Charles
McNall, Charles (Chuck) Raymond (1944-2007) of Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, much beloved husband and life partner of Suzy McNall for 32 years, passed away on May 31, 2007. Chuck was born and raised in Monroe, Washington and came to California in 1967. He worked in Garrett-Allied Signal, Hoechst Celanese and Robinson Helicopter as an inspector and was well liked by many of his colleagues. He leaves 4 wonderful children and eight grandchildren; Jennifer Wensauer and her husband, Dennis and their son, Austin; Michael McNall and daughter-in-law, Karyl and their two sons, Michael Jr and Kenneth of Oregon; daughter Theresa Mason and son-in-law George and their three children, Shelby, Megan and Jacob of Oregon; and daughter Brenda and her two children, Brittany and Amber of Washington. He is also survived by two sisters, Patricia Malone and her husband, Jim of Lake Stevens, Washington and Sandra Cooper of Everett, Washington. Chuck was an original man who was dearly loved by his family and treasured by his friends. He always helped someone willingly and generously and frequently gave money to homeless people. His quiet inner strength, character and dignity touched everyone that knew him. He could be quiet one minute and then giving and playing jokes the next because he enjoyed living life with his family and all the friends he loved. Chuck had the unique knack of going anywhere and just talking to people. Chuck loved motorcycle riding, driving and taking trips to different places, working around his homes doing projects, loved nature, watching basketball and spending time with his family. Chuck will be missed very much and his loving memory will always be with his family and friends. A public viewing will be held on June 7, 2007 from 3pm to 7pm at the White and Day Colonial Mortuary on 901 Torrance Blvd., Torrance. He will be buried in the Monroe Cemetery, Washington where his mother, grandfather and other relatives are buried. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the U.S. National Park Foundation or a homeless shelter of your choice. The Surcease of Sorrow By Kelly L. Delaney Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. I am the sparkle in the snow. I am the shredded leaves that blow. I am the sunlight on growing grain. I am the gentle summer rain. I am the quiet bird at night. Circling about; Taking flight. So do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. A thousand times we needed you A thousand times we cried If love alone could have saved you you never would have died a heart of gold stopped beating two twinkling eyes closed to rest God broke our hearts to prove He only took the best never a day goes by that you’re not in my heart and soul.

Chuck, don’t worry, Juan and I will always be there for Suzy whenever she’ll need us.

  6. My brother will never be forgotten by my husband and myself. He was a very forgiving person, always thinking positive. The high light of his life was his marriage to his wonderful wife Suzy. He was an inspiration to me, sharing stories of the many trips he took. Our many telephone conversations were always upbeat and he always ended with “I love you”. We, in turn, will always love him and will not forget his loving, happy nature.

  7. Suzy and family I am so very sorry to hear of your loss–Words cannot express my sorrow. I lost a very special cousin on Friday night and was feeling pretty sorry for myself until I heard about Charles. This is a difficult time and I really have been praying for all of you. Much love In Christ Jackie

  8. Suzy, My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. I’m so sorry for your loss. Your co-worker & friend, Carla
