 I have been searching for our friend Chuck Tesh for many years.  He was a graduate of Coronado High class of 1966.  We played in bands together starting in 1963-1966.  He was the Bass player for the Vibrant's and the Rogues.  So many incredible memories of Chuck and our adventures on Coronado Island,  He will be written about in the book I am writing.

I just learned this morning that my friend and fellow Band Mate passed away in 2018. Chuck Tesh was a 1966 Graduate of Coronado high and one of the well-known characters of Coronado in the 60s. His exploits and adventures will be remembered by all who knew him.
