  6. Uncle Chuck was like a big brother to me. From playing football together in Jr. high school to fishing, spending Sundays watching football and all those conversations about Jesus and the bible in our later years. I will miss him but I will be there on those golden streets with him some day soon.

  9. Cherlyn and Barbara,

    My prayers are with you in your time of loss. Chuck is good now, in the hands of the “fisher of men”, probably trying to tell him the best “lure” to use! LOL! Time will help heal the wounds of your loss, but we will always remember Chuck. May you be blessed and comforted.il.c
