Memorial Service


Memorial Ride


Greetings Fellow Bikers,

I just got off the phone with Joan Virdell regarding gifts in memory of Chuck. Joan has established a trust fund for their grandchildren's education and if anyone desires to make a donation to the fund in memory of Chuck, checks can be sent to Joan Virdell  c/o The Chuck Virdell Memorial Educational Fund - 210 Highland Drive, Port Ludlow, Wash.  98365.

In addition, monies can also be given to the CMA  AMBASSADORS CHAPTER - RUN FOR THE SON memory of Chuck. Please contact President Mark Austin for details - [360] 297-7337.

Thank you....and bless you!

Chaplain Denny


I just got a call from one of my MTA members about a memorial ride for Chuck Virdell (CMA Silverdale chapter). He died 5 AM yesterday morning in an accident with a logging truck at the west end of the Hood Canal bridge.

The ride will be leaving the Silverdale Harley shop at 12:45 on Saturday.
