  16. Ray Murphy says:

    It is fitting that Charlie was President of Compass Riders. Charlie’s compass was always true. He was larger than life, a tough, strong and good man, and he knew what was important. I did not see him often but enjoyed every moment when I did. I will miss those moments.

    I am sorry to hear about your dad. I still remember him as a vibrant young man we called “Charlie Brown”.
