Charlie Halsted was a good friend of mine. He was my boss when he came to work at the Department of Energy (DOE) in Germantown, Maryland. When the government offered a buyout in September 1994, Charlie and I took advantage of the opportunity to leave but that didn’t hinder our friendship. We continued to have lunch occasionally and talked by phone frequently. His death has upset set me. I miss you, Charlie. Love, Ruthie

I met Charlie many years ago - 1973 when I started work at SRP in Aiken SC. We carpooled for several years and spent some great times together as we lived in the same development (College Acres) in Aiken. He always was a guy you talk to about work related issues, provide advise on dealing with people and act as a sounding board for me. I will miss him greatly - RIP Charlie.

Charlie was a huge part of my life since before I could remember. My grandma and him were great friends and worked together at DOE up until their retirement. Once a month, he would take her out to lunch and I went with them from the time I was in a baby carrier all the way up to recent years. I loved listening to him talk and all of the stories that he had to tell. He always had advice and encouraging words to share. There wasn’t a sweeter man than Charlie. He never forgot about my birthday or the holidays, and always insisted that he had to send a card or a gift. I will miss sharing Mexican food and margaritas with him!

Hawk was much more than a close friend, he was a part of our family. The nights when he stayed with us were filled with laughter and stories. Too many times to count, I recall waking up to go to the bathroom, as a kid, and hearing my dad and Charlies laughing well into the evening. Hawk always cared, he always had a story to tell you, and he had a way of keeping you focused on the present when he was with you.

Along with my parents, Hawk taught me a love and respect of boating and the water. Something I hope I'm passing on to my kids.

We'll miss him dearly, and are so thankful he was in our lives.
