My dear Jan, and your family. I remember Chuck as being so kind, and when Richard and I visited your home in South Fork, how excited he was that we like antiques! He was a special person. Laurie

Dear Jan and Family:
I knew Chuck to be a quiet, kind and gentle man. May God bless his soul. He is an angel in his heavenly home watching over you now throughout your lifetime.
May God comfort you with His everlasting love in strength and courage and to help you move on remembering his legacy and beautiful memories of so many years.
Blessings to my sorority sister, Jan, and her beautiful family!
I want to remember Chuck's sense of humor. I first met Chuck when I was hired by the ASU Chemistry Department in 1968, right out of the Army. He struck me as a little rough but I soon discovered that was just the exterior. Before long we were telling each other jokes and stories. There are too many to recount and most are of the "you had to be there" type, so I won't even try. He taught me quite a bit about minerals, polishing techniques and so much more....such as don't call him a rock collector, he's a mineral collector. Hummph.
So, as Bob Hope used to say....Thanks for the memories!
My deepest condolences to Chuck's family. You're part of my memories too.\
My boyfriend said Chuck made the best grilledsteaks he ever had.
Chuck was like a second father to nme. I used to hang around at his house all thr time. One day he gave as precious gift. He had mde me a knife and leather sheath with a loop to put it on a belt. I treasure that knife and all the memories. Be at pece , Chuck, you are so loved and are missed deeply. Now the pita knee won't bother youMay all who loved him finfd.strenth and peace tio get through the coming days.
Dear Jan & Family,
I'm so sorry to hear of Chuck's passing. Jan and Chuck have always treated me and loved me like their own family. I was SO blessed to sing in the choir with Jan at North Scottsdale UMC and to become friends with both her and Chuck. Jan helped me learn more about quilting, sewing and cross stitch. One year, Chuck made me the most beautiful gift, a handmade wooden cross-stitch frame and lap mount. He and Jan were always so generous and thoughtful towards me. I will always treasure Chuck's kindness towards me and think of him often.
May God's peace be with you all during your time of grief and celebration. I am confident he's smiling and proud of the legacy he left behind. My prayers are with you all!
My love to you all & especially Jan,
April (Gant) Martinez
Dear Jan and family. Gary and I have been so blessed to have been friends with you and Chuck. We loved the summers that we stayed in your driveway in South Fork and looked at the Rio Grande, enjoyed the birds and other animals (even the bear the came to the porch one evening and drained the hummingbird feeder). You took us places to show us the beauty and history of the area, including our trips to Creede. We enjoyed our Tucson Gem show. So many memories, all good.
