I have so many good memories with you Uncle Chuck. When we would go up to cabins with the family and I would come up and visit. You were always so great to me and made sure I felt safe and at home. You were like a dad I never had. I love you and will miss you dearly Uncle Chuck. I know you're up in heaven right now watching over. ❤

Chuck was my uncle and he was there more for me than my own father. I have so many wonderful memories from my childhood with this amazing, selfless, funny and an extraordinary person. Every fall him and Karen and my cousins would come up to the smoky mountains to rent a cabin just to visit us. I'm so glad to have known him and this sudden loss has impacted me greatly and has for others close to him. Reading these

My sincere condolences to the family. Charles was a great guy, always had a smile on his face, no matter the circumstance. He was the nicest & the most genuine man I ever met. He made his customers feel very welcomed in Savannah every time we visited Vopak. May you have eternal peace.

Karen was my Maid of Honor at my wedding.  This is a picture taken of them at the reception.  9/4/92

I feel like we all group together. Chuck (as we called him then) and Karen and I were often together either hanging out in our Senior lounge or on the weekends. We had great parties at Chuck's as his mother was a terrific hostess. I even had my bridal shower in their family room. I felt as welcome in Chuck's home as I did my own. Chuck was always supportive of Karen and I know he loved her without question

Although his stature dominated the room, his huge heart and humble demeanor made everyone around him feel important and much appreciated. He was always willing to listen and allow people to learn and grow. He was very instrumental in growing my career to wait it is today. Thoroughly enjoyed the time we worked together and the patience he showed with me!

Charles was a great guy who truly cared about others. I really enjoyed working with him and considered him a mentor and a friend. He was one of the nicest people I've ever known and had a great sense of humor. I remember one time we were walking around the terminal preparing for an audit and Charles said cue the deer as if to portray the natural beauty of the site. You may have had to be there but it

Charles trusted me with a great opportunity early in my career. He allowed an inexperienced engineer trainee to travel across the country and work with the Vopak Savannah team for 6 months. This ended up being a great opportunity to meet and learn from some wonderful people, and formed the foundation of core values that are still with me today.

I'll never forget riding back from Wilmington, NC with Charles while a US Soccer World Cup game was playing. We

Karen, Chase and Ben,

My deepest condolences to all of you in the loss of Charles. He was without a doubt one of the kindest people I have even known. Charles was one of the easiest people I have every had the pleasure of working with. Charles always made you feel at ease and that your opinion and thoughts mattered.

We have so many happy family memories of Chuck. We have a photo of my siblings, me and Jeanie when we were all kids, and Chuck, as a baby, hanging on our wall.

He was good, responsible and kind person. He made the world a better place to be.

Our hearts are heavy.

For Karen, Chase, and Ben

I didn't know Charles well. I only met him a handful of times, but I remember him vividly. Not just because I felt I knew him through Karen's stories, or because he was tall and handsome, and the way he and Karen looked at each other when standing side by side was wonderful and a privilege to witness...those are all true, but I remember him so clearly because he had a presence you don't often see.
