Many of you already know that Charley passed away the day before Thanksgiving from Acute Myeloid Leukemia and have sent condolences and flowers for which I thank you.
I wanted you all to know that there will be a memorial service at Grace Lutheran Church – 4427 Overland Ave., Culver City, CA 90230 on Saturday, December 17 at 11:00 am in which some of you are involved.
Most of his ashes will be scattered at sea, but at the Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition next June some will be placed in the California State University Long Beach rocket his Experimental Sounding Rocket Association students are building and Charley’s ashes will be scattered in the atmosphere when the parachute is deployed after the launch. We hope you will be able to join us and help us with the countdown 5-4-3-2-1 – to Lift Off…. a we did at the Culver City City Council meeting on November 28 when you adjournd in Charley’s memory.
If you are not able to attend and you have a memory of Charley to share, please email it to me at [email protected] and we will include it in a memory collection. I hope to see you there.
