  1. My family and I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful man and spending an incredible week on a house boat with him and his loving family. I will never forget this time or how great it was to get to know such an awesome guy!! I know your family will miss your laugh, your love for fishing, and all the moments you had together. May all the fun memories help them get through this, but at this moment I know you and Nancy are in each other’s arms again, two very special angels <3

  2. Thinking of this still makes me smile – Seeing you in your garage (not unusual) but this time I got to see Caitlin give you a manicure amongst all your tools =)

  3. What a fine man and awesome neighbor. We always knew all was right with the world when we got up to see Chuck at work in his garage. It just doesn’t feel right not seeing him smile and wave every day. He was a great sport, too, whenever our kids had a school project they needed help with. The only comfort may be knowing that he and Nancy are together again. We miss them both. Love and hugs to Amber and the whole family.

  4. Dearest Amber and Family, My deepest sympathy for the loss of your father. I hope that in time memories of him bring smiles and fond memories instead of sadness. Lots of love, Lori James

  5. Amber, My wife and I wish to express our condolences with the passing of your father. Our thougts and prayers are with you and your family.

  6. To Chuck and Nancy’s children and grandchildren. I was so sorry to hear of Chuck’s passing. I remember him as warm and kind, and with a great sense of humor. Nancy was so proud of him. She volunteered him to fix our deck lights which continue to shine through rains and high winds. You’ve lost some very wonderful people, but I know they’ve left you with some lovely memories.
