    I worked with Charlie for about 5 years and his positive attitude would always help us get through stressful times. He was very proud of his family and the recent home renovation projects he was involved with. I am thankful to have known him and I’ll miss him very much.

    Dear Lori, Chad, & John,

    I’m so sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. I worked with him at the Stoneridge plant. He helped me accomplish things I had trouble with at work and at home. He was always ready to help me out with a ride. It was a pleasure to have him as a friend.

    To the DeAngelis family,

    I’m sorry for your loss. I worked with Charlie at Stoneridge and like so many others, can honestly say, I’ve not worked with a more pleasant and friendly person. Even under stress Charlie maintained a calm demeanor and professionalism. He treated everyone with dignity and respect and was always willing to take the time to explain issues or just to chat. Truly a genuine and good human being. Your family is in my prayers.

    God Bless.

    Dear Lori, Chad and John,
    We are all so sad to hear of of Charlie’s passing. We were devastated when heard of his illness. Charlie and I shared so many hours coaching John and Aidan in youth baseball. He was an amazing coach, husband and father. He was true to himself and so proud of all of you. I envied his confidence and his pure love of life. We are sorry to have missed the services but will catch up with soon in Westwood. With love, Matt and Cynthia Fitzgibbon
