Chuck was an avid tennis player, starting in his teenage years and continuing for his entire life. He played for enjoyment and exercise and in many club tournaments. He also loved traveling, especially with his family. They loved hiking in the mountains of Colorado and going to most any beach, the warmer the climate, the better. Chuck liked restful beach vacations, but everybody else forced him into activities!

R.I.P., "Fireworks Chuck". You'll always be fondly remembered by your neighbors in Northbrook. We could always count on you to supply us with an awesome display of celebratory explosions on the 4th of July. One year, I remember, there was a friendly back and forth rivalry between the Pletchers and Jennings, each taking turns to try and outdo the other with the biggest/best fireworks. The oohs and ahhs, I still hear them. We all miss you terribly and wished you didn't go so soon but what an honor it is to have known you and that we still get to love on your family.
