Angel and Family I am so sorry for your loss! Heaven got a great soul in Charlie. I always loved talking and teasing that mostly sweet natured man. He was a genuine friend and always true to his beliefs. I will miss that distinctive laugh!

Chuck will be greatly missed, I will always remeber how he got Ruth laughing and when John my husband went to reunions with me and I spoke of Chuckie John would refer to him as the packer fan and he immediately knew who I was talking about. Rest in peace Chuck and if u see my brother up there give him my love!

Angel and Chuck, I am so sorry for your loss. Charlie HaHa will forever be in our hearts. I will always remember him taking time on Christmas Eve to come over as Santa for Michael. He always made it so memorable. Please know that you are in the entire Cavanaugh’s thoughts and prayers! I am sure that he and Pat are enjoying some time in Heaven reminiscing about the good old days at Paddy B’s! God love all of you!!

Uncle Chuck was someone I felt I could always talk to. He stepped into a father figure role w/ grandpa when my parents first divorced. He showed up when I was arrested for ditching in high school. 🙄 Him and my mom almost made me stay overnight. I stopped being stubborn and went home.
He went to my father daughter bowling event for Girl Scouts. I told him I was terrible at bowling and on my first turn I had a strike LOL he looked at me and we started laughing. We all know his laugh. I love you Uncle Chuck and I’m glad you’re keeping mom and company.

Oh Charlie, I am going to miss him so much. He made me laugh everyday, with his off the wall comments and stubborn self. The last interaction I had was him getting mad and yelling at me because I woke him up, lol. All I could say was "I love you Charlie". I am so sorry Angel for your loss, and his family too. You've lost a good one.

Although I didn’t meet Chuck until late in his life, when he was suffering from many ailments, he was unfailingly kind to me and always thoughtful. I was grateful to be able to celebrate his 50th wedding anniversary with him and his beloved wife Angel. I will miss him, and send my love especially to Angel and his son Chuck
