Charlie was the franchise player in our St Clements weekly hockey scrum. I will miss all his joking around and his wonderful laugh. Charlie was very easy to like and I never saw him mistreat anyone. Well maybe a foe once in a while. He always expressed concern for others and told great stories over the odd brew. I will miss him a lot. Thoughts are with his family and close friends. RIP Charlie.
