Patti and Family. I am so sorry for your loss and will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. I have so many fond memories of Chuck in our Millville neighborhood. Chuck taught me how to bowl and play ping pong above the breezeway. Our Sunday afternoons of bowling and then watching football are some of the best memories of my youth. He was a good man that I am honored to have known.
