My deepest sympathy to the entire Van Zeeland family on the loss of your beloved Chuck. I grew up across the street from Chuck and his family and was two years behind him in school. I remember him as a leader at St. John's and a spirited hocky player at Jones Park in Appleton. May you all find comfort in the many happy memories you shared with your brother, husband, father and grandfather.

Dear Sue & Family - Today you have laid your beloved husband and father to his earthly resting place. Our prayer continues that for eternity he live in the everlasting realms with his God and all he loves. Following my sympathy note of yesterday I need to add what I failed to mention then. I write especially to Tracy and Michele. Tracy, I remember you from Turba Photography in DePere. Michele, I know you from your days on stage in the Green Bay and Valley areas. Blessings to both of you as you pursue your careers. May your grief over your dad's dying be overtaken with joy and gratitude for being honored to be his offspring. God's peace to all. Fr. Angelo

I am so sorry to hear about Chuck. I was just up at Legend a few weeks ago and was going to stop in and say hi. I was telling my kids about the fun we had at the volleyball court, how someone was always hanging on the net... How we buried the drums to help keep the net up and tight, tilling the sand so it was just right.. ...Chuck will always be someone that was a big part of my life. He was always there when things were tough with my own dad. He always made me laugh, always had fun, I LOVED hanging out with him at the cottage... Unfortunately, I cant attend the funeral as my daughter gets married on Saturday (7th) in Missouri.... Your whole family has always been very special to me and I miss you all... nearly all my memories growing up center around weekends at your cottage.. I will miss him... Love duke

Sue, I was so sorry to read that Chuck had passed and is now with his Lord. Although I never had the honor of meeting him, after reading his obituary, it is clear that he was a positive force in his community and will be sorely missed. I hope that wonderful memories of your long life together and the love and support of your close family and wealth of friends will sustain you.
