Charles Roberts Obituary

While I know he was the brunt of many jokes, you could never deny his passion for our shared hobby. My prayers go out to his family & friends.

Happy beeps, buddy! Happy beeps!
Didn't know of him but sad news. May he rest in peace.

That is a shame... I agree that many didn't seem to necessarily appreciate Charles' contributions to the community but he was passionate. Had I known, I certainly would have headed over to Enchante to pay respects and share a few stories.

Thank you for informing us of Charles Roberts passing. When I first investigated wet shaving last Spring it was his videos than I happened to come across first and watch. I did indeed catch his enthusiasm for wet shaving. Even though I went to other wet shaving sites to learn the art I still remember one thing he advocated - never use a blade more than twice - not bad advice, though I usually use three times.
I agree , whilst I never got to try his products he was a force of nature when talking about them and shaving in general. I always found him an interesting character and it is sad news to hear of his passing at what I assume was a relatively young age.

I spent a very pleasant hour or so with Charles at Enchante in March. He was absolutely charming, and interesting. I'm sorry he was apparently the brunt of jokes. He didn't deserve it. My thoughts are with his family and friends. He was a truly great guy, which I could clearly see after ten minutes.
