    May the memories of our loved ones remain for a blessing.

    Chuck was a very talented man. He was a musician, an artist, naturally mechanically inclined and could sew anything. His most special talent, however, was his ability to make you feel that your relationship with him was special and that he recognized something special in you. He will be missed but he left a wonderful legacy. Our hearts go out to his special family and his beautiful and graceful Charlotte, for whom he never stopped proclaiming his love.

    Alan, Karen, and Felice, my heart goes out to your entire family. As a kid walking the block of Noble Drive, I looked forward to running into your dad in front of your house. He always took a special interest in how I was doing. He holds a special place in my childhood memories.
