I talked to Chuck just a week ago, on the radio, and he sounded well and fiesty as usual. I am extremely sorry to hear of this loss to the world. I can reiterate what the club has said about being one of the nicer people on this Earth, I met with Chuck numeous times in Swanton to talk about anything and everything radio, and it was always a pleasure. When no one else seemed to be around, he would go out of his way to reply to me, to prove SOMEONE was listening... Eternal 73, my friend...
