In Memoriam - Charles Dimino

Charlie - June 1953

 

I don't remember just how we met, but we became good friends outside of school. We had a nucleus of friends and Charlie's home seemed to be the focal point where our group would meet regardless of where we were going. His warmth and personality came from his mom and dad , who were gracious and charming whenever you stepped into their home. Many a Sunday I would be finishing dinner at home and the door bell would ring and who would be standing there but Charlie.  "Hey," he would say, "Mom and Dad want you to come down and have dinner with us."
     "I just finished dinner," I'd say. 
     "I don't care," he would say, and off we would go.
          One particular memory in school that impressed me was in the library.  We were talking for almost the whole period.  Charlie had a book in his hand and had read almost half the book during our BS session. That impressed me; I was a slow reader. 
          We were in the army at approximately the same time and were both stationed in Germany. He had picked up an old Mercedes coup (in pretty good condition) and used to drop by.  At that time I was stationed in Hanau and he was stationed only a few miles away.
         My regret is that I had lost contact with Charlie and you don't get a second chance in life. This was a tough lesson.
