Charlie, known as “Roy” by his family and friends, was a “full of life” man, who was grateful for everything in life. He always had a smile on his face, and a story to tell. His family dates back over 100 years to the Torrington area, and he was so happy when they moved back here to “be back home.”
And now he shall have eternal rest “back home” where he felt he belonged.
