I have many pleasant memories of your dad, and also your mom, when they were members of our Retired Federal Employees (NARFE) group here in Granbury. They were a delightful couple and I am sure they left all of you with many happy memories. God bless the family and friends.

My mother, Alice Headley, bowled with Chuck. She just passed away on 3/3. Chuck was a NICE man. They don't make them like that anymore. Your house in DCBE is still Chuck and Charlotte's place.

Chuck was a really important person in my teen years, and I've admired him ever since. He was quick witted, kind, and had a great sense of humor. The world has lost a wonderful man. Condolences to Kathy and all the family.
