    Marion and family, I am so sorry for the loss of your husband of 55 years. I am so glad I called and talked with you and Chuck earlier. My father so enjoyed his visit to Minnesota where he and Chuck shared so much – before my father’s passing. God Bless you and your family as you walk this new path of grief.
    Love and prayers, Toni and Don Dooley

    I worked with Chuck as an admin. in the Engineering Dept. at Onan and he was a great guy to work with — very funny, helpful and cordial and made the workplace a much better place to work. Everyone admired Chuck very much. My sincere sympathies to Chuck and his family. As ever, Char

    Dear Marion and family:

    I was one of Chuck’s co-workers at Onan Corporation, and I wish to express my condolences to you. Those of us who had contact with Chuck at work remember him as a very friendly person with an admirable sense of humor.
    He will certainly be missed.

    I wish to express my sincere sympathy to you, and to Chuck’s entire family.
