I’m sorry I missed the wake today, please forgive me. I really enjoyed talking with your dad, plus I like The Vikings too. He was a great man. Find Peace knowing he touched many lives and will be dearly missed.

Chuck represented to us he had absolute love for life.

Chuck's Love is brought to perfection in this, that we should have confidence on the day of judgement; for our relation to this world is just like his love.
Love has no room for fear; rather, perfect love casts out all fear.
And since fear has to do with punishment, love is not yet perfect in one who is afraid.
We, for our part, Love because he first loved us.

May Chucks soul be in the loving arms of the Lord, Christ Jesus.

Dear Sharon & Family,

I am so sorry for your loss, please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of Charlie. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I remember being little and Charlie visiting my folks on his motorcycle with his curly hair! I was thrilled when I was allowed to ride on the bike, even if it was only around the block :) But the best memories I have and will always cherish are the mornings I spent having coffee (and sometimes donuts) with Charlie and Johnny in the crane repair office at LTV. Charlie was a wonderful man, always with a warm smile and heartfelt hello, and I will miss him deeply.

Chuck, you always cracked me up and put a smile on my face. You have been so candid, forthright, and entertaining at the same time. You’ve always told it like it was and, don’t worry, I won’t tell anybody stuff you told me lol. Rest in Heaven.

Chuck was a giver, a giver of a good laugh, a giver of a helping hand, a giver of a listening ear. We come across only a few people, in our lives, we can honestly say, “You’re one of the best”, Chuck, you were definitely, one of the best. Love you ❤️
