I knew Chuck through his sons who I grew up with for a number of years. I fondly remember visiting their home often and he was always kind and pleasant to us. Chuck was an impassioned and godly man. He will be remembered.

He was my cousin, and so happy to be able to so. We had a lot of good times when we were younger. I'll miss him very much.

Chuck was certainly one of those "stand out" characters that you never forget. It seemed to me that he lived his life in high gear, full speed. Chuck was a key piece in God's working my own professional and personal destiny. I am convinced he was what helped to save my career and to bring national attention to a big issue and problem in our education system and socio-political scene at the time. Through our providential connection Chuck became a good friend and encouraging brother in Christ. What a stalwart pillar of faith and faith in action. What a wonderful solid family God gave him that he was on loan to until his time (albeit way too short) was done.

To Chuck’s family. My sincere condolences for your loss. Chuck and I crossed paths occasionally as volunteers at the RDU USO and I remember him as a very friendly person that loved interacting with and supporting our USO guests. I know no words can ever ease the pain of such a loss but I hope you find great comfort in the years to come of happy memories with him. Warm regards,

I got to spend quite a bit of time with Chuck and Tammy recently working service projects with Rebuilding Together and their home. I was so sad to hear of Chuck's passing as he had thoughts of coming to serve with us the morning he passed. He spoke often of what was happening in his life and family. I know of an upcoming wedding that he was very excited about. I will miss Chuck's dry sense of humor and his candid discussions we had covered in dust and sweat. Will fondly recall the time we spent together.
