As a young man, he enlisted in the United States Navy where he served 21 years until his retirement.  While in the Navy, he served tours in both Vietnam and Korea.  After he retired from the Navy, he went to work for Natural Gas Pipeline where he also retired.  Chuck loved to fish and keep a very big garden. He had two mottos he stood by the first was “if you borrow something, you take it back like you got it, if not better. The second one was “if you put something back where you got it, you’ll be able to find it the next time you need it.” He was famous for saying both.  Chuck will be deeply missed.
