I am so sorry for your loss. I spoke to Chuck many time since my husbands name is Chuck.

We were talking to our daughter today about her grandpa Royce Caho and that the family was from Peoria also that her grandpa worked/retired with Caterpillar. I googled to show her the history and found out about Chuck.

I hope you lean on God for comfort and know the Caho’s in Oklahoma are praying for you!

May God Richly Bless You All!

My favorite memory of Charles is bowling with him and his wife at the Christian Center. We always had a great time. May our memories bring us comfort and as we remember the love, as we mourn his loss, may we also celebrate his life.

Dear Susan, Tony, Jon and Russ - all family, I was saddened to hear of the loss of you Father. Your Dad was a wonderful man, as were both of your parents. They were always so great to me and all the children in the neighborhood. I have memories to this day of his always smiling. Your parents were always doing something fun, such as making candy, taking us to vacation bible school, etc. He really had a life well lived and I will always remember him
