I went through and put together as many photos as I could find. I am also giving copies of all of them to my dear friends at Tapout.
I would have to say that i’ve known Mask a little over two years.. He’s always been an enthusiastic and passionate person. He loved what he did, he loved everything he was a part of. And he, Punkass, and Scrape have been a part of so much.
I can’t tell you how many times, I invited Mask and Scrape out to party. they were always the ones to turn in early. Punkass was my roll dog on more than one occasion. But I have an experience I’d like to share with everyone. It’s pretty personal because everyone’s always wanting to know about my financial existance.
I got to Tampa for UFC in early February. I was going through some really rough personal issues at the time. As I was leaving the weigh ins, I ran into Mask and Scrape being picked up in a limo and they gave me a ride back to the hotel. They started inquiring about how I made it to all the shows and I told them I paid for it, shared rooms when I could and basically try to do photoshoots and sell advertising. I said it’s tough, but I love what i’m doing so it’s worth it. As I got out of the car at the hotel, mask shook my hand and said, go get yourself something nice.
They drove off and I looked in my hand and there was a $100 bill sitting there. I was blown away! A few days later, they called me up to try to schedule a photo shoot. I wish to god that we had been able to get a shoot done.. I’m crying just thinking about it.
There are very few people in this industry that have contributed as much as Mask, Punkass and Scrape have. I’m very happy to have called Charles my friend.
You will be sorely missed, Charles Lewis. You have left behind a legacy that will never be forgotten.
