  4. Uncle Chuck “Papa” was a shining star in our lives and we always loved his shine. He will be remembered beyond any kisses and shown to be truly missed. Papa who we knew, Papa who we loved, Papa Chuck grew to us. Our Uncle that we loved, Papa always knew how to be one of us. Our Uncle was the best beyond any of the rest. He was the best Uncle and friend to the end. Our Lord please bless Uncle Chuck because we all are a real mess and will never forget. Savior, Jesus Christ, we are sorry so please take him and dismiss any futile sins. Lord we pray. Lord please take Uncle Chuck to your arms. Papa would always walk, talk and give a stalk as he should because he could. We wish he still would wonder around us but know his spirit will. We will miss all his visits with meal packs of quarter snack bags. We love you always and forever Uncle Chuck. Until we meet again, we will never forget.

    Love Always,

    Mike, Rose & Jason

  7. Our hearts and prayers go out to Chuck’s family in their loss of this wonderful guy. Although he and Pam have been gone from CA for quite a few years, we all remember his friendliness and love of laughter. Part of the “mustache group” in our Bible study, he had quite the bushy upper lip as I remember. Heaven just received a fantastic addition!

  8. Some of my best childhood memories was visiting Auntie Pam and Uncle Chuck. He was always funny. He was always there when a hug was needed, or a soda to be opened.
    He will always be in my heart.
    Love and prayers for my Auntie Pam and the family 🙏♥️
