    He will be missed in the tennis community. He was the player who showed up in dress shoes to play a match. He would reply: I'm here and start laughing. great memories . My prayers are with the family.

    My condolences to the family of Mr. Charles Muhammad. He was always a wonderful & kind man to me even when we had our little debates at work & I’d leave mad he would just laugh & it would be like nothing ever happened the next time we saw one another. Charles was my co-worker & friend for over ten years. I could talk to him about anything. I last saw him at Erlanger Hospital the day before his heart surgery & we said we were going to get together soon, but we never did. I am so sorry Charles. I am going to truly miss Mr. Charles Muhammad! They sure don’t make men like him anymore! Love Always ??????????????????????
