Remembering the great laughter and memories that we shared as we navigated through high school-- I always appreciated and valued our friendship. It was a pleasure to have known you and to have spent many days with you, my friend.

Charlie was quite the character in high school. If he couldn’t make you laugh, you didn’t even have a funny bone in your body. After accepting Jesus as his Lord and Savior, Charlie lived his life as a devout Christian. I spoke with him several times in the last month of his life and there is no doubt where he is spending eternity. R.I.P. Charlie and comfort to his family and friends.

Condolences to the family. Served with Charlie 70-71. Great guy. Luckily reconnected around 2014 and attended a couple of reunions with him. He will be missed by many.

If you didn't meet Charlie Williams while he lived, you missed a great moment in life. Charlie was a "live wire" that made an impact on everyone he knew. I doubt he met a stranger since his outgoing personality made him a favorite to be around. He will be missed. Our sympathies to his family on his passing. Be assured that God shall wipe away all tears. Dave and Joan Turner
