It is my sad task to write of the passing of Charles Crowley last evening. Recently, I wrote about
him and his incredible dedication and work in researching and sharing the history
of Taunton. He and I had been emailing back and forth, he wrote that he liked what I wrote.
Coming from Charles that meant a great deal to me.
Here he is sharing his tales of those buried in Taunton Cemeteries, a font
of history. I remind everyone that Charles never charged for his presentations.
Charles was keeper of the truth about the history of Taunton.
Big and small, facts of its history were a source of fascination for him,
His joy was to share with others.
It is so good to know that all of the Olde Time Taunton television
programs are there on You Tube in perpetuity. That is his lasting gift to us.
Rest in peace, Charles, you will not be forgotten.
This blogger will remain
in gratitude that such a man lived and gave to the city he loved and to all of us.
