Such a brilliant artist and wonderful man. I worked at the Dennos when he had his exhibit which then traveled to the DIA. We honored him in 2019 with the Michigan Legacy Art Park Legacy Award, so well deserved. He leaves a legacy of art.

Sad news. Has been my neighbor for over 30 years. Wonderful man.
Always visit this amazing piece when we are at DIA … so sad to here of his passing
I love his work! I’m so very sorry we never met as I’m surely one of his biggest fans!
I had Charles Mcgee for Color theory at Eastern Michigan U many years ago. He was a great guy.
Had him as a teacher at EMU back in ’73. Been following his career ever since. He will be missed.
