To Mary Jo and Family, It’s been a long time since I had seen your father; however, I will never forget his kindness – letting me tag along on a camping trip, years ago, and getting to watch he and your mom square dance. I am forever grateful for that wonderful memory. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May it be of some comfort to know that he is now with your mom and in the arms of our Lord.

I was saddened by the news of the loss of my friend .Please accept my deepest sympathy. I have known Chuck for seventy five years and I am fortunate that our paths had crossed. Chuck was a caring person who loved God and Our Church. He is one the last remaining giants of our era and he will surely be missed. We are thankful to his parents for giving us Chuck. We celebrate his new life with Our Lord and humbly ask for his prayers.

Chuck was a good friend to remote control flying. He was always a willing volunteer to explain the basics of aviation to the children at the schools we visited. He took hundreds of photographs during the years that he was part of the hill hoppers flying club. Keep flying straight and true.
