“Simply Believe” Memorial Service: Tomorrow in Garden Grove, CA

Charles Lewis Mask TapouT MMA BelieveCrystal Cathedral Garden Grove California


The memorial service, “’Simply Believe’: A Celebration of Charles ‘Mask’ Lewis Jr.,” is set for Tuesday, April 14 at 11:00 am at the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California. The service will be open to the public, and fans and friends alike will gather to pay tribute to the life that taught us that anything is possible if you “Simply Believe.”
If you are planning on attending the services please let us know at: so that we know how many to expect.
Public access parking is available thru gate 1&2 on Chapman Ave, Gate 3 on Lewis Street. Cathedral doors open at 10:00 AM. Please no cameras or a video in the cathedral.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that you contribute to the Charles "Mask" Lewis, Jr memorial fund. Information on the fund will be available on this site the week of April 19th. Please check back at that time

As TapouT co-founder Dan "Punkass" Caldwell told Sherdog: “I just really felt like the Crystal Cathedral was calling. It’s where Charles would have wanted it. [With] some of the spiritual aspects of Charles, I knew we really wanted it in a church…It almost looks like Superman’s lair with the shards of glass bursting up into the sky. There’s not another place like it, that I could think of, in Southern California. It was just so fitting for Charles.”

Without him, many of the fighters we know and love woulda never have made it to where they currently are. That is why everyone fuckign keeps writing about him. He helped this sport grow so much. Fuck all you haters, your momma woulda be ashamed.

Hey double B's. Quit buying into the CrapOut hype machine. Mask was no hero. He was just a clown-faced hawker of genuinely lame looking T-shirts who gained cred in the eyes of simpleminded retards by dressing up like a 40-something wanna be rockstar and paying fighters to put his logo on their ass. That's it. Beginning middle and end of his indelible legacy. To the best of my knowledge he never ran into a building to save a burning baby, didn't snipe a pirate to save a hostage captain, never cured a major disease. He's a dead T-shirt salesman. That's it. STOP WRITING ABOUT HIM!

I'm looking down at all of you in the mma world and I'm proud of all you. I have a huge erection everytime I think of two sweaty full grown men rolling around with their heads in each others groins. I knew from the start this mma thing was going to pick up and turn into something amazing and something special it is. If something in this world gives you a boner then all I have to say is follow it and never forget to "believe". "believe in your boner and you'll never go wrong kid."-Mask
