Default Chally Erb flies free

Challyís spirit left his body as he slept in the early morning hours of Wednesday April 3rd. He continued to live his life to the fullest despite ALS wrecking his body bit by bit.

This forum and all of you were so important to him. He talked about this community of friends every day.

He was larger than life. We will miss him every day.

Love to all from his wife Beth, daughters Lipara Winfield and Deva Wagner and their husbands Chris and Todd . Also his beloved grandchildren Cameron Grace, Madi Rae, Ryan Charles and Ben Charles.

Oh my, my heart plunged to my stomach when I saw this. Fly free, Chally. No longer will you suffer or be trapped in a body that does not move. Beth, Chally was a humorous, bright light to this forum . Hugs to you and your family. R.I.P., Chally.

My sincerest condolences to this tragic loss Beth and all the family.

The outpourings on his fb have had me in tears and laughter for days. What a man! I have watched hours of his video over again and marvelled afresh at the wonder that was Chally.

Please check your junk emails too in case you have been missing things I've sent you this week.

Much love to you all in this time xxx

It's so strange to mourn a "random" stranger from the internet. But here it is. I will miss Chally's humor and craziness. Wish I could have met him in real life.

Much love, Chally. The tears rolling down my face are for the joy you offered us on so regular a basis. You were indeed a "Champion"! My best to your family. I hope they are able to find the happiness that you most wanted for them, every day that you lived... and beyond. Fly free, good sir... FLY...
