the old time step and the glad return;
Think of him faring on as dear,
In the love of there and the love of here;
Think of him still as the same, I say,
He is not dead, he is just away."
Services were held at the Stoklasa Funeral Home March 5, 1971 at 2 o'clock with the Rev. Noel T. Adams officiating. Burial was in the Bohemian Cemetery southwest of Cainsville.
