Charlie

It is with a heavy heart that I make this announcement to all MOC Members that knew Charlie Benton. Charlie passed away today and has gone to meet his Maker. He fought a courageous five year battle with cancer. As soon as I receive more information, I will update this post. RIP Brother Charlie!

Update: There will be a 3 hour Viewing beginning at 12 Noon to 3 PM with a Memorial Service to celebrate the life of Charlie will follow the visitation time on Friday the 25th. Charlie's obituary can be found at Rosenberg Chapel site. Charlie's obituary will also be in the Sturgis Journal starting tomorrow. Donations are to go to Hospice of Southwest Michigan. For anyone wanting the address to send cards please PM me and I will send you the address.

Thanks for informing us Rondo. Charlie was a really great guy with a ton of RV knowledge. He fought a hell of a fight and will suffer no more. Our prayers go out to Judy.

Charlie will truly be missed. When you spoke with him he was always upbeat. His smile was infectious. You could not help but smile when you were in his presence. He fought a good battle but he is now in a better place. Our prayers go out to Judy and their family. Rest in peace Charlie.
