Condolence: Yvonne and Collin, I am praying for you. May GOD bless you.

My heart has been so sad since I received the news.
I met Chuck when I worked at WJZY-TV. I still remember the first Christmas commercial I did for the station. It took a million takes because I had a difficult time completing it in 30 seconds. I remember how patient Chuck was each time he would say "let's try it again". That was 28 years ago and I still have that commercial today. Chuck was my dear friend and brother. He was a wonderful man with a kind heart. Chuck loved the LORD. He loved his wife and family. I will truly miss him.

Condolence: Chuck was a dear friend and will be missed tremendously. I'll never forget how he would always send me a text message each holiday wishing me Happy Holiday, Merry Christmas, etc. He was very thoughtful.

He was a joy to work with and an excellent director. He always wanted to do his best in getting the message of Christ out to everyone that was watching. He was an inspiration to us all!

He will be missed and never forgotten!

Condolence: Yvonne & Collin,
You are in my prayers in this time of loss.
I enjoyed working with Chuck and how he worked with all of us to put on the best production possible for all the folks watching.
He had lots of patience with the people learning or when a mistake was made, he helped us all to be better at our "jobs".
Going to miss him.

Condolence: Chuck began volunteering with Central's video crew when the tragedy of 911 happened. Whether running camera or being the best director ever our crew loved him and applauded every time in walked in the production booth. His skill and timing was awesome and his kindness in working with our crew whether they were video professionals or just beginning was a skill all television directors should learn. Until the last day or so his passing was difficult to comprehend. Then I got to thinking about a "what if?"

This world is getting more more violent and godless. Jesus is coming soon. His return will be the biggest, the most dramatic, and the most incredible production ever. "What if" Jesus called Chuck home because He needs him to help direct the video for Christ's soon return? For sure, Chuck would know that the close up shot should be on Jesus.
