Who Was Charles Lacy?

Red Car Property regulars always ask me if I know who Charles Lacy was. In the canyon between Corralitas and Lake View lies a mystery memorial that's been there at least since 1990. There always seems to be an evolving collection of mementos and flowers. A wonderful flowering tree shaded the memorial for many years. Unfortunately, the tree fell victim to an overzealous chainsaw during brush clearance last spring.
