Charles E. Finch
Charles E. Finch died unexpectedly of a heart attack at his residence in University City on Wednesday, June 9th.  He was 73.  Charlie, as he was called by his friends, was the husband of Mary Ellen and father of Nathan and John.  He is remembered for his devotion to his family, friends, and former students, his generous support of a wide range of causes and organizations, and his firmness in standing up for what he believed was the right thing to do and say. 

Charlie was born on the family farm in Williams County Ohio in 1930.  He earned a bachelor's degree in history from Wabash College in Crawfordsville, IN in 1951 and a master of arts in teaching from Harvard University in 1955.  At that time he began a career as an educator that included teaching positions in Evanston, IL, University City High School, and Clayton High School and post-graduate work at Washington University.  In 1967 he was hired to teach history at Webster Groves High School where in 1977 he became one of the first coaches of high school girls track and cross country in the state of Missouri.  Several years later he was the driving force behind lobbying the Missouri State High School Athletic Association to approve holding statewide girls cross country and track and field meets.  He retired from teaching at Webster Groves in 1994.

Because of Charlie's involvement with high school girls track and cross country, he served as a volunteer officer of the Missouri Track and Cross Country Coaches Association for almost 25 years.  He served as their Executive Secretary-Treasurer for eight years and is a member of the Hall of Fame of both the National High School Athletic Coaches Association and the Hall of Fame of the Missouri Track and Cross Country Coaches Association.

In retirement, Charlie served as a volunteer assistant coach for the Wabash College cross country and track and field teams.  In the fall of 2000, he served a brief stint as the college's temporary cross-country coach while the regular coach was in Australia for the Olympics.  In addition to coaching for his alma mater, Charlie had served and was currently serving on the National Association of Wabash Men Board, he was active in the St. Louis Association of Wabash Men, and was a member of the college's Elihu W. Baldwin Circle.

Charlie, who joined the army in 1951 and was a Korean War veteran, also had an extensive 27-year military career ending with his service in the army reserves where he attained the rank of Colonel and served as the Commanding Officer of the 307th Civil Affairs Group and a Staff Officer of the 102nd USAR Command.  He is a member of the Fort Sill Artillery Officer's Candidate School Hall of Fame.
