To Chuckies Family
Sorry to hear about your loss. Haven't seen him in years and even though we worked in the same field we always talked about Golf or the GB Packers not the snack business.
God Bless you my friend.

I have fond, happy memories of working with Chuckie at Stateline Potatoe Chip about 45 years ago! He was such a nice, respectful, upstanding guy! Our group at work had some very fun times and many laughs....I can still see Chuckie's smile & hear his would light up the room!

Sending my sincere sympathy.

To the family of Chuckie, We ran head to head against each other in the North End of Springfield, I was with Frito-Lay and of course Chuckie was with Wise, we battled it out but always had a great respect for each other. Nothing but fond memories. Ralph Mastrangelo

Dear Marjorie,
I am so sorry to read this. My God.
I saw Charles and met his Mom & Brother last month at Russ's restaurant.
May he find peace.
May you hold onto the many memories you had together with Charlie.
We used to meet at the clinic on Ashley West Side.
My wife Cynthia passed in Dec.
It was so nice for us to see Charles and you with his smiling face all the time there.
Charlie was a very positive man.
God bless you and your family.
Memories are all we have now.

We plotted many a strategy over 30 years , service provider , mentor along the way ,mutually , we brought hundreds of people into each other's lives. I observed him nose to nose with each of his loved ones , both good and bad , me included , Allied , daily , for so many years , I learned he could be a fair , well - balanced , giving man . Whether, five figure weeks out of a cargo van , over the inner city , prospective buyer's pocket length or busting a strike , he could count on me. Our business , legal and finance issues satisfactory , through 32 years ,sometimes Chuck would say it's a good time to buy his favorite muffin and coffee for him , ya just did it .

Holly , Lee, Dean and family: Words cannot express how sorry we are to to lose a great friend . We will miss that "look" on Chuck's face after a completely hysterical moment. Only Chuck would fish a golf ball out of a pond with a crocodile close by ! So many laughs. Your dad was a great husband and father and role model through the years. XXOO

Dear Holly and family. I was deeply saddened by Chuck's passing. I was sitting next to him in dialysis and we were talking about the weather. He asked me how much snow we were getting right before he had to be brought to the hospital. I always enjoyed his company here and I worked in the grocery business for many years. We had that in common. I will miss him very much. He was a very kind person and was a part of making the dialysis center a better place for me.
