I grew up with Charlie.we lived in the same neighborhood.
Charlie ( Chale,as we Chicamos used to say in those days), did allot of boxing in those days. I guess we first met when we were both in the 4 the grade of school, ( Lowell). I kind of messed with Hank Sterling, Charlie's cousin, and Hanky wanted Charlieto beat me up. Instead we became long time friends.. I moved from Phoenix to Oakland CA.,and got settled there, I went to Korea, came home and moved to Venice CA.
In the earliy 50's I was attending college on the GI bill and became re-acquainted with Charlie and his brothers, Billy, and Alfred. We had a semi- brother relationship. We saw each other frequently, but due to my Schooiing and work, we eventually lost contact. But, I shall always remember those wonderful times we shared during the late 30s and 40's as we matured into adults. We al loved Charlie very much, there wasn't a thing he wouldn't do for us if we asked him. As I said before, we were like brothers. May God rest Charlie's soul, and Bless you and your familia.

John - Lawrence Piņa was my Grandfater's oldest brother. I never knew him or his immediate family. If there are any records I have that I can share with you I would be more than happy to. Mark Piņa.

Coco's memorial
Hi John, Please allow me to access his memorial so I can add his obituary. I will return management to you once I enter his information.

Thank you for setting up his memorial.

Hope to see you and Eloisa at the ROBLES reunion this Saturday.
