    My thoughts and prayers go to Charlie’s family. I have many fond memories of Charlie from the 70’s, when we all spent time together hunting, fishing, canoeing and generally hanging out. I am sad to hear that one of the younger Horton boys left us so soon. He may be gone, but he will not be forgotten.

  11. Sandy Fleming says:

    Greg and Cindy. and the entire Horton family, I want to extend my deepest and most sincere sympathy for the passing of Charlie. I worked with Charlie at Parker Pneumatics and Charlie was always a helpful person and he seemed to always care about doing right for his co-workers. We had many gatherings down at Jim’s tavern with many of our co-workers. Many that have passed away, but always having such a great time together. I know that friends and family are going to miss Charlie. My heart goes out to each and everyone of you.

  12. Dave Heathcote says:

    To Greg, Cindy and the entire Horton family, please know that I was saddened to learn of Charlie’s passing. He was considered by many to be very knowledgable and skilled in his trade, and I, for one, benefited from his example. He had a tremendous sense of humor and enjoyable to work with. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
