    We lost one of the best. He was one of the 2 Illinois Taxidermist Association members who started the first youth seminars at a state convention in the country. Together with Jack, Charlie Brown held the first ever youth seminar at an ITA convention. I don't know what year it was- I just know it was the first. He has now gone home to be with Our Lord. May God bless and receive you, Charlie, for all the lives you have touch and blessed. Rest in peace and welcome home. You will be missed!

    Charlie Brown, what a guy. Never missed an ITA convention. Competed right up till the end. Even when he could no longer drive, his wife would escort him. Sorry to hear of the lose of one of our favorite guys. You will be missed Charlie. Keep that hook wet up there in heaven dear friend.
