Michaelene, I remember walking with Chuck in the halls of Triton College and the first few times he saw you walk past us. His eyes would light up when he saw you, even before your first encounter. I many times tried to find something on Facebook or through the Scott School thread to see how you guys were with no success. I so sorry that I didn’t stay in touch. Chuck was someone you could never get out of your head, truly a special person. I am so sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Jim Jensen or “ Harvey as Chuck used to call me.

Michaelene, I'm not sure if you remember us from the old days in Barnes, Wisconsin. Chuck was Terry's best man when we got married in 1977. Carolyn had us borrow her car for the day so we did not drive around in the old pickup truck. We think of you often. Chuck is one of our banking clues (who was the best man at your wedding) Terry & Lorna Randall anrolterry@gmail.com

Chucky was a favorite in our family. He was like a big teddy bear and we loved him. I played softball with Chuck for many years and have many fond memories of him. We called ourselves the Aches and Pains, cause we were getting up there in age, Chuck played a great first base and could really stretch for the ball. Our team was very tight knit and we will all miss him. I know that every member of our team had the highest respect for Chuck as a human being. He was very loving to his family and was a role model to us all. I think wealth is measured by the friends that we make and hearts that we touch, so he passed as a very rich man. We will play the dice game in your memory
