  1. I remember when he started at the Print Room over a B90. He was always cheerful and helpful in all his
    different duties at the lab……you will be sincerely missed……

  2. He was always very helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and very patient with me. Thanks for all your advice and encouragement Chuck. You will be missed…

  3. This is so sad…hard news to hear. You always lit up my day whenever I saw you. This hurts my heart. You will be missed.

  4. Chuck was such an easy going guy with a great sense of humor. He was going to retire later this year, but didn’t get there. I guess you never know when your time is going to come. He will be missed…

  5. I cannot believe you are gone Chuckles! You were here my first day in 1988. You have been a constant unique presence here at the Lab. I will miss you very much. I hope you are hanging out enjoying wherever you are now. Safe trip.
