Tribute for: Col. Charles W. Fellows, Jr.  (deceased)
Tribute left by: Karen Moody (Houston, TX)
Another officer described my father as the finest man he had ever met. My father embodied the essence of an Air Force officer - honorable, trustworthy, self-effacing, always put his family first. He had a poem that hung on his wall as long as I can remember that reminded him how important a man's name was and he encouraged us to remember that we should always act so as to never dishonor our name. I am proud to say that his 5 sons and daughters are carrying on this tradition. Love to you, Dad.
