I was a friend and neighbor of Charles since 2010. I recall many afternoons sitting in his wine shop, and greeting his entourage. Our chance meetings in downtown Summit were also memorable, and always fun. Charles will be greatly missed, but I am proud to count him among my friends. Semper Fi!
He made it a pleasure to visit Wine Imports, a great conversation starter who always made it about you and not him. He loved introducing his customers to each other and talking about guys we knew who went to St. Benedicts Prep and St. Bonaventure.
A life well lead with friendliness and without malice. RIP
