It has been an honor to have live next door to Chuck and Ramona for the past 37 years.

Chuck would visit with Ralph as he worked on our harley. He would give suggestions on how to make the bike go faster.

Chuck was a very talent person who could make anything. Especially like building cars his grand children and great grand children could race.

I enjoyed watching him on his riding lawn mower but could never get him to let me ride it.
