Thinking good thoughts for the entire Chukerman family in honor of Chuk, Scott and Wendy’s Dad. Always great to see him at our softball games in Glencoe. A life well lived and one the entire family can be proud of now and forever.

The Circle Boys

The circle boys remember. We remember that it never mattered how cold it was or how much snow arrived the night before. We were just kids. We knew that once school was over and the dusk finally fell, we’d gather in the driveway at 891 for another round of our epic street hockey battles. The rink at Chukerman’s house was always open. The rosters were legendary: Big Chuck and Little Chuck (second c’s allowed), Newms, Rossy, Schulie, Dimmers, maybe Mil and Kerman, and the occasional sprinkling of a wider West School crowd. The chaos would descend upon the Chukerman home like an invasion of pestilent locusts with our sticks slamming the asphalt and our shouts at some wild infraction or glorious goal. On some of those nights, we’d stop play to let the big Oldsmobile pull into the garage; Mr. C. arriving home after a long day at work, his face warmly lit by the dashboard light. We can still see the smile he had for us all and the encouraging wave of his hand while we all got back to the game. Thanks, Mr. C, for always letting us play. We circle boys remember.

Such wonderful memories of Mr. Chukerman from growing up with Wendy in Glencoe. Always the doting father and always so sweet and gentle to Wendy's friends. One memory stands out in particular, and that is Wendy's sweet sixteen party at the Chukerman home on Thornapple Lane, and Mr. Chukerman was so happy helping serve all the girls, and just wanted to make sure everyone was having a good time. What a long and wonderful life and what a beautiful legacy he has left behind. My love to the entire family. xoxo

Not just one memory of Uncle Mitchell, but so, so many. The kind smile, laugh and love that Uncle Mitchell spread will be the fondest memory of all. How much he was loved by the Groupe family!! Irwin and Evelyn held his friendship so close to their hearts. May the entire Chukerman family bask in the glow of the loving husband and father who guided them so lovingly through life. We are with you now, in our hearts and souls.

Love, Steve and Marsha Lidskin
