He was a United States Army Air Corps veteran of WWII serving from 1946-1948. Chuck was known to a lot of people as just "Peet" and many never knew his first name. Peet was a truck driver and loved his work. He enjoyed talking about his time spent in the service and the many miles he drove. He met many of his long-time friends through trucking. Peet always had time for a cup of coffee and a smoke and to share a memory, play a game of cribbage or share a story you hadn't yet heard. Chuck's family was very large and he would do anything for his brothers and sisters, whom he dearly loved. Chuck was a retired Teamster, a 32nd Degree Mason, member of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite and American Legion Post #54. Chuck married the former Joyce A. Gray. She preceded him in 1995.

He also is survived by his sisters Laura (Chuck) Monaweck and Bonnie (Phil) Cortright.

Chuck's companion of many years, Sandy Conklin, and her family Lynn (Chris) Smith, Doug Conklin, four grandchildren and one great grandchild will miss him greatly. A special cousin, MarthaJane Stockreef, always had his attention and they always looked out for each other.
