I loved Chuck like a Brother.
We grew up together, he lived on 50th St. and I lived on 49th St. We were best friends growing up and is the reason that I started playing golf. His dad joined Woodward Golf Club And Chuck would invite me to go play. From age 11 to college years we play golf together At Woodward. We would stay in touch a little sometimes a year or two would go by, but we would always catch back up and would love talking. My regret is that we didn’t stay in touch more. A sad day when I heard of his death and a part of me died as well. Chuck I’ll see you again someday my friend.

Chuck and his family were a huge part of my life for many years. Met him in 1967 when we started our many adventures in travel, on the course, fishing the rivers, and hunting the woods. Really great sense of humor and a fun guy to be around.

I know Chuck will be missed by all. I'm thankful I have all the great memories and good times to recall. My prayers for Mrs Evans and the entire family.

Chuck and I played in a small Dixieland Band that was sponsored by the Optimist Club while we were Freshmen and Sophomores at Ensley High School in B'ham. Chuck played Alto Sax, Tommy Blair also played Alto Sax, Bobby Horton played Trumpet, Charles Wallace played Trombone, Jimmy Vakakis played the Drum Set and I played the Clarinet. I believe we named it 'The Optimistic Five Plus One'. There may have been another member, but for the life of me I can't remember for sure. The mind is a terrible thing to lose.

Chuck had a good sense of humor and a quick laugh. He was also a great friend to many. His birthday was the day after mine.

I extend my condolences and best wishes to his family!
God bless!

Chuck and I were in the Ensley High Band together. I have never laughed so hard when we were together. He always had a big smile on his face and a pleasant attitude to go with it. RIP Chuckie!

Chuck and I were friends at Ensley. We not only were in the band together for 3 years, but we sat next to each other in Mrs. Ponder's chemistry class ...
trying so hard to pass that course. He always had a big smile and was a good friend. Even though we lost contact with us moving over the years, I often asked about him to my cousin 's son , Jeff, who lived in the Gardendale area and was friend's with Chuck's son.
Rick and I are so very sorry, we pray for comfort and peace for Chuck's family.
