Salutations – Lamp-Lite Theatre has lost a longtime friend, patron, benefactor, musician and entertainer.
Yesterday our dear friend, Charles Gardner passed away. For years, back in the day, Charles toured different parts of the world with ...Ab Abernethy, Stanley Alexander, Tom Nall as the, “East Texas String Ensemble of Nacogdoches”. After retiring from SFA, Charles kept his hand in at, “Old Time Fiddle Contest” throughout the country. At the Theatre, he would have been seen most often, down in the Pit, strumming his stand-up bass fiddle. He will be sorely missed.
A memorial service to honor the life of Charles will be at the Lamp-Lite Theatre, 2:00 pm, Saturday, August 17th.
