For 50 years, Becker County township government had no better friend than Charles Rew.

Rew, 87, passed away on Tuesday, Feb. 14, but not before leaving his mark on Burlington Township, where he served on the board of supervisors for five decades -- until ill health forced his retirement a couple of years ago.
