  1. To Mary and members of Chuck Scheirbeck’s family: We were so shocked and sorry to read of Chuck’s passing. He was such a sweet guy with an endearing, wonderful and fun personality! We hope that you and the rest of his family know how highly he was thought of in our dance world. Our condolences go out to all of you and please let us know when you’re going to have a memorial or Celebration of Life gathering in his honor. We will miss Chuck so very much; he was always such a bright light in our lives. Sincerely, Heather Armstrong & Arnold Aguilar

  2. I am searching for the family of “Charles R. Scheirbeck” who might have attended school in Rapid City in 1953. I recently purchased 75 old yearbooks and I have one that says “property of Charles R. Scheirbeck”. It looks well loved–lots of signatures of friends…I’d love to return it to the family if it could indeed be yours.
