Chuck was not only a loving and fun brother, but a wonderful uncle to my children, Jeffrey, Holly and Carrie. We all have great memories of family get togethers. We will miss Chuck very much.
I remember Chuck and his family (Bakers) from our beach vacations many years ago. Whenever we would just sit around and talk Chuck always seemed genuinely concerned about whatever it was that was on my mind. He was a good friend. RIP Chuck, you will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family.
