Charles C. Gauder, quite simply, was a great man...who did great things...with great humility.
He was also our father...thank you, Dad for your legacy that you have left within us.
Your children: Michael, (Chuck, Jr.), David, Rob, Dianne, Marianne, Chris and Elizabeth
Chuck Gauder was my mentor for many years in The Avionics Laboratory. He gave me opportunities that others would or could not at the time. He was fair, honest, and defended his people with a passion. The world is a better place because he lived.
To the Gauder Family no words to describe the loss of such a man, Webster Dictionary has no such words.Mentor,awesome and amazing come close but for him he meant so much to so many. As for me he was a friend and a father of such amazing children that his legacy will continue thru them down for many generations. Love and peace. Dwight and Deb Waits
My prayers and condolences are with Chuck's family. I feel honored to have known Chuck. The Beavercreek soccer community is truly blessed to have had such a special, genuine, and selfless person on our side. I will miss joking with him during the Creek. Ankeney Complex will never be the same, but I am sure he will be watching over us all as we are out there.
Chuck Gauder.....soccer ambassador. Sometimes the games were tough, the coaches a little strident, the days hot. But if you were at Ankeney, you could always have a few minutes with Chuck. Then the world was OK again. Thanks Chuck! I will miss you, dearly.
