    I am sorry for your loss. I was a cheerleader when Chuck played football at SGHS. We had some great times during high school. I re-acquainted with Chuck many years after high school. His demeaner had never changed. He was a gentleman and would give the shirt off his back to help someone. He will be missed. I will keep you (the family & Debbie) in my prayers.

    I met Chuck as a National Guard Recruiter. I got to know him and his parents then and later while working at Nortel. Chuck, my wife, my daughters and I used to play basketball at the Creedmoor Nortel plant. I will miss him and pray that God has welcomed him into Heaven. May God grant comfort and peace to his family and friends. This I ask in Jesus name. Amen!!!
