I worked for many years with Chuck at McGill. As someone said, he was one of the good guys. He lived down the street from me on Eisenhower. I will never forget having a garage sale the summer after my parents died. Betty came by the shop, and your dad came by to check on me. He was always kind. When I ran into him around town, he always gave me a smile and a hug. -Karen Tognetti
