  1. Charlie Boyaji welcomed me, a friend of his son Brian, into his house with a smile and a joke. He helped introduce me to Toad’s Place in New Haven and to the upper deck at Yankee Stadium. He was a true family man. He will be missed.

  2. Dear Family of Charlie, He was our wonderful mailman for about the last ten years, and I was so sorry to hear of his passing. He always took the time to ask about our family. He was very compassionate and kind. We were very lucky to have known him. He was more than our mail carrier, he was our friend.

  3. Debbie, Brian & Brendan: So sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. Too much time has passed since our last gathering and should offer much thought about moments cherished and lost. Sandie and I are out of state and will not be able to make the services. Please accept our sincere condolences and love.

  4. To The Boyaji Family: Time passes by so quickly and we are all on this Earth such a short time, but it is the memories left by our friends and family (who have passed) that stay forever. Our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to all of you.

  5. Very sorry to hear of Charles’s passing. As a friend of Brendan’s when I was younger, I didn’t know him too well but from what I do recall, he was a kind spirited man who always had something to smile about.

  6. Charlie did our route for years and was the BEST! He was very thoughtful and considerate and quickly became our friend. No matter when we had a package he would make the effort to walk it all around the house and deliver it to the back door so it would be safe. When he left our route, the entire neighborhood missed him terribly and we all agreed that there would never be another Charlie. It was a pleasure knowing such a great man. Our thoughts are with his family.

  7. Charlie was our mailman for years. He was a wonderful guy. I considered him a friend. We often spoke sharing stories of our kids, grandkids. He watched my kids grow. My favorite memory of him will be him walking the block, smile on his face, and my late daughter Rachel running up to him to collect the mail and give her favorite mailman a hug. He was a wonderful friend when Rachel died 6 years ago, coming to her funeral to .deliver. flowers. We spoke of it at Oakdale when we met. He was so proud of his family. May he rest in peace. Laurie Luedee and family

  8. Dear Debbie, Brian, Brendan, & Families, I was so sorry to learn that Charlie passed away. Though we haven’t been in touch for many years, he will always hold a special place in my heart, as do you, Debbie. I will keep him, and all of you, in my prayers, asking God to give you His comfort and peace. I share your sorrow. Love, Dorothy

  9. I am so sorry to hear about this a year later. Seems the family connections have fallen apart. Also Sorry to hear about your mom. We have so many great memories. Love Patti
