6 years has passed...life moves on, people get married, go on vacation, buy groceries....seems so unfair. Wish I could better understand the reasons you had to leave us. Such a hard day!!!

Hey Dad.... happy birthday bud. Wish you were here man. Havin beers and whiskeys.... I cant even have one for you today because Im up working at a dry camp... I know you'll forgive me, but it still sucks that I cant just call you and gargle a drink with you. (Dad and I gargled drinks so we knew the other was drinking lol. Kinda silly but it was one of our things) Got my first moose this year Dad.... miss the call I woulda made to you. It really sucks. So much stuff just doesn't matter as much as it used to when u were here Dad. I miss you terribly buddy. Would trade my soul for one more day with u. I love you Dad

This is the 4th Fathers day with out you. I am really struggling with it today dad. There is no meaning in the world that can explain to me why you are gone. We shoukd have had so many more years to celebrate you. My heart is aching so much today. "They" say it vets easier....but when is that? And who are "they" to proclaim this. Still waiting for that day...i miss you more then words can say daddy and i k ow your looking down on us as you do each day. I just so badly wish you were here. HAPPY FATHERS DAY dad....you are forever missed....

When I was a little girl I always said that I was going to marry Charlie. He will always have a special place in my heart.

Today is such hard day dad. Every time I think of you my eyes well up with tears. I know they say it will get better but I am not sure when that will be? 3 years should seem so long yet to me it feels like yesterday. I still see it all unfold in front of me. I Love you so much and wish you were still here daddy.

Been thinking about you a lot dad. I still think sometimes if I just pick up the phone I will find you on the other end. After 2 years I still find it unreal that I will NEVER be able to talk to you ever again. I have gone through some things lately that I would have like to have you around for. I got cancer too but was lucky enough to have survived.i wonder sometimes why me and not you?
Posted by Melissa Bradley on March 27, 2013
I miss you dad. Been going through some things that I wish you were here to help me through. Still not a day passes that you are not in my mind. So many things I want to say... Will this feeling ever go away? Will I ever be able to think about you and smile or laugh remembering something funny!! Or will the thought of you always bring tears to my eyes? I know your watching over us. ❤❤
Posted by Paul Bradley on March 14, 2013
Been thinking about u lots lately Dad....your never far from my thoughts. I miss you as much today as the day u left us. Would do anything to have u back man. My heart fucking breaks every time I want to call you, or talk to u, or just watch the leafs over the phone with you like we used to sometimes....... Love u forever.... Miss you ALWAYS.....

So very hard to believe its been 2 years today since we lost you dad. I still had so much to tell you and we had so much to make up for. My heart is still broken and I wish more then anything that you were still here and that we could go back and do things differently! I love you so much and will miss you forever!!

One of a kind, a man's man and larger than life. He "did it his way". Chuck was a great guy and a great cousin.....I couldn't have asked for more. He came from one of the best families I know.....proud to have known him. Your loss is my loss.
Posted by Marg Baker on January 19, 2013
My brother, my friend!  Missing you so much Charlie.  Today is your anniversary and it never gets easier.  Your loss has left a huge hole in my heart and the hearts of all who called you husband,dad,son, brother uncle, cousin and friend! R.i.P big guy.....love your sis!

I am starting this memorial page in honor of my dad. Being he was not burried in a cemetery and there is no head stone to mark his life I needed a place to go to remember and reflect him. I hope his friends and family will choose to visit and share

Always an adventure

Shared by Dan Bradley on January 19, 2016

Anybody who knew Charlie would also know that the word "boredom" was not in his vocabulary.
So , I thought maybe I'd share some fond memories.

There was a day when he got a new compound bow for hunting. He called me and I came right out there to check it out and also brought my bow as well.
 We spent some time practicing and as usuall he was tuned right in and placing shots like a pro.
 He handed his bow over to me and said "giver er a try".
It was handing a dog a bone ... I drew back and let that arrow fly !
Well...I missed that target by about 5 feet and the arrow went halfway through the shed wall . I missed it so far off , Charlie thought I did it on purpose .Thunder 'n lightening paled in comparison to what he had to say about it and there was abit of running involved but he forgave me wether he believed me or not.

I've noticed a couple of photos which , of course has a story to tell.

He's posed in one photo with 2 turkey.
 Here's what went down... 
We went into a bush that we frequented and knew quite well .
After a short time , I let out a call and right away gobbles blasted out and fairly close. I called again , this time the gobbles where coming towards us hard . Charlie sat down where he was , I was about 20yd from him and could see 5 or 6 jakes coming up fast on Charlies hard right.
Taking a lefthanded aim with that old Remington shotgun , he let it roar.
All I could see after that was smoke...
 "Did you get him ? " , I asked.
" I think I got 2" he replied
"Whatdoya mean ya think ? "
2 birds , one shot , offhanded,,,he knew exactly what was going down..  

The photo  with him fishing in the boat.  
That was taken at the Darcy McKeough floodway, just off the St.Clair river, on a really nice day.
We fished for a short time with nothing biting and just like that it , was time to go.
I barely had time to reel in my line and he was about to do a quick 360deg turnabout when ..Bang! Whack!
What the "H" was that ?
We didnt see anything and figured it was a piece of wood that was floating nearby , no apparent damage, so we push forward into the river.
Sitting at the bow , I noticed a rope dangling...oh oh...it was the anchor rope..and nothing on the end . It was prop cut when we turned to leave . 
Well here comes the thunder 'n lightening again , cause apparently it was all my fault . When I told him that he was the captain of this ship and he did not order the lifting of the anchor ...
I'll let you all use your imagination what was said...and this time I had nowhere to run !
We continued on our way, to a spur off the St.Clair called the Snye river .
We were having a blast , full throttle , doing figure 8's and just hotdogging about  then "Snap! . The steering till broke clean off the motor !
The look on his face..oh , the look on his face !
There we where ,drifting downriver..no motor...no anchor.
He grabbed the oars and began pulling , using his frustation as fuel , with absolutley no avail. The current was too strong . He made way for the shoreline ( which was made up of 12 foot weeds about a 100 yd thick ) and stuck the oars down into the muck to hold us there and wait for a passing boat for help.
I pulled out my fishing pole..thought what the heck , might just as well
"You are not fishing..."
"huh ? how come ?"
"because I'm "p>d off..your not fishing ! "
     All I was allowed to do was sit there . 
Fine, after all he is the captain of this ship...
So , the best thing I figured what to do was toss him a beer ..that helped alot and I was still in no postion for a fast footed escape. 
We eventually got a tow , got back to the launch where finally he began to chuckle..then laugh outloud.
People nearby were watching ..we could care less.
What a day..
Then there was the time fishing out near Kettle Point...but I'll save that for another time.
Miss ya buddie.
