Chuck, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and brother had a blessed life. He joined the U.S. Navy with his brother Andy and served on the USS Ruby.

Irene and Chuck had four daughters and settled in Monessen where Chuck built their family home with his own hands. As a mechanic at Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel in Monessen, Chuck put his love of cars and ability to fix anything to good use.

So very sorry to hear about your Dad Terri. By the way, you resemble him a lot! I loved hearing your stories about him. With what is written about him in his obituary, he had a fulfilling life & was a fun loving person, you can see it in his smile! I know you and your family will miss him but I do believe you will see him again! Blessings to all of you!

Though it may seem difficult, smile. : ) For you are part of his legacy and part of him lives on through you. As you grieve, look at old pictures, laugh at funny stories, dwell not long in the dark sorrow of parting, but rise ever more into the light of his life and love that you now carry forward.
Blessings to all who knew and loved him.
