Dear Sharon, Katlyn, Austin and Gavin,
Mary and I want to express our deepest sympathy to you on the loss of your father and grandfather. I know that Chuck dearly loved being in the choir at St.Mary’s. He also enjoyed calling Bingo at the Care Center and would visit with my mom. He also would enjoy his swim time at the Four Seasons indoor pool. May he now rest in the arms of Jesus.

He was a great man and will be greatly missed by those who knew him. He used to tell me that he’ll say hello to my grandfathers for me if he happens to run into them in heaven. Condolences from myself and my family.
