  5. We are very sorry to hear of the sad loss of Charlie.
    Our family remembers Charlie’s hard work during the years, that he worked in concreting with dad and Uncle Angelo.
    Charlie kept us boys entertained with his abundant, funny stories and jokes, when working with dad in school holidays.
    We also pay tribute to Charlie for having the patience to explain the basics of concreting, as dad was often busy with other jobs.
    A Charlie story (unknown if true or not): Mum said to Charlie to sit down in the chair. Charlie said: I better not, because once I sat down and dad came along and told me, that if he caught me sitting down again, that he would sack me. So I never sat down again!
    Sincere condolences, prayers and kind thoughts to Faye, Chessy, Danielle and families from the Cavalieri family.

    Our deepest sympathy for your loss. Charlie was my confirmation sponsor ( my compare). I remember him as a warm generous man,
    always in good humour and giving me good advice. Some of the pranks he played on Dad when he was a young man are legendary in our family.
    Rest In Peace.

  26. Corrado
    Many memories of our friendship which began the first day you began school at St Brendans when your family came to Coragulac from Italy circa 1956. We shared the same desk that day and from then the bonds of friendship grew. It was always great to catch up from time to time and have a chat. You worked hard to look after your family and always a gentleman.
    My deepest sympathy to Faye, Chesse, Dani and families.
    After a life well lived ,rest peacefully Charlie

  36. From the first day we met, I will never forget, your welcoming smile, made me want to stay awhile. You made me feel at ease, and the coffee. “Yes please!” You had a quiet manner, but plenty of banter. With your family by your side, our friendship is tied. I felt like one of the pack, and always said “I’ll be back”. And now sadly you’re gone, with great memories to carry on. It’s time to say goodbye now. Rest In Peace Charlie. Chow. Deepest sympathy to Faye, Chessy, Danielle, Cesira and families. ❤️❤️❤️
