Chuck and Connie, Sorry for the belated condolenses but news trickles slowly to Connecticut it seems. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Dear Family, I remember Chuck from when I was a little girl. He was a great person and loved to tease and scare us little girls! Deppest sympathy Nancy (Evelyn Cox’s sister)
Lenna,Char & Charlie…
My condolence to your families.Big Chuck will certainly be missed.I am so honored to have the friends and the parents of my friends as I was growing up.We learned much from our parents,but when you have great friends…who have “GREAT PARENTS”…. it kind of seems unfair to have all that unconditional love that we had.They have kept us in check and on the proper road of living life…therefor we have all been blessed! If I had to do this life of mine all over…..I would do it exactly the way it has been done!!! FOREVER MISSED,BUT FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS….The Arnold Family will always have a special place in my Heart,thank-you for sharing that Love,I am so Honored to have been part of all your lives! Stevie Storts and Family
Mrs. Arnold, Charlene and family, Chuck, Connie and “IV”, We are truly sorry for your loss and at the same time happy for the celebration of his life. I am truly appreciative of the stories of the times with my parents, that they had shared, and the frienship that we had developed, as short lived as it was. I am humbled to have been a part of his life. He always lead me to believe he was glad to see me and he always had a story for me to cherish. I think he was saving them for me. He is truly one of those people who leaves a hole in one’s life when they are gone. God Bless, Mary, Kayla and Brian
My condolences to the family of Chuck. May god bless you and shine his light upon you in this very hard time. Mary Hatton

We are very sorry to hear about your loss. You will be in our thoughts.. Take Care.
I WORKED WITH CHUCK FOR OVER 30 YEARS AND HE ALWAYS MADE MY DAY BETTER BECAUSE HE MADE ME LAUGH. HE WILL BE MISSED BY HIS FAMILY AND HIS FRIENDS..GOD BLESS
Big PaPa will be greatly missed by so many people. Jim has gotten so many laughes from other people with his “Pride and Joy” and “my card” he got from Chuck. Whenever Jim pulls it out to show someone, we will remember him, We are so sorry for you loss. Jim and MaryAnn Grant
