The Anthony Horbal family wants all to know that Charlie was the best neighbor and friend that our cousin, John Horbal could have had. We always enjoyed when Charlie came along with John to visit us at our home. Charlie stayed in continuous contact with us as John aged - both while John was living independently and after, when John moved on to assisted living. Charlie and Sonia watched closely over his home. We will always appreciate his friendship and help for John, and his wonderful smile!

Charlie was a gentleman man in every way. He was loving and caring and compassionate. He walked close to God and he lived his faith.
In his career, his talent as a service manager and technician was respected by the automotive companies, his employers and his customers.
His humor entertained us all especially his birthday calls.
Charlie set an example for his family and friends and will always be remembered.
Sending our spiritual hugs. May God surround you with His love and His peace
