Celebrating the life of Charles Earnest Owen
Thank you for signing Charles Earnest Owen's Guestbook
Charlie was the greatest neighbor and friend we could have asked for when we moved into our house over 20 years ago. He was always there to offer help when we needed, we never even had to ask most of the time. He was our neighborhood watch for many year and that always made us feel good to know he was watching out for us and our house. He will be missed greatly. Prayers for Mary and his entire family to find comfort and peace. You'll be greatly missed Charlie.

It is so sad losing a former classmate. Charles always had a great sense of humor. We were friends and neighbors. To his family, please accept my sincere sympathy for you in your sorrow. R.I.P. Charlie.
