Yesterday the beer world gathered at the Cedar Court, and subsequently at the Huddersfield Crematorium to say their goodbyes to David Charlesworth.
The Cedar Court was a humanist service with recollections of Charlie from family and friends and followed by a short service at the Crem which was packed with those who had come across him through his 63 years. It was standing room only and showed in what high regard Charlie was held, with many local licencees, and plenty of tickers from far and wide attending. It was followed by a celebration of his life at Marsh Liberal Club.
A fitting end to the life of a special man, who many of us have been priviledged to have know as a beer enthusiast, jazz fan, and a tireless Camra worker. He will be missed.
