I moved in across the street from the Landry's when i was in 4th grade and immediately made friends with our new neighbors across the street. I can remember playing baseball in the front yard and constantly knocking on Chuck's door to retrieve a ball from his backyard. Eventually, he left the gate unlocked and i could go into the backyard whenever i needed to. He also umpired many of my little league baseball games as a kid. They also had a collection of VHS movies in the basement that i would treat like blockbuster every day during the summer to keep busy, minus the late fees! Chuck was always there to visit with and be a friend. The kindest man ive ever had the pleasure of knowing. Later in life, my 3 young children grew to know and love Chuck as i did. I would always look forward to him yelling across the street "Hey big guy" as i got out of my car at my parents home. I will hold those memories close and will remember him as the kind, gentle giant he was. RIP my friend and we will keep watch on your home as you always did for us.

Chuck was a wonderful neighbor, he shared many amazing stories when he umpired little league games and he even umpired some of our kids games. When Max was in the hospital one year at Christmas, Chuck and Charmaine brought him a Singing Santa sitting on a Harley, to this day, we still bring out Singing Santa at Christmas and our grandkids get the biggest kick out of him. Our hearts are saddened and Mr Landry, you will be missed by every life you touched. Max & Kathy~
