I have had the honor of living next door to Chuck for the past 30 years.
He has been the very best neighbor anyone could ever ask for!! Chuck and Mag have helped my husband and I with anything we needed! He has plowed my driveway, loaned us tools and equipment, has given great advice, but mostly, has been a wonderful and delightful friend!! He has always told it like it is.. I’ve always appreciated and respected Chuck…
We will miss him so much!! :(

So sorry to hear of Chuck’s passing. Although I didn’t know him, I knew several of his children through my brother, Brett. Based in the great children he raised, he must have been a wonderful person. My sympathy to each of you. You’re going to celebrate a great reunion one day!

Thinking of all of you and wishing you blessings of peace and comfort as you remember Chuck today and every day.
My absolute hands down best memory of Chuck is when I was in my teens. He sold me his car for $75! That car was my ticket to FREEDOM! As one of many you can imagine what it was like getting a ride. I had never before been as happy as I was that day! My very own car keys-the BEST! Thank you Chuck!
Our family will be with yours in spirit as you celebrate Chuck’s life on Thursday.
Much love to you all-
