I was on the 1974 Fairfax High School team that Buster & his Bell teammates beat. We had a solid year but had never all year played anyone as skilled as Buster. After the game he was as gracious as you could be. Just found out about his passing & my heart goes out to all his family, friends and teammates. Why is it that the people we need the most are taken too early.

Played with Buster at the U of Utah. When I returned from Europe in 2000, I heard about this tragedy, and was shocked. Buster and i were very close teammates. God bless you brother, rest in paradise.

I rember Buster when he was in Necastle and he was a great friend to my family. I love watching him play and learnt a great deal about life and basektball from him.

Charles was truly a gentle giant and was taken way before his time. He was a great person and father with a great big problem. His love never faded for his look-alike daughter, Taylor. He just could not put his daughter, or wife before his vice. It's good to know that I know a angel by name. You will always be my husband and my love. I miss you every day... I will see you later... Charli

However I did find this and it appears all this happened in 2000.

This has been something I have looked into for some time. I knew that he was the victim of a crossfire but I looked through and I could not find any official obituary.

After being drafted with the Houston Rockets, Buster went on to play ball in Italy,Mexico, the Philipines,and Newcastle, Australia where he was very popular and everyone knew his name. He came back to the United States in 1988 and worked in various group homes until he was killed in a drive across from his home in South Central LA. This was truley an American tragedy. His murderer has never been caught.
