Charles Ashok Lindberg died in the city of Los Angeles on May 6, 2015, at the morning following his 33rd birthday, of sarcoma cancer. He was born in Cottage Hospital, Santa Barbara, to Brian Lindberg and Mary Lindquist-Lindberg, who survive him, and passed the golden years of his childhood in the company of many friends in Santa Barbara. He moved to his mother’s family home in Creston when he was nine, attended Creston School and Atascadero High, then graduated from UC Santa Cruz. He was proud to have attained All-American recognition as a competitive swimmer. He was an outstanding nature photographer, and supporter of public lands; his love of Yosemite was unbounded. He had an abiding concern for the welfare of his fellow man, and he was generous in his judgment of them.
Shortly before dying, he kindly admonished us, “don’t feel bad…everyone dies”. It is in that spirit that there will be a gathering of his friends, from throughout his life, at the old Lindquist family ranch, 7440 O’donovan Rd., in Creston, Ca, on June 6, from 12-4, lunch served from 1-3 (805 458 9440). It will be a reunion celebrating our shared and abiding commitment to the family of man.
