I am sorry to hear about Charles. I was a year ahead of him in pharmacy school. I will always remember him as being friendly and cordial with a welcoming smile.
Rest In Peace, Charles.
I'm broken hearted. But so full of joy that I knew Charles. I so enjoyed just listening to him! He always had a good story that would make you laugh and words of wisdom that made you think. He never hesitated, even a second, to help you if you needed it. With my children, there were several times he would leave his home to go by the drugstore to meet Milt or I for something we needed to make sure the kids would be ok...smh. We loved Charles, his kindness and grace, and will miss him. Love to you all. Prayers for peace and healing.
This may seem like a crazy thing, but I knew Charles only because he bought file cabinets from me during my 19+ years at Mega Office Furniture. I was struck the first time I met him by the fact that he was such a nice and sincere man, and I got that impression each time he came back in for another. In our country today, when so much is so divisive, we need more people like Charles that are simply good, honest, truly nice people. My condolences at your loss.
Judy, Allison and Austin— we were so saddened to hear of Charles’ death — it was a real shock. He was such a kind and nice man and I always enjoyed getting to talk to him at church and the drug store. He will be missed, not only by you all but by the community. Please know we are thinking of and praying for you all.
Very sorry to hear of his passing. With over 40 years as a deputy sheriff and now the sheriff of dinwiddie county for 10 years I can tell you Charles was a pillow of the community. If everyone lived their life like Charles we wouldn't need a sheriff's office. My prayers are with the family.
Charles was a wonderful person. We met in pharmacy school and I would see him at continuing education classes over the years. He was always the same...friendly with a ready smile. There was never any ice to break with him. Our last meeting was not long after he sold his store. Several of us had coffee after class and had a good time reminiscing about our days at MVC. Sending deepest and heartfelt sympathy to all of his family at this very sad time.
Charles was a good friend. A true and honorable gentleman. Always upbeat and cheerful. He will be greatly missed!
In my 42 years in office nursing, Charles Rainey and Tommy Lee from Walnut Hill Pharmacy were the epitome of wonderful pharmacists that I loved talking to daily. Charles’ love for his patients and his wonderful demeanor made each phone call we had , such a pleasure. I was so sad when Dinwiddie Drug closed and I know longer got to talk with Charles. But I so enjoy talking to his daughter, Austin, at Sutherland Pharmacy. I was so happy when I was watching Channel 12 and I heard Charles had won the St Jude’s raffle house. God rewards the good ones! So sad he is gone now but I know he is in heaven with God and is pain free and happy❤️
Charles was a good guy. Always interested in knowing about family. He always asked about my parents when we’d pass at Dinwiddie Food Lion. God rest his soul. He will be missed by so many. Greatest heartfelt condolences to your family.
We don't have any words to express how we grieve at your loss. Our earnest prayers and thoughts are always to help you through the days ahead. Charles, will be greatly missed as he was appreciated and loved. May your memories bring you comfort.
