Chuck was the best man at my wedding and I was at Sue and his wedding in Wilmington. A close friend thru high school sharing many hours on the basketball court and on double dates many times. He always made life a wonderful event and was a great friend even when the beer influenced him to say that I was a ""gentleman and a scholar" when I drove on our nights around Decatur. Since I had my first beer after my 21st birthday, he appreciated my taking the wheel. Though miles have separated us in later life, I still feel a deep loss . May time help his family and Sue get thru this rough time. My prayers are with all of you.

Chuck & I were good friends in Jr High & High School. I remember the great times we had playing church league basketball. Rest in peace my friend.

Met Chuck in Florida, became one of my best friends. Will miss the beers and the Packer games at Peanuts Bar. Also remember the all nighter when Bush beat Kerry...many drinks and high fives that night. St. Vincent and Curly have another great fan with them.

I knew Chuck Bach most of my Jr. High and High school years. We had a lot of fun during those years. Jerry L. Lambert, Esq. Flossmoor, and Indio Ca.

Peg and I send their deepest condolences. It has been a few years since we last saw Chuck. Our times together were always a lot of fun and as we grew older a great chance to share the stories of the large group of cousins that grew up together. Our thoughts are definitely with him and his family. Don & Peg

I am one of the Bach Cousins and am so sorry to hear of Chuck's passing. I would like to share a memory.
At one of our family reunions in Forrest IL, Chuck brought each of the cousins and spouses T-Shirts with picture of Johann Sebastian Bach on them, and the date of the reunion. There must have been 100 of us at that reunion. Since then, not a reunion has gone by without several of us asking about Chuck. And that is usually followed by someone bringing up the fun t-shirts and a discussion on how many of us have kept them through the years. Chuck was very well loved by our big family. May he rest in Peace.

To the Bach family, my deepest sympathies for your loss, my prayers are with you all. I have such fond memories of Chuck. I got to know him very well back in the good old days when I worked for him and always loved being around him. Just a wonderful person. I'm blessed to have known him. May he rest in peace.

My sincerest condolences to your family during this time of grief. Please find comfort in the verses at Jeremiah 29:11-13

To the entire Bach family, our deepest sympathy. We've lost a great husband, father, and friend. I've known Chuck pretty much my whole life and I'm sure he found the nearest lake and sitting in a pontoon with a cold one smiling down on us.
You will be missed.
