My memories of Chuck will live on forever in my heart. Our younger, crazy days laughing and dancing, our children growing up with multiple visits to Pittsburgh throughout the years, his good humor even when the days became difficult, our trips to the candy store (for ice cream). I am thankful for Barbara who made his life comfortable and happy with her love and to Sherry and Lynne for their never ending vigilance. He will be missed and always loved. June

As my Brother, I could not have asked for anyone more caring and thoughtful and willing to help me, if and when needed. I have memories of so many enjoyable times we shared together. He will always be with me. My only regret is we couldn't live closer to each other to enjoy even more good times. I must say, his loving wife gave him more care than anyone could have ever imagined throughout their lives together. His daughters and grand daughters did the same. Charlie lived a charmed life and will always be remembered as a person you could count on. He will be missed and never forgotten. Little Brother BOB..

As a friend of Charlie, I grew up with him in McDonald, PA. I knew him since grade school and he treated me as a younger brother. He was an excellent pattern maker, woodworker and electrician. His wife, Barb, and daughters, Lynne and Sherry and granddaughters were devoted to him. Charlie was always friendly and would do anything possible to help others whenever needed. Rest in peace, Charlie, you will be missed.

I’m so sorry to hear of Chuck’s passing. I have a lot of great memories of Chuck from back in McDonald High School. He was a fun loving guy and loved to laugh. He will be missed by all who knew him. I never met his family, but my sincere condolences go out to you all.
