I know because he told us all the time. He loved to tell stories of his life growing up, the roller rink in Fremont, and the ranch in Nevada. He loved riding down the road on the motorcycle with Mom and friends. Sharing adventures on many a back road and maybe catching a cattle drive. Dad was the first one to the card table and the last one to leave. Showed us what a good bluff, laughter, and fun was all about. In Loving Memory Of Charles A.
