Chuck Strozier Passes Away

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of long time club member Chuck Strozier, who passed away on March 4th in Pahrump, NV, as a result of injuries sustained from a fall. Chuck served on the SCARS board and was well liked and respected by his fellow members.

In lieu of cards or flowers, we ask that you make a donation to the American Heart Association or the Parkinson's Disease Foundation. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his wife Mary and all those close to Mr. Strozier.
