He shared his later years with two important companions, Gerri Howard who pre-deceased him and Linda Strohm of Lancaster, Ohio. Everyone knew him as a hardworking man who started his work life at a young age, moving wagons with horse teams for a truck farmer in south Columbus. He served his country in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. He returned from his service, went to technical school and spent most of his working years in electrical maintenance at Wonder Bread. In 1972 he moved his family to a mini-farm in Stoutsville, Ohio. There he kept an enormous garden, livestock, dogs and all types of exotic birds and chickens. He passed on his strong love of nature and hunting to his children. Chuck grew up in Columbus, Ohio, attended Corpus Christi Elementary and St. Mary’s High School, where he was a decorated athlete. He continued to maintain friendships with many of his classmates. People could always count on him to lend a hand or help with a repair. Most importantly, he was a good man and a great father.
