Dear Aunt Dorothy, As I look at this picture of Uncle Chuck, my heart is is filled with loving childhood memories! The days of when we would all gather as a family for dinner every Sunday at Grandpa & Grandma’s farm! My memory of Uncle Chuck in those days was a kind man with a huge smile and a funny saying for many things in life! Please know Aunt Dorothy that my thoughts are with you, Debbie and Charlotte at what I’m sure is a difficult time and find peace with those beautiful memories and joy in knowing all the family that have greeted him with open arms in heaven! All my love, Kimmy❤️

Dorothy, Debbie, Charlotte & family, we mourn with you. Chuck was your central figure, and he loved you all. He was a part of us too. He was not just our brother -in-law, but our brother. He loved Mom & Dad & they loved him a lot. His gentleness, kindness, intellect, “big heart” , big sense of humor were admirable, but his love for Dottie or “Big D” can’t be forgotten! God followed Chuck in his journey here from humble beginnings in Tennessee, to Illinois, back to Tennessee, then to Alabama & then home to his beloved Tennessee! All including 61 years of a blessed marriage with Dottie! Beautiful & grateful memories I have always & will continue to carry about Chuck thru His Schwin bike (Charlotte ‘s) & the Kilmer Image drawings he taught all of us to draw. I have shared them with my kids & grandkids. We will miss Chuck too, I’ll always remember his tall stance with arms folded, or sitting with arms folded... and oh can’t forget the “toothpick” or whistle! With open arms , I have no doubt God is saying to Chuck ... “welcome good & faithful servant”! Dear God, please say hello to Chuck for us, and thank you for allowing Chuck to be a part of our lives! I love you Dorothy. Thanks to you and Chuck for the memories! I pray for God's comfort & strength for you and family. Love, Diane & Mark

There is one more bright star in the sky and one more angel, and he is called Chuck. The man with the million dollar smile. He will be deeply missed. With heartfelt sympathy to the entire family. Love, Gary and Janet
