Chuck Mulinari was a very good man. We were neighbors for over 12 years and in that time I learned he loved his family, his country and God. His grandson Matt and my son Zack became best buddies at about 7 years old when we moved there. The boys had lots of energy and needed to be molded into responsible young men. I am so glad that Chuck was there to be such a good role model.

To the family, my heart is breaking for you. I hope that you can find some comfort with family and friends who gather to celebrate Chuck's life and share good memories they have of him. I feel that our loved ones never really die as they live in our hearts and memories forever.

Our deepest condolences,
Troy and Nicole Notz

I am a tenor drummer with the St. Andrew Pipe Band and only knew Chuck in passing when we did parades with our respective bands. He always had a friendly smile and a nice word and one could easily tell that he enjoyed playing very, very much.
