Charles "Chuck" was a really good man.  I went to McKinley with him when it was a grade school, grades 1-8.  He was one of a pack of really good men:  good scholar, good friend, and just a good human being.  We were all pals there because the enrollment was so small and friendly.  He will be missed...as a friend, teacher, father, husband....and every other role he held so earnestly.

I grew up with Charlie in Greenwood. He was a quite guy, but a good friend. We went to school at McKinley in Greenwood for 8 years. He was in our group of close friends of Jim Young, Roy Ryen, Bill McKee, and Bill Boyles. A GOOD GUY!
