Charlie was such a good friend and coworker. How I enjoyed working with him. We spent many, many hours bringing the Bangor Mall & property up to the “Roy Daigle Standard”! Whether it was filling holes, in the parking lot, with cold patch, rebuilding the hemlock fence, on the outer ring road or just basic maintenance, we always made the best of our time together. He was a “one of a kind” man, who would give the shirt off his back, if you needed it. He will be missed and most certainly never forgotten. Although, we didn’t realize it at the time, those were “the good ‘ole days”.
Briana and Chad, your Dad and Mom were a special part of the “Bangor Mall Family”. We were bl
...essed to have called them our friends. We will be praying for you, in the days ahead, knowing the loss that you are feeling.Read more
