To share a memory of Chuck or leave a special message for his family, please visit the guestbook below.

"God took the strength of a mountain,
the majesty of a tree.
The warmth of a summer sun,
the calm of a quiet sea.
The generous soul of nature,
the comforting arm of night.
The wisdom of the ages,
the power of the eagle's flight.
Then God combined these qualities,
there was nothing more to add.
His masterpiece was now complete,
He lovingly called it, Dad."
