Long ago I was dropped off to visit with Uncle Chuck and Aunt Doris in some small Ohio town, I was probably there to work, however, I think I my earning were only used to support my candy apples and fair fries addiction. My best memory was getting to sleep on the sofa in the trailer, I thought it was so fancy that the sofa bay actually expanded to make the trailer bigger. I loved wrestling around with his big German Shepard, Frits and was always looking forward to his next trip back to our corner of the state. I will miss him and the lost opportunity I had over the years to build our relationship.

Brendan, you made me laugh about your fair food "addiction--thanks so much! Aunt Carol

My most vivid memory of my Uncle Chuck has stuck with me since I was very little. I thought it was so cool being related to someone who got to work at a carnival and run the games. I got to play balloon darts a lot and I even won a mirror with the Journey “Escape” album cover on it. I can’t remember exactly, but I’m guessing I didn’t hit enough balloons and he made sure I “won” anyway. To this day, I still make balloon darts my first stop whenever I take my kids to a carnival and I think of him. He made a life of making sure the things that make people happy keep working . How can you top that? Rest in peace, Uncle Chuck.

Sean, loved your memory. So now, Delaney & Celestina have that connection to Uncle Chuck!

There were no children- I am certain- who had more stuffed animals than we did! Every time Uncle Chuck came near, we left with a stuffed animal. I particularly remember this very large Tweety Bird (and my brother’s Tasmanian Devil) that lived on my bed for years.
I also remember that Uncle Chuck and Aunt Doris gave me my very first “job” – paid with real money – for harder work than I had imagined (it was probably harder for them too – as I know Uncle Chuck had to intervene several times when kids were stealing items without me knowing!) While these memories are fun and funny – the ones that are more important for me are more hazy recollections of acts and words from someone who was gentler in spirit than it appeared, who was quietly funny, who was generous, who was committed. I love seeing pictures that I can pick out resemblances in – but more appreciate knowing there are connections to this good soul for my family and myself. Much love to Uncle Chuck and to all those feeling his loss– Alysia Courtot Herzog

Beautiful! Love this post, Alysia. Miss you!

Such a wonderful post, Alysia--thank you! Your Dad & Uncle Chuck had a special relationship--physically distant but "close" in other ways. I really enjoyed your descriptions of Chuck in your last sentences--they are spot-on. Love to you & all your family. Aunt Carol
