Yesterday I attended the standing room only Memorial Celebration for Charlie Camilleri. I met Charlie through Variety Club International, The Children’s Charity where both of us were proud members. Charlie did so much for the kids and Variety Village, even becoming Chief Barker. I learned so much about him I never knew like he played for the Toronto Argos and was their Grey Cup Champion quarter-back in 1946 & 47. He was a Promotion Manager at CBS Records back in the 60’s,70’s and 80’s. A true gentleman and family man. My daughter Patti, son in law Dave and I sat with friends marveling at his wonderful life full of great accomplishments. Friends & family were invited to the podium to share their special memories and pay tribute. His son Ron asked me to say a few words and I was very honored to speak.
Sincere Sympathy to his lovely wife Peggy, sons Ron & Rick and family.
