CHARLES "CHUCK" NELSON SHOLAN ALBURGH - Charles "Chuck" Nelson Sholan, 76, of Alburgh, passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2012, with his loving family at his side. Chuck worked for A.N. Deringer, Inc. as a licensed Custom House Broker for 34 years, a job that he thoroughly enjoyed, as well as the people he worked with and his many customers. He was a member of the Plattsburgh Elks Club for over 25 years, and a Quarter Century Member of the Traffic Club of Montreal. He was an avid reader who enjoyed meeting and talking with people about current events. Chuck always enjoyed a good game of golf and was a member of the North Country Golf Club, Rouses Point, N.Y., for many years. As everyone knows, Chuck loved playing poker at any time; traveling to Las Vegas and other parts of the country with family and friends and also loved the warmer climate. He is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Eleanor; sister, Nancy Peck of Burlington; sister, Judi and husband, Michael Mitiguy, of Colchester; uncle, Bob Foley of Burlington; brothers-in-law, Fred Duncan and wife, Dale, of Prescott, Ontario, and Colin Taylor and wife, Barbara, of Ottawa, Ontario; sister-in-law, Mary Taylor of Edmonton, Alberta; and many nephews, nieces, cousins and many friends. He was predeceased by his parents, Dewey and Margaret Sholan. The family would like to thank Dr. Dennis Sanders of VCCM and his staff for the great care he received from them. We cannot express enough our gratitude and respect for the skilled and compassionate professionals at the Vermont Respite House, as well as their many dedicated volunteers. As per his wishes, there will be no public calling hours or services. A gathering for family and friends will be held at a later date. Arrangements in the care of Stephen C. Gregory & Son, Shelburne. Contributions in his memory may be made to The Vermont Respite House, 99 Allen Brook Lane, Williston, VT 05495, or to The Franklin County Humane Society, 30 Sunset Meadows, St. Albans, VT 05478.
