A Facebook post said that Charles Windley died.
I couldn’t find anything else about it, or, any other announcements, so I don’t know if this is fact or not.

Confirmed on Facebook, Chuck Windley has passed away.

I never met Chuck, but I had some correspondence with him and quite a few publicity pieces and promo plans from him. 40+ years ago I was using his system to promote fund raisers in elementary schools. Very innovated Guy

Hi Jack!

When I was discharged from the Navy in Janhary, '55, I booked a "string" of elementary schools in Norfolk. Apparently, no one had done that for eons! I booked them on percentage, and did very well. The folowing year, Chuck, who was still a teenager , I think, followed me and did very well, also. I had headed back to Michigan, booking and playing schools on the way home. I went to college and then worked for the Boy Scouts for a few years, before breaking into the full time.

Chuck had continued, he did a season or two with Clyde Beatty/Cole Bros. Circus, and, then framed a small illusion show which he toured successfully, for years. You probably read the story of Chuck, Al Flosso, and Chang in my book.

Eventually he started a magic shop in Norfolk, which he ran for years. We were friends for about 65 years, and, I was shocked to read Bob Baxt's report of Chuck's passing on 16 December. He was my last link with Norfolk. I shall really miss him.

Charles Windley will have a broken wand ceremony in August, 2018 during the Abbott's Get Together. He asked me to be executor of his estate and I have purchased a plot for him in the Colon Graveyard not far from Tom Mullica's
