Been remembering Charlie all day since I read the news this morning.

Godspeed, Charlie.

Wow, I did not know him but had a few conversations on this Stovebolt forum with him.
Nothing but pleasurable talk.

Charlie (Cletis) had been battling throat cancer for quite some time. It had been in remission for a couple of years but returned around Thanksgiving last year. Charlie chose not to do anymore Chemo. He was given 6 months. Always the fighter he proved the Drs wrong by a couple of months. Charlie did not want his situation to take away from the exchange of information on Stovebolt.com so he asked the few that knew to keep it confidential. Charlie was a wealth of information about our favorite trucks and shared willingly. Charlie was charged with moderating the General Truck Forum and did so with gusto. He diligently tried to make us all comply with the sites rules.
Please take time to say a prayer for his wife and best friend June.
RIP Cletis 🙏🏻

For those wishing to leave a message for the family follow KCMongos link in the Greasy Spoon or the first link posted by joker above.

Charlie/Cletis was a good man and will be remembered fondly by those who had the luck/pleasure to meet him.

RIP, Charlie

Had the pleasure of meeting Cletis and June a couple years in El Reno. We spent part of the time watching some races together. He was a really good guy and offered many helpful suggestions on working on my projects. He will be missed.
Thoughts and prayers his way and to June and family too.
