I am very sorry to hear about Chuck. I jumped with him back in the 1960s, and he was a regular fixture at the many DZs around Ontario. He then moved to Orange Mass, and it wasnt long after that he had his accident.

I thought about him just two days ago, and wondered how he was.

He was a great guy.
