>Dear Rudi:
>
>You may not remember me, but I was a Botany Dept. undergrad and graduated in
>1987.  I then started working at the USDA Biological Control of Weeds lab in
>Albany as a technician for Charley Turner.  Charley elected to transfer to
>the USDA Australian Biological Control Lab at Brisbane in Dec. 1995.
>
>I have some sad news about Charley.  He was diagnosed with liver and colon
>cancer in Jan. 1997.  He returned home immediately to Indiana, had colon
>surgery, then started chemotherapy for his liver.  Unfortunately, the cancer
>had progressed too far and did not respond to either of two drugs.  Charley
>died of liver failure on Tues. morning, April 15, at his home in Indianapolis.
>
>He is survived by his mother, wife Jacqueline and sons Matthew and Adam.  I
>don't have information yet on memorial services.  You may send a card to:
>        Jacqueline Johnson
>        9934 Wellcroft Lane
>        Indianapolis, IN  46236
>
>Please forward this information to Charley's former Botany colleagues at Cal
>and elsewhere.  Hopefully I will have more information about funeral
>arrangements later this week.  Thank you for your assistance in letting
>others know.

>Sincerely,
>Kathy
