Charlie died at his home in Wilton, Conn., Dec. 10, 2002, after a long illness.

He was born in NYC, which his father, George B. Agnew, represented as a New York state senator. Charlie came to Princeton from Haverford School in Haverford, Pa. He roomed alone in freshman year, with Doug Fairchild sophomore year, and with nine other classmates junior and senior years, five of whom survive: Norm Carter, Bill Coors, Bill Galey, Hank Gardiner, and John Hardy. He was a member of Cap and Gown Club.

Charlie served as a lieutenant in the Army in the South Pacific during WWII. Thereafter, he owned Pressure Molded Plastics in Bridgeport, Conn. He was a founder of Wilton Presbyterian Church and was a trustee of the Harvey School in Katonah, N.Y., and of Nursing and Home Care of Wilton.

Charlie's wife, Jane, died in 1997. His brother, George '32, died in Jan. 2003. Charlie is survived by a sister, Madelaine A. Dykema, brother David '48, five sons, and 12 grandchildren. The class extends its sympathy.
