Charles Wade Coley died at the tender age of 23 from Leukemia. He had been on a hiking trip in Calif and when they came back from the trip he went to a doctor as he was so weak and did not know why. He was diagnosed with Acute Leukemia and only given a life expectancy of one year. He went through so much the next year and so many blood transfussions. He spent what time he had left with his wife, son Kirk and the rest of his family. He lived almost to the day of the year prediction. Chuck, we all miss you so very much. We miss the fishing trips, and the good times. Rest in peace dear step-son. Esther
