My deepest sympathies to Derek and the rest of the family. I have nothing but fond memories of Charles, Barbara, Derek and Missy as a kid growing up. The Covenah family became such dear friends with my Dad and Mom (Billy and Hilda Holland) and my brother, Tommy Holland. Love Always!! ❤️❤️

I worked Charles in my early years. He was a great teacher and friend who made everything enjoyable. Stayed in contact . Visiting the Covenah’s was always a pleasure: story telling,pool fun, great holiday dinners, etc! Remember him teaching my boys how to trap squirrels in his backyard using a laundry basket tied to a string. Charlie fought it hard. May his family find peace that he is now celebrating with God.
