That picture is awesome It is just how I remember that smiley guy. He made us laugh but he also had a wealth of knowledge and helped us in the workshop so many times to figure things out. Chuck and Carol are just priceless friends.
So sorry for your loss. I worked with Chuck at Electric Avenue. Always such a gentleman. We have a family cottage near Fremont and ran into him at the beach several years ago. What a happy surprise. May the Lord comfort you now and in the days ahead.
