Chuck was the first Sports Director I ever met, when I started at CFAX in 1968. He was a delight. He warmed up every room he walked into – he loved his Family and was great to be around.

I liked and admired him, very much.

My sincere condolences to his Family, his many friends and hundreds of co-workers over the years.

Chuck was on the C-FAX team when I moved to Victoria. A nice man. There’s a funny, funny tape around of Chuck’s reports from a World’s Softball Championship game from a small American town. Imagine softball was so popular (“The Bates”) that we carried full coverage! The tape contains Chuck’s live reports. He got the scores wrong….and the innings wrong too. He had the Bates ahead 3-2. The next inning he had them behind 2-0. And so it went throughout the broadcast. Chuck never remembered the total confusion in his reports. We never knew the correct score or who won!

Wondered where Chuck had gone to. Glad I was able to have a long talk with him a few months ago. And another old broadcaster goes to his rewards…… Peace my old friend…..
