IN MEMORY . . .
In the wake of the horrible tragedies in our Nation on September 11, 2001 this web site is dedicated to honor the memory of all those who lost their lives in the attack on America, including American Airlines Flight 77 Captain Charles "Chic" Burlingame III.
"Chic," 51, was the brother of Eddie Frierson's dear friend, Brad Burlingame. He was a veteran pilot and former Navy officer. A graduate of Anaheim High School, he went on to the Naval Academy and flew for the Navy. He lived in Virginia and once worked in the Pentagon. But he retained a fondness for the home teams (his home teams in Los Angeles), the Angels and Lakers. Indeed, while preparing for his trip of September 11, he'd hoped that his wife, Sheri, would be able to accompany him to Los Angeles so they could attend a baseball game, but he couldn't get seats that were worth the trouble. He wanted to watch the Angels while celebrating his 52nd birthday, which was Wednesday, September 12, 2001. He was a beloved husband, father, son, brother and friend and he will be sorely missed. Burial took place at Arlington National Cemetery, where Burlingame's father, a Navy and Air Force veteran, is also buried.
