  1. It was Charlie Westerfield who died early, 1970ish, not Steve. His funeral was at the Catholic Church near the Domino/Imperial.

    1. John ans Steve Westerfield were brotbers. Charlie was not a Westerfield. Steve Westerfield died early on and as far as we can tell, John is still hangin in tnere. Charlie’s last name is somewhere in here. It comes now and again when I think about him from those times.
