  • Michael & Chris & the Singewald Family,

    There are no words that can express the loss of family member, especially an individual like Charlie. I have been very blessed to know Michael and his family most of my adult life and especially Charlie. I have great memories of times with Michael and his dad both helping out at Norwalk Linen and times spent at our lake house. I would often visit Michael at work and would run into Charlie and he would always have something outrageous and funny to say that would make me smile. Charlie you will be missed by everyone you touched. Our love and prayers the Maria, Lewis, Ashley & Abigail Gotch

  • Charlie,
    You left us too soon . . . We’re left with so many memories of our days at Norwalk High School. Then there were those fun days of 1963-1964 when we returned home after the service, Navy for me and Marine Corps for you. Friday nights at the “Sky View” in Darien, our vacation trip to San Juan in April, 1964, remembering you driving your mom’s little white Italian car every chance you got. I found pictures of you just yesterday as I leafed through an old family album. There you were, standing next to that sports car with the top down in my drive way. You went on to build the Norwalk Linen business with your brother Alan, and I went back to school. Our lives moved on.
    I’m sorry we didn’t get a chance to visit before you left. We’re going to miss you, Charlie.

  • Dear Michael and the Singewald Family,

    We are devestated to hear of the loss of Charlie, a dear friend here at the bank. Everyday he came in he would put a smile on our faces and make us laugh with his one-of-a-kind charisma and hilarious stories. Nobody could ever replace him, and he will be deeply missed. It will be hard not to keep “the oldies” (old hundreds) to the side for him going forward…he loved the old hundreds. We’ll miss you Charlie!! Our love and prayers are with you.
