I am so sorry to know Chuck has gone. He was one the best friends you could ever ask for. His laugh and kind heart always were present. I met Chuck when he was still in the Navy and he would visit us and stay with us and we just love him! I pray for the family to have the strength during this time. He loved his family and I know he will be missed by everyone.

Chuck was my shipmate aboard the USS McCandless. He was a good, kind man and I will remember him.
Fair winds and a following sea, shipmate. Rest in peace until I see you again.

When I first met Chuck at Grandview he was kind of shy. We become close friends here . I would see him every day in his room covered up with his favorite blank. The most Ill miss about him was his smile and laughter. Rest In Peace my friend.
