I have hunted with Charlie for 50+ years. We met at UNL in Accounting class and both decided that was not for us. We did not live very far apart in Lincoln and it was easy to get together for hunting. I was having trouble hitting with my shotgun and Charlie helped me become a much better shooter. Charlie told about going to school in Western and taking his shotgun along to hunt on the way home. That's when there was game to hunt. On one of his last hunts here at the farm he shot a double, one in front and wheeled around and shot one behind. He was a great shot up to the end. he will be remembered and missed greatly. I know that I will.
