Jenelle, Terry & Holly,

Sorry for your loss ... I remember going over to the Danner’s Salads Plant picking up b-b-q, mustard potato salad & ambrosia for church luncheon or different events and seeing Chuck working in the kitchen (cooking or washing dishes) or on the loading/shipping area or even out running a route; hard telling where you might find him. Such a great kind hearted man. For smaller portions, you could kind their products at: Pat n Sam’s, Marquette Heights or Nyman’s Market CreveCoeur. Chuck will truly be missed ...

It was a luxury for me to learn all you taught me about the dog business.
And, it was and is so great a joy for me to help out with your beloved German Shepherds..
Thank you Chuck.

Jenelle and Holly.
My sympathy’s to you both. Chuck always had a strong personality that was contagious. He taught me a lot and brought out many strengths in myself. He also lead me to the best breed of dog in the world. He will always have a special place in my heart.
Prayers to you both during this difficult time

I am so sorry to hear about Chuck passing away. I know how much my Dad enjoyed his friendship. When Dad was near the end, Chuck called to see how things were going. When I told him the directions I had given the doctors, he told me that I had done what Dad would have wanted. To me that day he was an angel who was there when I needed support. Never would have described him as an angel before but that day he certainly was. I will pray for you and Holly. I hope your memories of your years together will be a comfort to you.
