I worked not for him but alongside him as a fellow Crain publisher for many years. Chuck was always a class act and always an energetic, informed, excellent publisher. All who knew him will never forget him. His was a life well lived. Fortunately it was a long one. My condolences to his widow, his daughter,his grandchildren and his...

I saw Chuck Lauer as a proud grandparent at piano recitals. I benefited from his generous spirit when he helped pay for veterinarian care for a stray cat I adopted. I saw him as a loving parent to Kathleen, a coworker. What an impressive man he was. He will be missed, but never forgotten.

Sincere condolences to the family of Mr Charles Lauer.
May "the God of all comfort "strengthen you at this time

You are a very, very Pure and Special human being, Chuck. We are all privileged and better for having you in our lives. May God bless you with eternal life, and grant comfort and peace to your family and friends who love you. Doug Peters

Was so sorry to hear of your family's loss. I remember Chuck as one of the pillars of the health care industry. Although I have not seen him in years, I will always remember his impact on me. He will be missed and always remembered.

A proper gentleman from a different era. The extraordinary man that Chuck was should be a life goal for all men. RIP Chuck. We will miss you at Business Network Center.

My deepest sympathy to Chucks; family. A great friend and mentor.
