    Chuck and I were very good friends many years ago as we were both friends of Bill W. We’ve lost touch in recent years and I’m saddened by his passing. I always enjoyed my time with Chaz and we had many laughs and tears shared between us. He will always have a special place in my heart as a loving and special friend.

    I have many wonderful memories with Chaz that will always be a part of me. The world lost a great guy!

    My prayers to your family at this time of loss. I first met Chas (as he was introduced) about 20 years ago with my nephew Ron Fix. He came to Barnesville and joined us for a few family events at my mothers and family events at the Bob and Natalie Fix home in Buffalo. He brought much joy and humor to those events. He was one of those “extended family members” that was part of the family group. To you and your family we Thank You for sharing him with us. Rest in Peace, you will be missed!

    To my sweet Uncle Chuck….
    I can’t believe you are gone. I can’t put into words how much I love you and how sad I am that I won’t get to see you or hear your kind voice or words again. I can only find comfort in knowing that you are in Heaven and I will see you again. You always made me laugh, and I loved every single moment I got to spend with you. I have never met anyone like you. You were always happy, you were always kind, and you were always making me laugh. I was so blessed to have known you and had you in my life. Every single time I talked to you, you would give me a pep talk and make me look at my life and the world in a positive and beautiful way. I LOVE YOU so much Chuck.
    You are my FAVORITE. I am going to try and live my life the way you lived yours. With courage and kindness and a light heart. You are the sweetest person I have ever known. I LOVE YOU. You touched a lot of lives in your life. Thank you for being the most supportive and wonderful uncle and always saying such kind things to me. I am going to miss you so much. I will see you again and when I do I’m going to hug you hard and not let go. You truly were the best.

    My Uncle Chuck was the kindest person. I would give anything for one more conversation with him. I will miss him very much. He touched more lives than he knows and taught me how to be a better person in this life. God knew his name before he was born, and God called him home and I know I will see him again one day. I love you Uncle Chuck, more than you know. Thank you for loving me.

    Today will be a difficult day to say goodbye to my cousin Chuck. He was an incredible man that overcame many hardships and difficulties. Yet, he would be willing to give you the shirt of his back; if you needed it. Praying for the Murray’s and extended families this day. What a blessing he was to so many!

  8. Bo Gowan

    Chuck was the kind of person that made you want to be more loving and caring to everyone. That’s how he was, and how I remember him. Distance kept us from seeing each other very often, but he always brought his sense of humor and huge heart with him when we got to see him. God bless you Chuck.
