We were sad to learn of Chuck’s passing. We lived a few houses down from Chuck many years ago. Spent a lot of time at his place playing in the barn or the field where the horses roamed. I hadn’t seen Chuck in many years but by all accounts he was surrounded by loving family and friends. Rest In Peace my friend. Our thought and prayers will be with the family and friends during this difficult time.

Chuck was one amazing man and a true hard worker. I have only known him for 2 or so months but he was one awesome guy to get along with and could carry on a conversation like we all known each other for years. We worked together at America's Auto Auction and he never said no to doing anything nor did he leaving you second guessing. From the time I have known him I learned all he knows is how to work so in a tribute to you we all will try to work as hard as you did. Chuck I will say this we miss you and you will always be in our hearts brother. Please watch over your Auction Tow Truck family, watch over your family and friends. We all love you brother. P.S. Crank down on the throttle on your Harley and let's hear your pipes crack up there in the Heavens brother. Rest In Paradise Chuck
