DAMN!! Literally the first person I ever spoke to, that knew British cars, when I started fixing up my first Spitfire (at age 15). I called to place an order, and could not answer enough questions for the guy on the other side of the phone to figure out what I needed - he handed the handset to Charles, and we talked for at least 30 minutes about everything I was doing, and what I was going to need. Left an impression 30+ years later that I will never forget.

He will absolutely be missed! I pray for TRF as well.

Charles was my brother-in-law. There is a viewing tomorrow (Friday) between 2 and 7 at the Coventry Inn in Indiana. Bring your cars if you can make it. I wish I could be there but I have to be out of town. I'm going to miss him. Give him a big send off!

I have always believed that The Roadster Factory was a parts source that genuinely sought to make our hobby better with improved quality parts; as such it raised the bar for their competition. Charles truly helped to provide all of us with a better LBC experience. I pray that he may rest in peace, and for the consolation of his family. God Bless you all.
