Charles “Charlie” G. Cran
November 27, 1940 ~ November 1, 2017 (age 76)
From Charlie’s daughter Valerie,
“Charlie was a bold Lyme warrior, and dealt with the agony and brain fog with a kind smile and helpful attitude for family, friends, and those who simply weren’t friends ‘yet’. While dementia and cancer were listed ‘official’ causes of death, both were caused by his 30 + year fight against Lyme disease and its coinfections. God bless his soul.”
