Chuck it was a total shock when I heard you had passed. I had the pleasure of knowing you and family for over 40 years. We worked hand and hand together at CDTA and on the union board together. We were a force to be reckoned with . We stood and fought together for those who couldn’t. We became friends or should I say family. We encountered and went through a lot together. I must say I’m going to miss you my friend but never will I forget you. Your partner in crime and friend Karl to we meet again.
You will all be in my thoughts and prayers today. I am so sorry for your loss. Chucky was a great guy. Always smiling, funny as heck. A great dad and family man. I actually met him way before I married his cousin. The good old lamp post. We always had allot of laughs. Chucky was a wonderful friend to so many. I was shocked when I heard he had passed. Continued prayers and healing for the family. May he rest in peace. Give Kev a kiss for me when you see him.
So very sad to hear. Chucky will be remembered as always upbeat and smiling, a great dad and cousin. Although I haven’t seen him in a while, I can always look back and recall all the great times we had growing up.
Rest in peace Chuck.
