Charles was a kind and decent man who never ever failed to speak truth to power. He believed that personal ethics and honesty were essential elements of good character. He was one of the best read people I have ever known and he was always eager to tell you about an article he found "that might be of interest to you" or receive a book on Texas history you had saved for him. He was a strong Democrat and someone that was much admired by all of us who worked with him over the years.

I was only one of the people who learned the craft of journalism in large part from Charles Worth Ward. I was 23 years old when I met him. Charles, along with Carroll Copelin, Randy Knickerbocker, Dan Martin, Jim and Katricia Cochran, Dave Allred, Marshall Moore, George Smiley, Joe Brown, Martha Steimel ran a special school at Times Square that made us reporters, for the rest of our lives. After we lost track of the others, Charles remained the constant for many of us, as friend, mentor, colleague, co-conspirator, he was always there. He opened my eyes to a world he then showed me how to understand in a conversation that would last more than 50 years. He was one of a kind and any of us could tell you a thousand reasons why. I am grateful that he was in my life.

Thank you Charles for so much. You were a gentleman, a bon vivant, and a true friend. My heart won't be the same for quite a while.
