Chuck loved to set up a gota station at the ARRL field day events. He would break those pileups with the off itu phonetics kilowatt 4 cookiemonster. I saw him OPERATE several times with this technique. It was that grin he had afterwards that was uplifting. He was a Ham that was enjoyed with helping others get involved in ham radio. Very soft spoken and kind to all. I have never seen a man love his daughter anymore than Chuck did. What a great dad he must have been. I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Chuck but a few short years. Thank You Chuck for your kindness to me. I for one will remember you Sir as the kind of Elmer that anyone would love to have.
