Charles Hartz was a great friend and a great musician. I can’t imagine a life that doesn’t have him in it.I will see you on the other side, my brother.
Chuck and I grew up across the street from each other. He was a talented musician and loved playing his guitar. He had a great sense of humor and would get a twinkle in his eye when telling stories. He was an avid Beatles fan. We reconnected last year and I m so glad we did. I’m shocked and saddened to learn of his passing. Rest in peace my friend. 🙏 My condolences to Kayla.
