I grew up with the nephews and nieces of Charlie Ryan so I felt like he was my Uncle Charlie, too. He was a co-worker of my dad growing up, so they were all topics of conversation around our dinner table. It was a second family for me and I love them all to this day. I live out west now so I'm glad I got to visit him in New Jersey some years ago. He told me all about his USS New Jersey battleship museum project. Rest in peace, Uncle Charlie.

Charlie was a wonderful husband to my sister Gretchen who died in 2008. I have always been amazed by his undiminished memory of his life's history even in the final years. Charlie loved boats, from iceboats to battleships. It was fitting that this Navy vet died on July 4th. His devotion to God and Country was testimony to his faith and patriotism. I have been blessed by having known him. I want to offer my special thanks to his nephew Skip and to his special friend Tina who were helping him through the last few years. God bless and Godspeed to my brother-in-law Charlie. Pete

We had many delightful conversations at the restaurant we both went to for lunch (now Sides Grill in Long Branch). We originally met because of my battleship license plate, but became good friends. He will be greatly missed.
