My heartfelt condolences for the Davenport Family. May Charlie’s soul rest in peace and never be forgotten. I remember Charlie as a kindhearted person, one who would always give a smile to a friend. To Sally Davenport Dean, I am here if you need to talk.
To Mary, Sally, Butch and family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you. I remember Chuck as a very giving man, always helping a friend, or stranger, in need. His family was the most important thing in his life and he adored his sisters, brother, nieces and nephews. Chuck always had a good joke to tell or something funny to say. When Mary and I used to pal around back in the day, he always made me feel like I was his sister, too. A very accepting, loving a giving man.
To the family,I am sad to hear the news. Chuck was a good, honest, hard-working man. He will be missed by many whom he came in touch with. He had a big heart and loved to make you laugh. I’ll miss his smiles and jokes but will be happy and safe in knowing he will be there waiting for us on the other side. Many hugs to you and your family. Love, Tracy & Arianna
