R.I.P. Charlie. He will be missed. I already miss him. Thanks for sharing this sad news Doc. I will enjoy the many fond memories I have of throwing with Charlie as well as just sitting around shooting the breeze with him. He was a truly pleasant and interesting human being. I'm happy I got to know him. The disc golf community is mourning one of their own today.

Charlie was not only an amazing story and great disc golfer, but he was a great man in the truest since of the word.  He was an inspiration to many and he willl be greatly missed in the disc golf community.

This is sad news.  My cousin is in chemo, and had talked with Charlie while they were in chemo.  He had indicated to me on Friday that Charlie he thuoght had turned the corner.  This news is utterly shocking, and was not anything that I had planned on receiving this week.

SHocked, and saddened.

Annie, please pass on to Charlie's family that we're all grieving with them.  A uniquely talented guy, good sport, and inspiration.  I remember the story of the autograph hounds at Des Moines Worlds...great guy. 

So long, friend!  :'(

Charlie inspired me to become a better person(on and off the course) with his ways and he will be greatly missed...  Is there a memorial fund for donations to the family?

Charlie was such an inspiration!  He putt better than a lot of us and he couldn't even see the basket!  Always glad to "see" you with a winning smile.  He was in great shape, I can't believe that he's gone. :'(  Can we have a memorial round in the near future?  Not a tourney so much as a friendly round, maybe a fund raiser for the family.  We should do it at night so that it is more like he played all the time!  What was his favorite local course?  We should do it there!  Let's celebrate his life!

Right now, I am planning on having a CTP on Sunday after the round, where people will have to throw "blinfolded".  I am looking for ctp prizes so if you have some that you want to give away, please let me know.

This should be a fun throw on the day to remember Charlie.  I am thinking of #7, or possibly just #5 short.......
