It is with awful regret and sorrow that I am passing on this sad news. Charles Stock passed away peacefully in his sleep last night. He will be sorely missed by those who knew him and by the thousands of hearts around the world he touched with his writings . Charles will never be forgotten. He has taken his place among the legends in maritime history. R.I.P.
When I have gathered my thoughts I will be able to say a little more but for now please pass on this very sad news.
