Members We Remember
This is a page is a memorial for members who have passed – may they live on through their work!
AL (never Al) was an energetic and beloved leader of CWC-Berkeley, personally associating with the Club’s motto, “Sail On,” as a yachtsman, whose Write Angles column “A View From the Helm” provided an inspiring and welcoming message to members every month, and he inaugurated this blog. He left Alameda to travel the country in his “Land Yacht,” chronicling his adventures in his blog, A Year on the Road… which took him many years down the road, to the greatest adventure of all.
Deborah Frisch ran our 5th Grade Writing Contest for many years, and will be missed. During her time with the club, she published A Mango for the Teacher: Running the Beach and Running a School in Cancún’s Early Days about her adventures teaching English in Mexico. Her blog is: Latinofile – ¿Qué Pasa? with author Déborah Frisch
“A Mango” is a delicious dish…a memoir of dreams, hopes and learning….” — Rene Colato Lainez
Ebony magazine recognized Charlie’s Five on the Black Hand Side as one of the ten best African-American films of all time. At the time of his death, Charlie was working on a historical fiction novel about Haiti.
