Chuck was so much fun to work with in the seventies when we all worked at the Marriott Win Schuyler's. We all loved Mike and him. I remember Chris and Charlotte being there visiting. He was so proud of all his kids and kind to all of us. I am happy he lived to 85. We all smoked like chimneys back then. We were all blessed to know him and his kids. All the best to all of you.
