I worked with Charles at South Salt Lake and then on several of his
multi-jurisdictional task forces. He is an amazing individual and was a law
enforcement genius. My condolences to his family. His contributions made law
enforcement better and created a foundation for many of the forensic
advancements we enjoy today. And the stories of Charles are things of legend.
He will be missed but I will continue to tell my stories of Charles around
campfires with the boys. He will live on....
Fascinating man who lived a fascinating life of dedicated service. It could be
easy to imagine a book or a movie created, based on his life.
It sounds as if he is someone more officers and investigators needs to see as a
example. This is a fascinating story.
I first met Charles many years ago in our teens and he was truly a unique
character his whole life. We are the same age. He was fun and extremely
talented and devoted to the things he did. I enjoyed seeing his hoop dancing on
several occasions. He was generous with his time if it involved service to
others or teaching of his talents. Chuck will be greatly missed by all who knew
him and the police department lost a great servant when he retired. RIP my good
