Our condolences to the family. Memories, there are so many. The Portugese dinners at Chuck's mothers home were unforgettable, especially the fried potatoes and beans. The hard top races in San Jose, helping him cutting the hay here in Hollister, watching and going to Roller Derby matches in Oakland (cheering for Charlie O'connell. ), and best of all, just being the best brother-in-law ever. Chuck was such a kind man, would help anyone, and will be remembered by many. R.I.P. and love you always.
