Chuck was truly a gentleman. We saw him all the time at the restaurant. We do miss you.

I remember watching the 1979 World Series with my dad. I was so impressed with Chuck Tanner's grace and humility as I watched Pittsburgh take the championship. Thanks for the memories Mr. Tanner. My dad is 87 now and we still talk about that series and what a great guy you are.

A big part of my childhood was watching the Pirates as often as possible and the fondness I had for him as the manager. As an adult, there was always warmth felt whenever he would be seen at a Pirates game. Thanks for 79' Chuck and the many enjoyable years in Pittsburgh.

My sincere condolence to the Tanner Family. Chuck was my manager when I played for the 1964 Quad City Angels in Davenport Iowa. He was loved by his players and fans in Davenport. His influence on me at 21 years old contributed to my successful career after baseball.

Chuck spoke at the 50th anniversary celebration of the 1957 world champion Milwaukee Braves, held in Milwaukee in 2007. He was so humble and sincere. We old-time Braves fans will never forget him.

Dear Tanner Family,
I just learned of your fathers passing on a post by Jay Paterno on facebook containg a very nice photo and story. My sincere condolence on your loss. I met him in the mid 70's at PSU when Brent was there. He was kind enough to give me a signed Oakland A's hat. I have always remembered him fondly as being a very kind man. I've not seen Brent in many years. Hello to Brent and sincere condolence from the Baer family.
