I just spoke with Charles' wife Karen and she informed me that Charles passed away after a lengthy stay in the hospital. His kidneys were shutting down, his lungs were full of fluid and he had an infection that the MDs couldn't cure.

The MDs did the best that they could for him, but Karen said that God must have had other plans for Charles.

Services will be this Saturday, but the Obituary will not be published until this Friday in the Washington Post. Since the WP requires a subscription to read the obituaries, I have signed-up for an account and will check them daily until I find his notice. I will then share any info that's included.

Obviously Karen was a bit distraught and it was hard for her talking about these past few weeks, so I wasn't able to get a whole lot of info other than what she was already sharing with me.

She had lots of family, friends and co-workers helping her financially with the costs of the hospital hotel room and said she only ended up paying for one night herself.

She says she hasn't checked Charles' e-mail accounts yet, but will do that next week after everything settles down a bit. She was so worried that she wouldn't be able to tell his TMF Friends what happened, but was so relieved when I called today knowing that his friends would finally know.

Please, pass along this info to any boards you regularly read where Charles was also a poster.

*doofus me*

I was upset when I spoke with Karen and forgot to ask for her address and the funeral home info.

I will be collecting cards to forward to her. I do not feel comfortable sharing her address with Fools I may not know, but if y'all e-mail me Offline, I will give you my address and will forward anything sent here to her.

The funeral home info is:

Henry S. Washington & Sons Co., Inc.
4925 Nannie Helen Burroughs Ave Ne
Washington DC 20019
(202) 398-6700

www.usafuneralhomesonline.com/funeralhomesbystate/washingtondcfuneralhomes/washingtondcfuneraldirectors.html

I just called them to ask if they have a web site, the lady said yes, but she doesn't know the URL. I'll have to call back again tomorrow to get that info.

I'm sorry to here this, but thank you for passing it along. Charles always had something thoughtful to add to the discussion on this board. I'm sure that I'm far from the only one who will miss his contributions.

A true gentleman has passed.

As I recall, he would refer to me as Katinga-san, the only time my African nom de plume got mixed up with a Japanese article. But that showed his sense of humor, knowing that I was bilingually African, but not genetically so.

May God say, "Well done." But not BBQ-wise.

I couldn't agree more. Charles was always helpful to me whenever I had to make some tough choices. His wise counsel and good friendship helped me see some things as they were, no matter how difficult that was. He even helped me to overlook some really bad manners on the part of some people on another board(remaining nameless forevermore)and continue to lurk there and occasionally post. I shall miss him. I consider his loss on a par with that of the colonel, and that is high praise indeed for those of you who knew the colonel.

A true spiritual gentleman has gone before us.

Man, Charles was sure excited when he got that big new smoker. He sure was passionate about his barbecue ... not that you wouldn't be a worthy recipient, sano, but I'm thinkin' Charles' church might find good use for that big smoker ... church suppers, picnics & whatnot??

And then ChezJohn has to come in and bring us back down to Earth and act all responsible again. I bet Charles was laughing at us fighting over his goodies though. ;-)

Seriously though, you're right that the church would benefit a lot more than any of us would.

Yep. They'll be churning up up some holy smoke on Charles' BBQ.

Now that is a very cool legacy!

Charles was a kind man with a fine sense of humor.
I will always remember that he wisely and diplomatically responded to my very first post on the Fool a number of years ago.


(my long post)
".........Comments are welcomed but not too much technical and financial criticism please."
--------------------------------

"Okay, not too much. Having a feel-good experience with a company is not a sufficient reason to buy stock in it."
Charles

Thank you Charles for that simple but extremely sound advice.
We will miss you.
May you rest in peace!

I knew you boys would agree. Now, it's not our decision to make, but if his wife *does* decide to give the smoker to their church ... I'll put up the first $20 to have a nice ingraved bronze plaque made, to be attached to the smoker ... so his memory will be acknowledged whenever it's used. Anyone else wanna chip in?

Also, I am going to *nominate* Charles for a Smoky Angel Award. You guys can read about it here: http://www.hawgeyesbbq.com/smokyangel.html

Bill, if you would email me Charles' address, I'll get the award & pin sent out today. Thanks.

OK, I just called them again and they said they do not have a web site. *sigh*

BTW, after looking through the Washington Post again today, I see that they do provide a guestbook with their obituary listings. But again, as I found out yesterday, an account is needed to access these listings.

When I see his entry (supposedly Friday), I will link to it here.

I glanced at his last 10 posts. His last was mid January.

A few down from that was a message in which he mentioned that he will turn 52 this April.

He was taken way too early.

I just spoke with Karen and informed her about the Smoky Angel Award. She was in tears as I was telling her how much Charles is loved by his TMF Friends and all the outpouring of love on all these boards.

I also told her that we'd like to make an offer to have a bronze plaque mounted on his smoker so that if she passes it along to a family member, friend, their church, or whomever, that he'll always be remembered every time the smoker is put into use. Obviously she hasn't thought about the smoker with everything else she's dealing with right now, but she was pleased to know we wanted to do something special for Charles. She'll let me know after she has time to think about this what she wants done.

I am also going to start collecting posts and adding them to his page...

www.bbqfools.com/crobinso.php

...for Karen to start reading now. Since she won't be checking his e-mail for a while, I want her to be able to see just how much Charles is loved and will be missed.

Bill, you're the best! Charles also hung out at Gwen's Pub. Hope this helps!

Bill, I know that Charles lurked at the Christian fools board and likely posted some in times past.

Hey bundori,

Bill, I know that Charles lurked at the Christian fools board and likely posted some in times past.

Thanks! I was notified about that board and am collecting posts from their thread, but I still appreciate y'all telling me about it!

So far I've been informed of, and am collecting posts from, these 11 boards (...12 including ours, obviously...): 77's Foolish House of Pigskin, All things Sci-Fi, Baby Boomers, Buying and Maintaining a Car, Christian Fools, Computer & Video Gamers, Current Events, Gwen's Pub, Humor and Urban Legends, Major League Baseball, and Skunk(s).

But, since I've been getting so many e-mails these past two days, I have not had the time to "Search TMF" for any more related posts. So, I'm still asking for links to posts about Charles to be sent to me.

Again, thanks!

I knew you boys would agree. Now, it's not our decision to make, but if his wife *does* decide to give the smoker to their church ... I'll put up the first $20 to have a nice ingraved bronze plaque made, to be attached to the smoker ... so his memory will be acknowledged whenever it's used. Anyone else wanna chip in?

Hey Chez,

I'm in for $25.00. But like you said, it's up to Karen. What ever she want's is fine wif' me.

So, a nice ingraved bronze plaque made, to be attached to the smoker ... what is is gonna' say?

I have some suggestions: (I don't mind if you do the work-smithing thang, or change it entirely):

Hope you enjoy the food prepared on this Smoker. Charles did. And he would want your stomachs full, and your Spirit fuller.

Fill your "tummies", then fill your "soul"!

After 40 yrs. in the desert, this stuff tastes "really good"!

I'll leave it at that.

Let me know,

ez3 - Kevin

OK, the Washington Post has added Charles' obituary and there is a Remembrance Book to sign.

www.bbqfools.com/crobinso.php

However, in order to both "see" the obituary and "sign" the Remembrance Book, a free WP account is needed.

Please pass the word along to all of the boards where Fools have been discussing Charles' passing.

Thanks!

Bill, thanks my friend. Just went there and posted. Seemed so little to offer someone like Charles. I think I am going to have a big bowl of my BBQ chili that I just made last night in honor of my friend. He would have appreciated that (grin).
