Charles Albert SMITHER My husband Charles Albert Smither died November 25, 2008. I lost my best friend, and the love of my later years. I will forever cherish his memory, his love of music, his writings, and his great care for me! I am looking forward to seeing my husband again in the resurrection if Jehovah wills. John 5:25 Charles was a loving father, grandfather, and brother!! To many he was a loyal friend and co-worker at King County Metro. He is dearly loved and remembered by all!!

I recall being told by Coach Wooten to get the ball into Chuck's hands.  He had a pure shot from anywhere on the court and helped make us a pretty competitive team.  I never knew him after high school, but it sounds like he turned out to be a fine man.

This was written by Chuck Smithers and posted on the MSN web site that had been created in 2004 for the 40th reunion.

Retired from King County Metro in 2001. Served in Viet Nam 1966-1967. 100% Disabled since 2002. Played Basketball with Jerry Childs, John Reuland, Doug Sanford and others under Boots  Wooten in our Senior year.  Married with 5 kids all raised. My wife Gitta is from East Germany although she's been in the States most of her adult life. Many of you may not remember me since I was a transfer from Sealth High and spent only one year at Mt Rainier. I live in West Seattle with my wife, Dog and two Cats. Dispite my limitations I'm still loving life! It's great to see how successful all my classmates have been, and great to be in touch.

I remember the twinkle in Mr. Wooten's eye's when he first met Chuck. He was fairly beaming with delight at the prospect of a succesful basket ball team in the Winter. Who can forget watching the games with Chuck leading the way and Doug, John, Mike and Jim rounding out the way. It's wonderful to know Chuck had such a good life. He was always so unassuming and such a gentleman. RIP
