I am so sorry to hear of Dr. Chuck's passing. I was a medical resident and spent 6 rewarding weeks with him in 1998. He was generous in his teaching and hospitality. I was on the phone this morning with a 73 year old patient here in the Charlotte, NC area who happened to mention that he saw an osteopath in Norwalk, OH when he was in his 20's and mentioned Dr. Resseger, and recalled what an excellent physician he was. I know he will be missed by many. God bless.

I am so shocked and so sorry to hear about Chuck. It was on my heart recently to write him a letter of thanks for all of his great doctoring service to me and to my family and I did not do it. I trust he knows! My heart goes out to you all. What a great husband, father, doctor, friend and evangelist he was here on earth. May the love of our Heavenly Father wrap around your hearts and fill you with peace that only He can give.
