charlieNovember 11, 1923 – June 16, 2009

Charlie Mariano died peacefully in his sleep this morning, June 16, 2009.
He had been in a hospital again in February, and he could no longer burden the stress of the medical treatment.
He spent his last days at the Mildred Scheel Hospiz in Cologne, Germany, accompanied by his wife Dorothée and two of his daughters, Cynthia and Zana.
The cremation will occur tomorrow and his ashes will be sent to Boston, where he will be entombed at the family grave.
