  1. Aimee, I am so sorry to hear of your Dads Passing. Please know I’m thinking of you in this difficult time. Lisa Simpatico

  2. Chuck, you were a great man and friend to all. My kids and I really enjoyed our time at the lanes together, especially your breakfast. Always had a smile on your face. You will be missed. RIP,
    Wayne and Barb Lewis

  3. It is hard to wrap my head around this. Growing up we tend to dismiss the thought of burying our older relatives. It may have been years since I saw you last Uncle Chuck, but I have always had you stored away in my memories. Nights at grandmas when I was super young and you would tease me with your teeth, or times at the old yellow house hanging out in Aimee’s decked out cowboy room and feefee always popping for me, many memorable times at the bowling alley, bowling at the mall! The list goes on! You will be missed! Thank you for being a part of my life! Now you can be pain free and happy! Aimee and Juliana my heart breaks for you both! Sending my thoughts during this time! I am going to try to make it Saturday if I can find a ride! Sending my love!

  4. Condolences to the family. Chuck was a classmate of mine. He was such a great athlete and friend. He will be sadly missed.

  5. Dear brother, will miss your happy face and laughter. I don’t think I ever seen you in a bad mood. It was so great to see you at Thanksgiving, with all of our siblings and other family members. RIP in peace my brother you will surely be missed. Love you to the moon and back.

  6. I grew up with Chuck in Albion. We walked to school every day till we could drive. He was a wonderful athlete. He was the luckiest guy I ever knew. He ALWAYS won at everything, games of skill or chance, no matter. We did pretty much everything together. I flew out to be in his wedding in Rochester. Seems so long ago. Always the life of every party. Loved by many people here. I have old photos I would be happy to share if anyone’s interested. I have a huge void in my heart. God bless you old buddy.

  7. Grew up with Bup and I was so lucky to count him as my friend. I’m deeply saddened over his passing, but can’t help but smile recalling all the fun we had! He’ll always be 18 in my mind. I’ll drink one to ol’ Bup tonight.
