I was so surprised and saddened to hear of Chuck's passing. When I started at IUSD Chuck became my self-appointed mentor. I will always be grateful for his interest in collaborating with me on a number of projects and for his support and advice in my research and teaching endeavors. I will miss him. His family are in my thoughts and prayers .
