If I would have had to choose another father other than the one God gave me, it would have been Chuck. He was a man of integrity and wisdom. He was kind, gentle and friendly. When I moved into the area in the mid 80’s, they took me under their wing. They were a second set of parents to me. Their home was ALWAYS open. He was calm and wise, easy to talk to. He was my “go-to” man for advice. The special chair and clock he made for me just became priceless. He is happy now with Jesus and reunited with Jo. Heaven just got sweeter for me. Deepest sympathies to all the family.
