Walter always said how grateful he was to Charley and so was I for all the help he had given us.
When Walter moved on to coach Salem High School, he took me with him. The Newburyport School Committee decided to move Charley into my position as the elementary school physical education instructor. At the time Charley decided to take a job in White Plains, N.Y. After a few years he came back to teach around here.
It was so sad visiting Charley at the nursing home. He couldn’t hear very well, so all I could do was give him some exercises to do with me. Charlie was a great physical education teacher as well as a good man. I’ll always be grateful to him.
