2 THE TEKE q SUMMER 2015 The Offices of the Grand Chapter is sad to announce the passing of Past Grand Officer and true Teke icon, Charles Trabold. Charlie, a dedicated Teke who epitomized the Fraternity for Life, was a staple at Conclaves, RLCs and anything related to his home chapter, Kappa- Kappa at Monmouth University. Here are the thoughts of Tekes who were close with Charlie. Frater Charlie was the definition of TKE being the Fraternity for Life. He invested numerous hours and dollars into building Better Men for a Better World. He will be extremely missed and all of us must work to make TKE stronger, honoring Frater Charlie's legacy." Donald E. Aldrich, Chief Executive Officer There were few Tekes I know who really ate, breathed and lived TKE 24/7. From his involvement in supporting leadership programs, to establishment of the Order of the Shield to his constant display of brotherhood on a personal level, Charlie was the embodiment of Love, Charity and Esteem. His support of the TEF is legendary. As a member of the Grand Council, he freely shared his vision of the Fraternity." Brian C. M. Barrett, PGO It was December 1, 1964. TKB President Charlie Trabold called a special meeting of the brotherhood to discuss an affiliation with TKE. We were addressed by TKE Regional Director Duwe Woerpel. After that, ... Charlie started the ball rolling to be a colony of TKE. Some brothers objected but Charlie, in a nice way, told them to comply or join another fraternity. Some brothers wanted a Greek letter in our name. Finally, only one brother continued to object and voted NO. Charlie called for a roll call vote knowing this brother wasn't active because he was delinquent for non-payment of dues. The vote was unanimous ... . Charlie got his way again. In March 1966, our local fraternity became the Kappa-Kappa chapter and the first national social fraternity at Monmouth College. This was one of Charlie's proudest moments." Mickey "Kraut" Yaeger, Kappa-Kappa #4 His wisdom, experience, and commitment to this Fraternity will be remembered by many. One of the best compliments I heard about Charlie was by Harry Maurice, a Pike and Greek Advisor at Stockton College, when he said, 'Charlie bleeds cherry and gray.' Yes he did. We are all infinitely better for knowing him." Albert J. Scala, LLT I will try to continue Charlie's passion, commitment and caring, but I know I won't be able to truly fill the void ... no one could. Thank you, Charlie Trabold. Thank you for caring." Ian M. Hughes, Chairman, BOA, Kappa-Kappa Chapter Charlie was a perfectionist and expected the most of everyone around him. He kept us all on our toes but was always there whenever we needed some extra support. Charlie's generosity and passion for the Fraternity is irreplaceable."
