I went to the Apprentice School with Chuck. He was a good guy and later I saw him at Casey's; he hadn't changed, still loved cars like me. I am so sorry for his family.

I had the great honor of knowing Chuck for more then 40 years and working with him most of that time. There was never a day that Chuck didn't make me laugh. I have never met anyone like Chuck and don't think now I know I never will. He will be missed by all that knew and loved him. I could go on for hours with all the good times we had but not now. May he rest in peace. I will think of him often.

WOW, what a shock. I worked with Chuckles many years; had some great times. Sure wish we could get one more part number 408617 for those of us who knew and loved this guy. You will be missed; special prayers go out to you.

   To Mrs. Jones: We were so very sorry to hear Mr. Chuck has left us. I just wish I had known him longer. I really thought the world of him; he was so good to me and helped me a lot with my truck. I know he will be missed by so many. He was a wonderful man. Please let me know if I can do anything. Prayers are with you! GOD SPEED, MR. CHUCK!
