What can you say about Chuck??? He was a special friend. He had a smile and a laugh you can never froget. He loved people and they loved him -- especially the women!! He loved to gamble - winning sometimes.
Chuck will forever be remembered here at Characters' Saloon and now we have extended our family to include you.

When I met Chuck through my dad, Bud Budding, I was instantly struck by Chuck's contagious smile, warm greeting, sincere mannerism, and humility. I liked Chuck immediately and am happy that I was graced with his company these past couple of years.

I know that Chuck will be missed by everyone who knew him because he was one of those special people who warms your heart just to be in his company.

I first met Mr. Nat when I was in elementary school. His sparkle in his eyes and warm grin made me want to hug him every time I saw him. He embraced life, and has been a great inspiration to me during his recent harder years. I saw his determination and amazing attitude get him up out of bed and back on the road. Bless Him.

Dear Friends of my Dad,

Thank you for enriching his life! He so loved living and experiencing life to the fullest with all of you. He faced everything that life gave him head-on and was determined to compete and win in the game we call life. He won so many times before time ran out and it was "game over."

I know he is bending St. Peter's and God's ears about his family and friends and how proud he is of all of us, and how blessed his life was to know all of you that loved him.

I wouldn't be surprised, if by the time we all get to heaven, Dad has negotiated a good spot for us all!

Thank you again and God bless all of you,

Chuck Nat (Chuck's son)

Chuck and I took many trips together sponsored by "Molly's Angels of Napa Valley to casinos. No doubt about it he loved to gamble and most of the time he came out a winner. He was a good friend and he will be missed.
