Mr. Zarcaro (as I knew him) was my favorite elementary teacher. I remember being so happy to learn at the end of 4th grade that I was having him again for 5th grade! His class offered a happy place for me. I so glad to read that he continued to spread his joy for life as he journeyed through life.

Over the years I have had the great pleasure of 'ramming the roads and rails' with Charlie. Charlie always looked forward to his next big adventure. It could be a trip, dinner, sporting event or singing with the choir or barbershop, Charlie always made the most of his time. I am happy to say that, in Charlie's life he had many more good times than bad ones. Even with Covid, Charlie only wanted to hear from his family (especially his parents, who I'm happy to say he is now catching up with), his many good friends and of course the next person he was seeing in the course of his day. 'I have no use for time' was Charlie's motto in retirement. From the moment he woke up until the moment he went to sleep (after prayers of course) Charlie made his days full. In the 1980's, 1990's and early 2000's Charlie flipped houses, before 'flipping' became popular. To say he was talented and resourceful was an understatement. There are many more great times Charlie shared with us all and his warmth, charm and humor will always be remembered.

I was saddened to learn of Charlie’s passing . I have known him for many years as a Thompsonville resident when his dad sold the best lemon ice! Years later, I had the privilege of working with Charlie in the Enfield Public School System . Regardless of life’s challenges for any of us, he would come in with that smile and say something positive. He took the time to show he cared. Charlie loved riddles and motivated so many students with his laughs and positive attitude. Heaven has acquired a fun- spirited positive man who will bring more sunshine to all the angels. Charlie - you were one of a kind- and you will be missed. God Bless
