Dee, Tammy, Bryon, Olivia and family; My sincerest condolences to all of you on your loss of a very special person. I met Chuck a number of years ago at his recycling place and found out that his sister was married to my cousin, what a hoot. Chuck was a very caring and humble man always a smile on his face when ever you would see him. I know I will miss him as will the many that knew him. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time!!!! Chuck my friend RIP!!!!!
