  1. Sorry to read of Charlie passing
    We were in the National Guard together and did out 6 months active together

  2. To the MacIsaac Family: We are so sorry for your loss of Charlie. He was our neighbor on Richardson St. for many years, and he was always a nice guy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. The McLaughlin Family….

  3. Condolences to the entire MacIsaac family. Your Dad was either my first or second-ever Little League coach. I think it was a tee ball team and we practiced at the Clapp School. The Mets maybe? The memories are faded now, but I remember your father was all about making sure we all played and had fun. I have coached soccer for the last several years and I take those lessons with me to this day. I doubt I have seen your father since those years, but I hope he had a wonderful life.
