Chuck Chandler dies in Victoria
Puget Sound Radio just received the sad news, long time radio man Chuck Chandler has died of cancer in Victoria, British Columbia.
Chuck had cancer and received a prognosis of 6-9 months about a month ago. Last week he broke his leg. Surgery for that went well, but took the last bit of his strength. He died last night peacefully and content. Chuck was 73 years old.
Thanks to Keith James for an update…
