I am so sorry to hear of Chuck's death. I remember him fondly. He was one of my first serious boyfriends and was funny, kind and thoughtful. I enjoyed going on walks with him and spending time at the youth center in a nearby church building while we were dating. He was always a gentleman and I will remember him for that as well as for his sense of humor. I hope his memory eases your pain and brings you some comfort. Take care and God bless you always.
Chuck and I first met in Kindergarten at Garfield School in Faribault. My earliest memory is that I wanted to go to the Shrine Circus with the class and Chucks Mom was a chaperone. The only way I could go was to sit with Chuck and his Mom as my Mom was sure I would get lost. I remember it was fun. Chuck was a good friend in those early years. We were always put together for school activities. One Halloween I believe he was a clown and I was a witch. Many fond memories of Chuck. My condolences to his family. He will be missed.
I will always remember Chuck's sense of humor during Junior High and High School. My thoughts and prayers go out to Charlie's family and friends.
I haven't been in touch with Chuck for over 20 years, but he was a great guy. I remember camping in his back yard when we were in Jr High. I don't think his mom would have let go any further than that on our first expedition. Our attempts to cook breakfast were a disaster, but his mom took pity on us and made something for us. After high school I would visit him and Jenny up in the cities and have way too good of a time. I can't believe I actually wore that disco suit in public. Of course he was the camera guy so we can't see what he was wearing. We tried camping again out at the county park north of town on the river in the early 80s. He showed me how you could lift out one of the posts in the ground to prevent vehicles from driving through. We were able to drive my pickup with all our camping gear down the trails and select a beautiful site without packing all that stuff in on our backs. His dad had a bottle opener mounted by the back door with a coffee can hung on a nail about a foot lower to catch the bottle caps. I've mounted a bottle opener in every house I've owned even tho the bottles are twist off now. You left too soon Chuck. Tom Harper Detroit Lakes, MN
I will miss Chuck's sense of humor! He will be missed. I am sorry for all of his friends and family as they grieve his loss.
I'm so sorry to hear about Chuck's death, I went to school with him as well, but have not seen for for a long time. I pray for peace within you in his memories. God's Blessings
Chuck was one of my oldest friends, although I had not been in touch with him for a long time. We used to spend lots of time together when we were kids through high school. We would walk to the Sr. High school in the mornings and smoke our cigarettes the whole way! We were both American Legion kids, and spent lots of time there, especially when we got the SAL Squadron started. I'm sorry I did not get in touch with Chuck sooner, before this illness happened. I will think of him often. David Fiebiger
Although we have never met, I wanted to offer my deepest sympathies. You can turn to the Holy Scriptures for help. For Psalms 34:18 assures us that God is near to those broken at heart and saves those crushed in spirit. He will certainly comfort your heart.
Chuck will be missed, he was a friend, with only the type of sense of humor he could have. I will miss him Sue
