Chuck was devoted to his family and worked hard to ensure that he provided the best life possible for them. He was a quiet and reserved man who didn’t say much but when he did it was usually funny and rich with wisdom and humor. Chuck was a man of faith and a long-time member of the Church of Christ both in Pearland and at the Westside congregation in Alvin. He faithfully served the Pearland congregation as a deacon for 15 years. In his spare time, Chuck volunteered as an EMT for Pearland EMS back in the 1980’s when the EMS was a volunteer department.

Chuck was a kind, patient and gentle man who loved God and his family. He was a loving father and husband, a brother in Christ and a great friend to those fortunate enough to know him.
