Chuck and I played guitars together through out the years. He was a very talented musician and singer, a good friend. One day we will jam "The Blues" again. RIP Chuck. Love Mike and Patty Williams.

I have not seen Chuck in a good many years. Yesterday, out of the blue, a friend asked if I knew anything about him or if he was all right. I did a Google search and that is how I found that he passed away three weeks ago. I am so sorry for his passing and for the sorrow of his family and friends. I met Chuck in a class at SWIC (then BAC) shortly after I had been discharged from the service in late 1971 or early 1972. Chuck had been laid off temporarily from Monsanto. We became friends and although our two roads diverged in a yellow wood and we walked separate paths in later years, I have never forgotten his friendship and many good times. He was always playing and collecting songs and I knew him early in his musical career. Once at a party where a good number of adult beverages had been consumed, I said to him, You know, if you worked at that you could be really good. He smiled and replied, Heck, music is meant to be PLAYED, not worked at. Chuck played music very well. I learned some valuable lessons from him and maybe one or two not so valuable, which is another tale. I am sorry he is gone and that I could not be there to pay my respects. He was a rare one and I'm glad I knew him.

I want to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. I have many fond memories of Chuck, including good times at Long Lake, and his participation in a mock art-show at my home. It was not just his musical talent, but his ability to make things fun, as he did at a Long Lake fundraiser for Mark Boeckmann, that made him special. I first met Chuck when I was in High School, and I remember Nancy. I recall being saddened when I heard of their divorce. I also remember the tragic loss of Richie. The last time I saw Chuck was during one of my trips home from GTMO. I took his electric bicycle for a test ride. I would have attended his memorial service, but I only learned of his passing several hours after the service. I guess that no eulogy can really do justice to a person, but in Chuck's case, that's especially true. There was something special about him that defies description. To say that he was one of a kind is an understatement. But so much for me preaching to the choir. Those who knew him will understand.

Now the "Monsanto Boys" are down to three. I'll save your table Wednesday. Love and prayers to your family.
