Not sure what to say?

Unfortunately, I only learned of this tragic loss today, when searching through some old e-mails from another Navigator. Chuck flew as my Navigator many times while we were stationed at Sewart AFB in Smyrna, Tenn. Chuck was a great person and Navigator. I pray the Good Lord is looking after him. May he Rest in Peace.

Chuck and I spent six months at Itazuke AB, Japan, as USAF navigators 1956-57, where we had occasion to sing "In the Evening by the Moonlight," a duet that impressed our night-club cohorts enough to rate their requests to sing it again, and again, and again. Chuck made us sound like professionals.

Dear Family: I am an Aquino cousin; my dad Lou was Chuck's first cousin. Spoke to their cousin and Theresa's godmother Rose Cafiero last night to inform her. The rest of the second cousins have also been informed. We are spread out from NJ to Florida. Everyone has found memories of Chuck.
May he rest in peace in the embrace of God, and Uncle Joe and Aunt Jo.

Our heartfelt sympathy to the family on behalf of the COM department at SUNY Buffalo State

I am sorry for your loss. I remember Chuck when he would volunteer at the Lighthouse years ago. I also will remember him reading his book in the sun at the end of the beach ramp. I am so sorry for your loss

Our Prayers to the Family

I knew Dr. Aquino and his family when they lived in Williamsville, NY. I was actually very good friends with his daughter, Diane. I spent a great deal of my childhood at his house (we were almost neighbors)and it was always such a pleasure to be with him and his family. Dr. Aquino was a lot of fun and always made me laugh!!
I send his family my sincere sympathies at his passing and my thoughts and prayers are with them at this most difficult time.

Farewell Professor!
