Charlie was loved by everyone in the community. He worked as a bartender at a local establishment called Grissini. He had worked there for over 20 years and had won over everyone in New Milford, Connecticut, where he and Velvet lived. But she realized that her life was meaningless without him.

Charlie was a devoted husband and an excellent employee. In fact, clients would call the restaurant to make sure he was working that night. If he wasn’t, they wouldn’t come. But he didn’t just work at the bar. He was a Jack of all Trades and lent a hand to whoever needed it. He would even come in on his days off to cover someone’s shift. But as a husband, he was awesome! “My Charlie loved me,” Velvet told ABC11. “He loved other people.” Velvet was a proud wife, but she didn’t realize how much her husband had touched the lives of everyone in the community.
