Storm loved volunteering and in Spearfish he got to feed the fish while roving the historic property!  Enjoy this fishy farewell from Storm.

  1. Deb, Tami and I are way out of town, wont be back til 14th. Otherwise, nothing would keep us from being there and celebrating the man and the immense respect he enjoyed. I don’t have any good stories to share except for the godawful horselaugh he bellowed when he found out Bob and I were unknowingly bidding against each other for goodies at his retirement auction. He just smiled a somewhat toothy grin and said , “Keep it up boys, I can use the money.” We did. He did. God bless us every one. Jim

    Sunny (Deb) our deepest condolences. We so enjoyed spending time with you all. We are blessed to have known Charlie. Ya know two strangers looking for a jeep ride and Charlie just took it in stride with a warm welcome along on a great adventure ride. You all made us feel like we have known each other more than just a few months. We are better for having you all in our life. We will miss him!??

    We are so sorry we can’t be there for the ceremony. Know that you are in our thoughts and hearts. We are still in disbelief. We feel so very lucky to have reconnected with Charlie and to get to know you. He was a kind soul and will be dearly missed.
    I am sending my love and wishing you strength through the memories of Charlie West??????
