Chuck was a genuinely nice person who was a very important supporter of the Carlisle historical Society. Personally. I appreciated his looking out for my parents when he was their next-door neighbor when they were in their 90's.

Oh the memories!! Since he’s been in my life from birth, there are sooo many great memories. I love him so much. He was always running his hand over my hair - he said it was very soft. I loved it.😉 When we were little he hooked a saucer up to the lawnmower and drove around the snow covered yard at the big yellow farm house. The little car he bought for you two, but we all loved driving around the yard. He was such a big kid. There’s a song by Brad Paisley and Dolly that talks about riding a rain drop in heaven - if there are no Harley’s in heaven I see Chuck riding a gazelle!! 😂 He was such a special man!! He left us with so much love and special memories. Can’t wait to hear what he’s been doing in heaven when we get there.
