Friends and family remember Charles "Walt" Rosenthal as a sincere and kind-hearted man who had a passion for the outdoors and who was to turn 59 on Wednesday. But tragedy brought that passion to an end April 6 when Rosenthal, a Burbank High School graduate, died in an accident at Mammoth Mountain near China Bowl run. As a member of the Mammoth Ski Patrol, Rosenthal and two fellow patrolmen were surveying a hazardous snow area when the two slipped into a volcanic gas vent. Rosenthal fell to his death in an attempt to rescue the two men, said Dep. John Estridge of the Mono County Sheriff's Department.
