Cletis seems to me one of those characters that is simply always on the forum. It will seem a little bare here for awhile.

RIP Cletis. I'll flash up that Texas lighter you sent me here in NS in your memory.

I am saddened to hear this news. Only knew Charlie/Cletis from the site. He did a great job of keeping us on our best forum behavior. Condolences to his family.

I just got back into the forum, after working on a truck bed bed for my son today. I got the half a cab, the rear fenders, the bed and the wheels from Charlie April 2017... that was the second time I went out to his place over the years. After he warmed back up to me during the visit, he was back to chatting away best he could with the breathing tube. We walked his whole place, he told me about everything he had left and I literally bought all I could, paying way more then I would on a normal day to help out. Charlie, great guy, staunch moderator, good friend. He told me that day he wouldnt see Christmas, driving home I decided I would have a custom lisence plate made for the bed when I was done with “Cletis” on it so every time someone asked what it was I could tell them of my friend Charlie. He will be missed.

I hate when people leave their brains at home. Seriously when did critical thinking and customer service go out the window? How about common sense and striving to go the extra mile? Idiots, surrounded by idiots it tell you.
