I had no idea that CC had passed. I'm so sorry for the loss of such a great man. I worked with Chuck for 10 years, and I that time I learned many things, most importantly to Place My Faith in Jesus Christ. We had many great times and millions of laughs. There will never be another Apache 6! Love and peace to all of you! Respectfully yours
