I was saddened to hear of Chuck's passing. He as a hero of mine who my wife and I had named our first son after. We met at Oregon where I was basketball manager and he showed up as a freshman. He quickly showed that he was the best leader on the floor of any player we had seen. Chuck worked for my dad during the summers and he played AAU ball for Walt Spitznagel aand myself with Claudias after he returned to Portland from the Denver DC Truckers. We kept in contact afterwards and I had talked to him maybe 2 months ago from his home around Sacramento. As a result it was quite a shock to hear of his passing. Gary
