In 1954, he began a 34 year career in financial planning in Canton, OH, moving to Algonac in 1988 and to Baldwin, MI and Marco Island, FL in 2008. A charter member and past president, Chuck served on the Stark County Regional Planning Commission in OH for 32 years. A Paul Harris Fellow, he was past president of the Algonac Rotary Club.
