Chuck was active with Gillett Lions Club, Gillett Civic Club and Gillett Sno-Riders. In his retirement years he volunteered for the cleaning and cooking for the Gillett Lions Fair Food Stand. Chuck was very active with his church, St. John’s Riverside Lutheran Church putting up Christmas trees, lawn care, Board of Finance and cooking chicken booyah for fundraisers. Chuck also enjoyed helping local businesses set up accounting spreadsheets.
Chuck absolutely loved his Canadian fishing trips for over 40 years with family and friends. His biggest delight was when his grandchildren joined him on the fishing trips. His grandson kept the tradition alive and joined him for 20 years and his great granddaughter went 4 years, that made Chuck so very proud! He fished locally at Kelly Lake 3 to 4 days a week as a favorite past time. White Potato Lake holds a special spot with time spent at the family cottage. Chuck hunted whitetail deer all his life from Gillett to Hurley and was an avid gun collector.

To Nanette and family; So sorry for your loss, please know that Floyd and I are sending hugs and prayers to all of you during this difficult time.
Jim, me and our daughters all send our deepest sympathies. Chuck was very special. Jim, especially, feels very bad and wishes that he would have gotten to take him musky fishing one last time, and is thankful for the time he had working with him. Chuck and Nanette took good care of Kalea when she was a baby, and they were a great source of support when Ashley had her surgeries. In fact they were responsible for helping us make our final decision to go to Johns Hopkins because as they both said, “Family comes first.” and we are so thankful for their encouragement in making that decision as it made ALL the difference. I enjoyed hearing Chuck him while he worked at school. Chuck had a heart of gold and will be missed.
So sorry for your loss.
