Charlie was the son of one of my best friends, who also flew a helicopter, his grandfather was a good friend of my dad, Anthony Russo, dob 1902. Charlie's dad, Charles J. Trojahn and I worked together for many years. Matt Rowley, a fellow pilot, I believe related to James Rowley in the mid-air over Brooklyn 7/22/1983, was also a great guy and a friend. My thoughts frequently dwell on all those mentioned above since I remember well the tradegies they endured. May Charley, James and Matt be remembered always by those who knew them.
