It is with great sadness that we share the news that a long time member of the congregation of Albright United Methodist Church, Charlie Klemz, passed away on Thanksgiving. Charlie was the leader of the Boy Scout troop that started the annual Albright Thanksgiving Eve dinner and he was the driving force that kept the free dinner going for many years. Charlie was unable to make it over to First Church on Wednesday but he called several times and spoke with other members of the congregation on Thursday morning. He was delighted to hear that so many people participated in this years Thanksgiving Eve dinner.

One thought on “In Loving Memory: Charlie Klemz”
I totally found this by accident but this is so sad. I knew Charlie. I worked with him at Ritters– I haven’t seen him since 2005..
What was wrong with him? I know he had health problems and all.
This is is sad.
I can tell you first hand– no matter how tired Charlie was, he made sure his Thanksgiving traditon went on.. (Feeding the homeless)
