Words do an injustice in explaining how much we will miss Uncle Chuck. He will remain very alive in our memories and admiration. He brought pleasure to everyone he met and will be sadly missed. Uncle Chuck often spoke of his family with affection. He will always remain in our hearts and memories. May God light your way and give you comfort.
