So sorry to hear this. Chuck was a good friend who was always willing to lend a helping hand when I needed it. I met Chuck when he and I worked at RCC many years ago. I helped take care of Lucy and Jeri also. He was a very proud father of all his children and grandkids. My heart goes out to you all.
