Chuck never met a stranger. Folks he met very rapidly became fast friends. He was a gifted machinist who could fix anything. He also was a gifted musician who was always ready to sing a song to any audience. At dances when he was younger, he would frequently talk the band into letting him sing a song or three…or four. His voice was one of the best “crooner” sounds around. Singing songs from the big band era, he truly was a gifted entertainer who impressed all who had the good fortune to hear him.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in his name to one’s favored charity. Condolences may be offered to clementswilcoxburnet.com.
