Chuck was an amazing, caring man who touched everyone he met. He was diagnosed with periosteal osteosarcoma in 1997 and had limb sparing surgery with 6 months of chemotherapy only for the cancer to return one year later. His leg was then amputated, however, that never stopped Chuck from anything and only made him stronger.
In May 2013, the sarcoma came back with a vengeance that he could not conquer. Chuck passed away peacefully on July 17, 2013 and is now an amazing angel watching over all of us with a big smile. He fought hard to the very end.
I ask that everyone take a moment to celebrate Chuck’s life and always remember his smile and the twinkle in his eyes.
