Chuck Chamberlin Memorial – The Terrace Long Beach Ca. – Listen to the speakers here
This recording is a memorial service for the much-loved, early Alcoholics Anonymous member, Chuck Chamberlain. Chuck died on December 14th, 1984 in Laguna Beach, California at the age of 82. This recording was made within the two weeks after his death. The chairman of this meeting is well-known AA speaker, Johnny Harris. Johnny introduces about seven or eight different speakers who take their turns at the podium eulogizing Chuck. The speakers include Chuck’s wife , Elsa, his son Bill Chamberlain, Sybil Corwin, Cecil Corrigal, and Clancy Imislund. There are a lot of heart-felt memories of Chuck C shared by these speakers on this recording. Several times, various speakers hint at the fact that the final speaker is definitely the best. The final speaker ends up being Chuck C himself; a short recording of a Chuck AA talk is played and provides a very emotional ending to this memorial.
