The Mt. Pleasant Mellow Mushroom is reeling from the news that their general manager Kurt Charland died of a severe heart attack at 12:45 a.m. on Thursday morning. The restaurant was closed all day yesterday in his honor.

He was 46 years old. He is survived by his wife, Dee Charland, a son who is a freshman in high school and a daughter who is a senior in high school.

His friends and family have set up the “Kurt Charland Memorial Fund.” Anyone wishing to make a donation can go to any Wachovia and reference the foundation or send checks to:
