Support for Charlie "Chuck" Morton

On Thursday, September 17, 2020, Charles Edward Morton, a Big Bear HotShot and Crew Boss, passed away fighting the El Dorado Fire in the San Bernardino National Forest.  The funds raised will be used to help pay for funeral costs and any other expenses to help support Charlie's family.

As we continue to mourn the loss of a fiancé, father figure, son, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend; we want to honor him by creating a foundation in his memory.  Charlie was a selfless man and he gave so much to his family, friends, and community.  

Charlie had big dreams and we would like to continue to fulfill those dreams for him.  I, Monica Tapia, Charlie's fiancé and his brother Allen Morton, will be using a portion of the proceeds to establish a foundation in Charlie's name. We thank everyone in advance for the love and support that we have seen and felt throughout this time.
