I worked with Chuck at the UW Madison – he was a good friend and colleague. I hope his family the very best during this sad, sad time
We are so sad about the loss of our friend Chuck. We have known him for almost two decades and appreciated his visits with us in Germany. We miss him.
We are so sorry to learn about Chuck’s death. May we join you in celebrating his life. We pray God will hold you close in the days ahead, and we trust His love will sustain you.

I was very sad to hear of Chuck’s death. We were friends from high school and grew up playing baseball (he was very good and also very funny) and basketball together at Lincoln High School and it was great that he was able to go on and do such great things with his life. For his family I would say be comforted knowing he is now safe in the hands of God and forever with you in your lives. My prayers are for you in this difficult time. Jim DeMark, Orlando Fl
Chuck and I dated for a few months back in 2008. What a very sweet and endearing man he was. He will surely missed by all who knew him.
