Charlie was a highly respected investor and acted as our part-time economist for the past several years. He was a gifted writer and wrote our newsletter, The Financial Pages for 12 years. Charlie was a mentor to many of our employees and was always happy to discuss his views on the market.
Charlie graduated from Northeastern University with a BA in Finance in 1968. He was a member of the US Army Reserves during the Vietnam War, serving as a medic. He enjoyed a 50-year career in the investment business. Throughout his adult life, Charlie enjoyed tennis, golf, fishing and boating. He is survived by his two children, Jeffrey P.
