Uncle Charlie will hold a special place in the hearts of my family. I always felt honored that you were chosen as my Godfather. You had an easy personality and a gift for conversation. You were a joy to be around.

Chuck was a great guy to know especially for all the fine years that we were together in the American Legion Post 159. He always had a smile on his face, and he had a great sense of humor. He was always a very good worker and fun person to be around. We will really miss him.

I'll say goodby for now to my brother in law, Chuck. You were like a brother to me and I love you like a brother. A&M football game day won't be the same without meeting you for breakfast or lunch. I know Dorothy is glad to see you! Vios Con Dios! Margie
