Chuck was my brother-in-law - married to my sister, Beth. He was funny, smart - and irreverent at times. I admired him because he took care of his family - no matter what it took. Although he was a doctor, he wasn't hung up on status. He drove a truck for a time while he worked through the process of getting his credentials in Georgia. He selflessly handled the dental work for several members of my family.

Just three days before his death, he spoke at my mother's 90th birthday party - giving a heartfelt talk about how much she had meant to him. More than a few people told me it was the most meaningful and touching part of the birthday celebration. And many people had tears in their eyes as he spoke.

What meant the most to me, though, is how much Chuck supported my granddaughter Lily when she was going through treatment for leukemia at Vanderbilt's children's hospital. He followed her battle on Caringbridge, and he always asked about her. Even in his speech at the birthday celebration 3 days before his death, Chuck mentioned Lily and her leukemia journey. He was no fair-weather friend: Chuck's concern "went the distance" through years of treatment and afterwards.

Chuck will be sorely missed by our family. Rest in peace, Chuck.

To the family, friends and co-workers of Dr. Roszel, my sincere condolences to you. I have the pleasure of being a member of the Georgia Public Health Dental organization, where I met Dr. Roszel . Having attended meetings and sessions with Dr. Roszel, I have admired his straightforwardness, his care and concern, not only for dental care for the children of Georgia, but also for adults. Dental services were always at the forefront of his agenda. He will be greatly missed by you all and the dental community, near and far in our state. I am thankful that the journey of our lives crossed. May God bless you all and give you peace.
Sincerely,

Charles Roszel
