Chas was my first cousin, the one closest to my own age, and we would pal around when the gang got together. Many fond memories of a kind and gentle man and his family. He will be missed, my heart goes out to Anita and the kids. Sorry I did not learn of his passing sooner, I would have loved to have been there to celebrate his life.
