Uncle Chuck was always available to help anyone who needed him. He saw things that needed his attention and just got them done. He valued honesty, integrity, common sense, and hard work. With all the work he did he still had time for fun. I'll always remember him as "Chubby Pitcher" in the Anderson softball games. With fondest memories, his niece Becky Failor

Jean, Diane, Scott and Family
I want to express my deepest Sympathy for the loss of Chuck.  The memories we have when you lived in St. Louis, my visits to Avon Lake and the farm are too many to mention. You all have a special place in my heart!
It's been a tough road you all have been on for a long time, but I know Chuck and my Dad are probably having a great time reliving the times we shared together.  May God bring you comfort and the Peace of Christ be with you always!

Love Mark

We are so sorry to see the passing of Chuck. He and Norma Jean were fondly remembered neighbors here in Avon Lake and will be missed. We designed our house addition after the one he had put into their house and he was very helpful in offering his advice.

Dear Jean,  Our deepest sympathy to you and your family.  We are sorry to hear of Chuck's passing but happy to see the picture of his smiling face.  The obit was just right when it said he had a big heart and loving nature.  It was a joy to know both of you.  Your neighbors at 224 James Circle, across from Zemaneks. Jane, Dennis, and Kevin Traster--the boy who watered your new landscaping so long ago!
