While Charlie was busy getting an education here on this 3rd rock from the sun he developed a couple of aliases. Meema (Jeanne) liked to refer to him as Charlie Bear and Little Man. Peepa’s (Charles) pet name was Fresh Monster. But Aunt Anna’s favorite tag was Booger. As a matter of fact, when Dr. Peihl called him Booger and one of the nurses said she couldn’t call him that he replied “Why Not? That’s his name”.
Charlie was one of a kind. At the same time, he was getting an education here on earth, he tutored many others. One of his Dr’s by the name of Melanie Blackburn said that Charlie “taught me how to be a Dr”. He really challenged Dr.s Peihl, Camp, Peck, Mollie and others to sharpen and hone their skills. Dr. Gross lovingly called him the”20 question guy” because there was more than one time it took that many questions to get to the root cause. He also wasn’t about to leave out the tech’s, respiratory therapist’s and the nurses. He seemed to be very dedicated to the task at hand and taught many, if not all, things they never learned in college. Would that make him smarter than them? Just a thought. Oh, and by the way Fadia we hope your calf roping and knot tying skills don’t wane off due to lack of practice.
The staff at Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital cannot be thanked enough and was so instrumental in giving us 14 years of tremendous blessings and happiness with Charlie’s presence. He wasn’t selfish and touched many lives. We can’t thank them enough. This little guy and his little mustache will never be forgotten and will be missed by many.
Visitation will be at Thompson Funeral Home Saturday night November 3rd, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to Thompson Funeral Home to help out. There is also a GoFundMe page titled “In Memory of Charles Williams” that will also help. Should there be any excess of funds it will go to Happy Wheels Inc. which gives a free book or toy, every week, to take home, to hospitalized children.
