RIP Bub. " A life lived right is truly a life lived".
Uncle Chuck, I loved our talks usually when you were sitting under a tree while visiting. You always spoke about God and I can see how much you truly followed Him and let Him lead you. I am so comforted that I will see you in Heaven one day and that you are now walking through those streets spreading your joy.
I've known Charles for a long time. He will be missed. Prayers go out to the family.
So sorry for your loss. I didn't know Charles all that well but anytime i would see him in town he was always respectful and kind. He will be missed greatly by all in our town. ðŸ™
So sorry to get this news .havenâ€™t seen Bub in years but remember him when I was at Leslie growing up. Prayers for all the family
I will definitely miss seeing Charles. I considered him a friend. Sometimes he would ride with me when I stopped and asked, but sometimes he was very focused and did not want to be interrupted. We talked about the Bible quiet a bit, and his knowledge of it impressed me to no end. I thank God for Charles' friendship. He was the most disciplined man I have ever met. There is no doubt he is resting in the arms of Jesus. ðŸ’œ
With sympathy. Jim McBride
Bub was a wonderful man that always smiled. I asked him one time why he smiled and his response was â€œone day youâ€™ll knowâ€. I guess his faith gave him strength and allowed him to be who he wanted to be. RIP my nephew.
We were sorry to hear of Bub's passing, may gods grace and love be with him.
Bub was a very good friend to all who knew him. He will truly be missed in the Leslie area and he was a fine Christian man.
I will certainly miss Charles. I knew him from Leslie. The first time I really got to know him was at Pizza Hut in Marshall. He always had his Bible with him. Through the years I would talk to him now and again and then one day he came in McDonaldâ€™s for a job interview, which I gave him. We hired him and I got to know Charles pretty good. I got to train him when he started. He caught on very quick. He said he preferred to be called Nils but I always called him Charles. He was always very respectful, punctual and a very hard worker. Always willing to help do what needed to be done. I will miss you dear Charles but I know you are in Heaven now walking those streets. Prayers and comfort to his family and friends.
What an amazing person, and a wonderful man of God. Uncle Chuck was protective yet gentle, in tune with the world around him, and loved in such a pure way. To know him was to know the love of God. I will dearly miss him. Our loss is heavenâ€™s gain. Until we meet againâ€¦
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.Uncle Chuck was one of my favorite people in the world. So gentle and protective, one with the world around him and the word of God. Until we meet againâ€¦
Praying for comfort during this difficult time. He was a good worker when I worked with him at McDonald's. I would see him walking to work Rain or shine.
My sincerest condolences to the Henrikson family. I didnâ€™t know Bub that well but Iâ€™ve always heard he was a really good person. Rest in peace, cousin. I know youâ€™re in a better place.
I am going to miss Charles or as he had a few of us around McDonald's call him, Chuck. He was an oddball but he made work all the more interesting and fun. I am going to miss him dearly. Especially calling him Chuckaroo. I'm sorry I didn't get to say goodbye to you on our last shift together, but you're headed off to your home now Chuck, you'll be missed dearly.
I will miss Charles. I worked with him for almost 2 years. While we had our moments, ðŸ˜Š we always respected each other. He was one of the few who always helped you when needed. I miss the teasing we did. Work life is just a little dimmer now.
I was so sorry to hear about Bub.He will be missed by many around this area.He always had a smile and time to chat with everyone.May he walk the streets of gold now and have daily talks with the Lord whom he firmly believed in.Rest in peace my friend.
I love you cuz â¤ï¸ save a spot close to you for me...I will miss you â™¾ï¸ forever.
My prayers for his family and friends. His presence will certainly be missed.

Doug always thought a lot of Bub. He walked his own path but those in and around leslie knew him to be gentle and kind. What better legacy to be known by?
Charles Family & Friend, We don't tell our family, friends or neighbors enough about how we feel about them till it's to late. You were one of a kind great person true Child of God. A wonderful neighbor & friend a fixture on South Mountain. Charles never complained about a bad day. Sometime his knee's would hurt & it was hard for him to walk. He would say they will get better.Charles you are missed now and always. May the wings that are placed on you take the pressure off your knees forever, fare-well old friend.Richard O.
