"Chuck was a man who couldn't waste time sitting still and lived every minute. Always a devoted dad, he loved to coach his boys. He was the kind of coach we all want our children to have. He loved to spend time with his sons and grandchildren and wanted to teach them everything he knew. Chuck will be remembered for so much; his pranks and jokes, his beautiful yard he so loved to care for, his love for golf and entertaining. As much as anything else, he will certainly be remembered for dancing with the love of his life, Betsy."
