According to young Charlie, they had been there about two weeks, Charlie had a cold/flu like symptoms, went to the doctors, and was advised he had a cold. On Saturday, he started having shortness of breath. 911 was called, and upon their arrival, Charlie became unresponsive and attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful. Charlie leaves his wife Donna and his son Charlie and his wife from Kingston, MA. A memorial service will be held at the Trinity Church in Rockland. Donations can go to an outward bound program that will be listed in his obituary, which will be published in the Patriot Ledger some time this week.
For those of you that don't know (young Charlie) his son, he was part of our youth rowing program for many years and sailed on the HMS Bounty for several years as well.
