|We were so sorry to hear of Chuck's passing this morning while watching Sacred Heart's remote Mass. He sat by us at the 8am Mass until he decided to join the early morning choir. He was such a nice person & we enjoyed getting to know him a little during our few minutes before Mass started. We just viewed your video & enjoyed 'meeting' the rest of the family. We wanted to send our sympathy.|
|Our hearts are broken, we met Chuck at the American Legions Post 138 and quickly became very good friends. He loved throwing darts with our group and he had one heck of a throwing arm. He was notorious for always hitting the #1. Chuck so loved his wife and all of his children and grandchildren. He was so proud of all of his family. A small group of us took him a 80th birthday cake and a few gifts and he was so excited about the balloons and signs that you had placed in his yard. He posed for us in front of the balloons and sign with the biggest smile. I will forever remember him with that huge smile. We have lost a great friend but heaven gained a great man. Love to all.
