So very sorry to hear of Charlie's passing. I remember him well from the Greenwood School and playing hockey with my son Daniel. Charlie was always smiling and such a nice kid. So young! My sincere condolences to all of the family. Joyce Carter

Alicia, my heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and your family for the sudden loss of your son, brother and nephew. Charlie was a fine young man who showed the utmost respect to others. He always had a kind word or witty comment to say no matter what the the topic was at The Hill. His sudden passing will be sorely felt by his many close friends and associates as well. I sincerely hope the great memories and lasting images of this really great kid will help to heal your grief during this most difficult time. My thoughts and prayers go out to all who knew and loved him.

Charlie, this comes with a heavy heart hearing you're gone. We were just chatting about golf a few weeks ago at Bear Hill. Bernie and I were watching you come down the 9th hole and you sunk the putt, you were a great golfer and loved the sport. You leave us with a heavy heart, gone too soon. Our prayers and love to your family and friends closest to you and may God Bless. You'll never be forgotten.

My sincere and deepest condolences to the McKenney family. Charlie "Cheese" was an amazing person and I was glad to call him my friend. He touched the heart of so many people of all ages. My son Anthony started working at Bear Hill and Charlie would always stop and give him advice. My son came home from work his first day and said Dad "Cheese is awesome". It just showed the type of person he was and what he meant to the Bear Hill family. He was always there when you needed him and I'm going to miss you dearly Cheese. I love you brother and we will play our next round of golf with your Dad. God Bless, Mano
