After graduation, Chuck enlisted in the United States Air Force and was stationed at Dover Air Force Base. One night in 1960, Chuck went to a dance at the YMCA in Wilmington where he met the love of his life, Catherine (Rossi).
Catherine and Chuck were married and would soon move their family to a small farm in Marydel where they raised their four children. Chuck worked for the Coca Cola Company and later Leaseway Transportation. Chuck loved gardening, fishing and hunting, but will best be remembered as a devoted husband, father and friend, and a "gentle giant".
