To the family of Chalie, We are so sorry to hear of Chalie's passing. We were fortunate to meet some of his children and grandchildren who he spoke so highly. We will miss him, we loved his stories, but he cheated at shuffleboard....(he had to - nobody could beat him!). May he rest in peace and God Bless You All. Barbara and Ward, AL Post 507

I have so many fond memories of Uncle Charlie. First and foremost he was good at everything and highly intelligent. He would visit all of us in San Diego and always with his side kick Richard and sometimes Freddy. I always looked forward to seeing him and who was in tow. The year before Sept 11 I flew to New York for work and took a train down to visit Charlie. He picked me up at the train station and I stayed the weekend. Marissa was a baby. We did a half day fishing trip.....I was 6 months pregnant and was waving the rest of the night. That was 22 years ago. We all loved how Charlie would tease our mom she never got his good jokes haha. He will be soarly missed by the Durkin herd in San Diego! 😢 we love all you cousins in Philly and our hearts hurt with you❤️

All though much younger than Chalie I was fortunate enough to enjoy his company and partnered with him on a few occasions in shuffle board. I fear our partnership may have gotten him banned as he subbed for my regular partner. I will miss the stories for sure. God Bless!

I loved my Uncle Charlie. In San Diego we still use our R's. Charlie wad always the biggest hit when he came to town. He and my father would sit and pass the time and it always made my heart smile to see my dad with Charlie. I will always cherish the memories Charlie.
