    My condolences to his children and siblings-
    I was shocked to open the paper and see that “Chuck” had passed away!! I got to know him thru my previous job at an insurance company. He was a caring, giving man who was always helping someone in need but never wanted anyone to make a fuss over him. He spoke highly and with pride about his children and family. If Chuck liked you, you instantly became his friend. I will miss his quirky sense of humor, BIG smile, floppy hat and numerous stories. I am glad he became my friend.

    Thoughts are with you all,
    Paula Olson

    To Melissa,Bryan (Charlie), Clydia, sending hugs and prayers to you guys and all your families. God be you all in the days to come. Chuck’s family lived across the street from me on Covington St when Melissa and Bryan were tots, and I bowled on the same league with Clydia.

    Sorry for your loss. I didn’t know Chuck real well, but I spoke to him when I saw him. I knew Marge from Browns Valley Christian Church.
