Family, friends remember fallen Stonington scallop fisherman Charles J. Lathrop

A memorial at the Stonington Town Dock built over the weekend paid tribute to Charles J. Lathrop, a Westerly man who died Thursday as a result of injuries suffered when he fell overboard last week while working on a commercial scallop boat. Surrounded with flowers, the memorial included a picture of the 50-year-old local fisherman who spent 35 years working on the water, docking in ports from Stonington to Hawaii. Next to the memorial, a sign read “Good men never leave us, they become legends we never forget.” photo’s  >click to read< 09:53
