Not sure what to say?

Cousin Chuck, being Dad's much younger cousin I remember your college years and your very musical family - how blessed you all were, I remember thinking! Most recently for me, I remember your poignant mini-sermon to all of our much younger cousins at Gramma (Richards) Rake's funeral - you spoke with such boldness and passion! How proud I was to call you my elder cousin! How blessed I know you've been now to hear our Heavenly Father's words, "Well done!" and to be reunited with so...

What a wonderful man and a great family man

So sorry to hear of Chuck's passing. I really enjoyed playing with him Jin the Winds & the Grand Haven band. Always had good conversations with him & am glad I saw & talked with him when his daughter brought him to a Winds rehearsal a while back. He will be missed.

So sorry Al. Sending hugs and prayers to your family.

I loved Chuck's positive attitude in all he did. He was a joy in the WINDS and I shall always remember him fondly. Ginger Austin

Charlie was a part of my daily life as a child growing up in Muskegon. He was my broher's friend and Carol was my fiend. My brother Tom and Charlie both played trombone. We were all in band together at Angell School and Muskegon High School. We would come and go easily between each others homes. We all went to Indiana when Charlie got married. Wonderful memories of Charlie and that time in our lives.

Carol, and family of Chuck, So sorry to hear of Chucks passing. I knew Chuck best, from Calvary Church. He loved people, and always took time to talk and listen to others. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this very sad time in your lives. Mary Lou Kramer
