Charlie Share, the captain of the only St. Louis Hawks team to win an NBA championship, died Thursday at his home in Chesterfield. He was 85.

Mr. Share was a 6-11 center on that 1958 championship team. He had a 10-year NBA career.

After basketball, Mr. Share went into business and founded Sharick Packaging. It was later sold to Jefferson Smurfit Corp. He and his wife, Rose, then pursued her interest in breeding, raising and showing American Saddlebred horses.

In addition to his wife of 61 years, he is survived by two daughters; five grandchildren; six great-grandchildren, and a sister.

A visitation and memorial service will be June 19 at Schrader Funeral Home in Ballwin.

Always wondered if the Celtics would have gone after Russell if Share had signed with them.
