    It saddens our hearts to hear Charles passed away. He was a pleasure to work with on his feed orders and the love for his animals. Those of us at Munson Lakes Nutrition would like to send our heartfelt condolences to the family.

    I am so sorry for losing Chuck. Although we were not friends in high school, when passing by in hallways, Chuck was always smiling and just a nice, nice guy. I am sorry I cannot attend, but will mentally attend his service. Rest in peace, Chuckie.

    He was a great teacher, I have many fond memories of him in AP Calculus. He was funny, super smart, and made the best burger I’ve ever had.

    We are so sorry for your loss. He’ll be in the angel choir praising God, I’m sure, but will be sorely missed here. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
