Before I left Pennsylvania in 2004, I got to know Chuck through his wife's (Joan) Brother, Russell D. Unangst (who passed away in March. 2004) for many, many years his wife used to call me "F.F." which was a real term of endearment everyone loved and her Daughter Joann I am sure she remembers. I am sure Chuck, Joan, Russell and Ella (Joan and Russ's Mom) are raising cane wherever they are now. I got to know Chuck during the family holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving and a great time was had by everyone all the time. Chuck was a great man, father husband & friend who will be greatly missed by all. I have great Memories of the Families gathering and have missed them not being there with them all but they are always on my mind. I will miss you a lot and loved you too!! "The Cuban Friend -John”

My heart and prayers go out to Joann and her family. I never had the pleasure of meeting Big Papa, but through Joann's stories and pictures I feel as if I have known this wonderful gentleman forever and to me he is just like family. With every picture and with every story about this one in a million man my heart was touched and i got a smile on my face. When I heard of his passing I sat and cried at the loss of such a great man. They truly do not make them like him anymore. To Joann, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I can only thank you for sharing your Dad with all of us. He has so many many friends that he has never met.

I only knew Chuck for 3/4 years. But in that time I grew to love and respect him. Chuck always had a smile on his face and not a harsh word for anyone. he surely will be missed by all NWJHOG members. May he RIP with all his past family members and friends.
