Condolences - Charles Leland Meyer

I worked with Charlie the summer of 1984 when we were writing Language Arts Curriculum. I was enormously pregnant. Charlie had a friendly habit of referring to members of our team as "big old (your name). The first time he called me "big old Robin" I stood up, folded my arms across my baby beach ball and asked him, "Is that the best you can do?" We stared at each other and then both burst into laughter. I never got to work with Charlie again, but I will always treasure that moment. Charlie was one of the good ones and my life was made better for having known him for that summer. My most heartfelt condolences to your family.

Sending love to Ms Judy; Chip; Dylan and the family. Charlie was the kindest principal of all 10 of my Knox principals. He was also a character! He was loved!

Dr. Meyers was an icon in the community but for our military family back in the mid to late 1980s and early '90s he was my now adult kids educator or principal. His intense care and concern for all the students he encountered was a key quality of life experience for them. Amazing, he knew every student by their first name in the Fort Knox School system that he supervised. We will sing to him, "The Parting Glass" in his honor and memory.

Your family has my sincere sympathy. Adrian & i always enjoyed talking with them. Charlie’s smile and his joy for life were delightful. He always had a story that could enliven any conversation. He will be missed!
