Chuck was the sweetest, fun loving and enjoyable person you would ever meet. I first met him and his family through Horse Shows in the 1970's that my Mom and brother Scott participated in around Pike County. Later I became friends with Chuck through Eddie, Greg and Possum in the 1980's playing softball and fishing.
I have always missed him after his accident but have never forgot about Chuck. He was/is very special. My Heart and Prayers go out to his Family and Friends. T6

Chuck and I attended school together from Elementary to Jr. High, until our Graduation at PHS. We were always friends dating back to our Kindergarten days 54 years ago at East School. He he was a tough guy that always played hard nosed, and played to win regardless of the sport. There was never a play he didn't give 100%. He was a Winner in every aspect. Chuck had a great smile and a Big Heart. I pray for his soul and wish heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. He will be sorely missed on earth, but happy resting in Heaven. God Bless Chuck and his family.
