Chuck spent every moment he could with his family. Even though he was a regional truck driver, he was all about snow. He cherished opportunities to make butterflies in his kid’s stomachs when in the car with their Daddy. He enjoyed working on the cars of friends and family. Chuck had a big heart and loved to drop everything to help others. He was an avid fisherman especially going with his buddy, Shannen. He also enjoyed going on boat rides with his friend, Dennis. He was a big collector of movies. Chuck was quite good at helping his wife get out of situations with her semi. He was her knight in shining armor. His wife and kids are going to miss him tremendously. He knew how to make them laugh and have fun, but most importantly, they knew they were loved unconditionally and immensely. He was a skilled cook and enjoyed watching YouTube to find new recipes and instructional videos. His family will greatly miss his pepper steaks and his homemade chili. Chuck loved country music, from the old to the new, he had thousands of county music CD’s. He loved to mess with his buddy, Ray, by driving on the front lawn.
