I first met Chuck, when, at age 13, I was asked to sit with his first wife, Evelyn. I was amazed at his energy and zest for life, as he bounced off to work the 3-11's at Pepsi! Who would know that a couple years later he would meet my Mom's sister, Dorothy, while on vacation in Florida! I cherish those fun, sunny days, and bonfires at night on the beach at my parents motel in 1970-71, where we all joked and laughed and Dorothy and Chuck fell in love. Not a Valentines' Day since has gone by since that I didn't think of the Dorothy & Chuck love story. We will miss our Uncle Chuck. I wish we could all be there to comfort you all. We will all miss his love and laughter, and keep those memories close to our hearts. Love, Delaine & Claude Daoust
