Never, ever saw Chucky without a smile. One of the sweetest hearts I’ve ever known. My 91 year old mom even remembered buying him new jeans on a trip to Nashville. That’s some impression!! Love you always & happy trails, sweetie!

Words cannot begin to describe the pain of losing such a wonderful friend . The many nights spent talking and telling him my deepest secrets and sharing so many laughs together , hearing him speak so highly of his children and grandchildren just made life so much sweeter .
We met in florida and wouldn't you know it I ended up in beautiful Tennessee, we had a plan of getting some rocking chairs and growing old together as friends rocking away and enjoying life . As we all know life has it's own plan and things didn't go according to our plans but we still remained friends and chatted along the way , he promised to one day take me to the infamous dragon and show me all of its excitement, it's ok because I know as I speak be is soaring around those bends with the crisp air hitting his face . Soar high my friend and just remember to save my chair for when I get there . I love you my dear friend .
