    Mary, sorry to hear about Chuck. He always lit up a room wherever he was. A!ways enjoyed seeing him play in our Donaldson golf outings. Always had a blast with him at the Moose pitching horseshoes and drinking a few beers during summers. His great smi!e and personality will be missed by many Moose and Eag!es members. Chuck will be in our prayers. He is now in a better pain free place for eternity. Again, Mary, sorry for loss, your friends Tim and Cindy Kuzmicz

    My heart is saddened to have learned of the passing of my good old friend Chuck. I worked many years with Chuck at then Zeneca now DSM. During those many years we became good buds. We had a lot of things in common. Softball, golf, sports teams a bottle of beer or two. We spent a lot of time together at his favorite golf course the Deer Tracks. We were equally matched and had fun making fun of each others lack of ability. I am selfishly saddened in that it was just last week that I thought of Chuck and wanted to find out how I could visit him as I knew he he was ill. Chuck had a good sense of humor and I enjoyed our friendship and our working relationship. As chuck might have said – I will miss that “Ole Dog Beater”.
