Chuck and I attended school together for 12 years. We played football together for 6 years and wrestled together during the same time. I would say we could have been brothers .. next to each other on the offensive and defensive line and one weight class apart in wrestling. Chuck was a good hard strong man .. he will be missed!

We (my husband and I) just learned of Chuck's passing and wanted very much to extend our sincere condolence to you and your entire family.
I worked with Chuck at GE and he was kind and generous to me and David, but Chuck was kind and generous to simply was in his nature.
He was simply a good man.

I just learned of this recently and am very saddened and shocked
that he left us too soon. Chuck and I go back to Pearl Road
Elementary School and we played a lot of Parma Heights
City Baseball together through the summers. He was a great guy
with humor and class. Rest well my fellow classmate.

Prayers to Chucks wife and family. It is with a heavy heart that I share my condolences to his family. It was such a delight meeting Chuck in the computer networking classes this April through June. He always had such a happy and jolly spirit about him that made everyone feel comfortable and at ease. He has been missed and we will remember him for his big smile and happy spirit. May the Lord comfort you during this time of lost.

I was shocked to here the news this week of Chuck's passing. I have lived outside the Cleveland area for many years now, so news comes slow to me. We were in school together since Pearl Road. I have so many memories--athletics, student counsil. I am extra sad that I was not able to make the 40th reunion. My thoughts and prayers are with friends and family.

Chuck will be in my prayers and wishing the best to his family and friends; so sorry for your loss. I would see Chuck at our reunions and all summer long as my wife and I walked the neighborhood nearly every night. Chuck was always friendly and a great guy to chat with. Chuck will be missed. My apologies for not being able to attend his service on Friday.

With deepest sympathy to his family, friends and community - I reflect on "dancing bear" as we called him in high school -- for his humor and compassion, as well as his strength, from the football field to his character and support of others. We'll remember you!

Posted by Dominic Ricchetti - Seattle, WA - friend/classmate   June 19, 2015

Stacee, I was so sad to see this in the paper this morning!! Please know my thoughts are with you during this very sad time.

Posted by Gayle Wojcik from Securitec - Medina, OH   June 19, 2015

We always looked forward to seeing Chuck at reunions. He was a good person and always had a good word to say along with a funny story-- usually about high school and something dumb we all did. We will miss him. Stacee, sorry for your loss. Our prayers will be with you.

Posted by Scott & Kim Campbell - Brecksville, OH   June 19, 2015

Chuck and I were teammates all through school, we visited when he came back from Chicago, and reconnected when he moved home. Mary and I were blessed to share fun and good food with Stacy and Chuck on several occasions especially the fondue at the home they loved.
I literally just talked to him a couple of weeks ago. We were planning some fun later this summer. Mary so much enjoys seeing Stacy while Chuck and I just talked of the old days.
Chuck visited me at Marblehead last fall with Chuck Biscotti before we attended a reunion for Valley Forge wrestling on Johnson's Island. We had already talked about going this year.
I cannot express how sad I am about this passing of a good friend too soon. He was class president but friends with so many we all lose.
To Stacy our heartfelt condolences. And to my almost lifelong friend..... rest in peace

Posted by Jerry Thomas - Litchfield, OH   June 18, 2015

I am sorry for your loss. Chuck was taken too soon. May your find peace and comfort as you work through your grief. Chuck and I were classmates from Kindergarten through High School.

Posted by Jan Sell - Parma Heights, OH   June 18, 2015

I was doing genealogy today and I saw Chuck's obituary. I was shocked. I could not believe what I read. I am so sorry for your loss. He was a great guy and a good man. He was so welcoming and warm to me when I visited your family a few years back. I thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent together. You all made me feel at home. It is at sad times like these that I truly regret not keeping close relationships with my uncles/aunts and cousins throughout the years. Again I am so sorry for you great loss. Please accept my deepest condolences.

My sincere condolences on your loss. I was one of Chuck's teachers in 1970 and remember him as a good student, great athlete and a good person. Although I was the teacher, he taught me. I thank him for that and may he rest in Peace. Again, my most sincere condolences to you and your family.

This was some very sad news to hear today, especially since I missed our reunion last summer. Chuck will certainly be missed and was a wonderful part of my high school memories.

Lots of emotion here Chuck. I've missed you for a long time. My prayers are with you, Stacee and the girls. Rest easy and in peace.

Posted by Mike Wagner - Walton, KY - friend, teammate   June 18, 2015

Chuck was simply the best... How shocking to hear he has passed, and so young. I am so sad. I do thank the Lord Jesus for the opportunity to meet his lovely wife Stacee at our 40th Class Reunion(my heart goes out to you, Stacee), and to catch up with Chuck after so many years. He was the most important boy of my youth, and what a blessing he was. From Greenbriar through VF, a kind and fun companion and friend, a gentleman... a fantastic wrestler, football player, etc.... so bright, affable, genuine, and "deep." I'm so sorry (sister)Cathy, and family. Stacee and Cathy, the entire Jones family will always remember your husband/brother as a fine person; the handsome, upbeat young man who graced our Magdala Drive home for a season... the "sweet" and all too short period of youth and innocence, which we now look back on fondly. Chuck, you were deeply loved and appreciated, and may you now be loved perfectly, eternally, in God's everlasting arms.

Posted by Diane Jones Thorpe - Palm Springs, CA - Friend   June 18, 2015

Chuck was one of the brightest & funniest guys I ever knew. We spent quite a bit of time together through the 4 years at Northwestern and had some great times through the years after graduation. My condolences to Stacee and extended family; RIP my friend...

I grew up with Chuck. He lived on the street behind me as children. We played sports together, we were in cub scouts together and he would be over for scout meetings when mom would host them and always the biggest guy in the room. He was always a great guy and class act even as kids. To my old friend Chuck, it was my honor to know you and consider you a friend. You will be missed and remembered always. Until we meet again.

Posted by Phil Salem - Seven Hills, OH - friend   June 18, 2015

I am so sad to hear this news. Chuck and I go back to grade school. He was a great friend for a long time. A significant part of my past dies with him. I will miss him. He smiled easily and often and he had a way of making the best out of every situation. Stacee, I am thinking of you now. I am so sorry for your loss. I know Chuck loved and respected you greatly

Posted by Charlie Biscotti - Brecksville   June 18, 2015

Chuck, you will be missed, Thank you for all you have done for the Township!
Outstanding man!

Deepest regrets to all of Chuck's family and friends. I got to know Chuck better after high school then during school. My apologies for not being able to attend his memorial on Friday.

Posted by Carl Schanz - Brookpark, OH   June 17, 2015

Though we've only been neighbors for a few years Stacee, you, Chuck, and of course Bella have truly touched my family. Chuck will be greatly missed in the neighborhood. Thanks for the morning light for the kids going to school.
Our condolences,
Mike, Terri, and Tia

Stacee and Family,

As everyone has said, we are all saddened to hear of Chuck's passing at what truly is still a young age. For me, he was so welcoming as our class president and even when we were older attending our reunions. I just saw him at our reunion and he is still the same guy I remember from back in school.

I know it has to be terribly hard for the family. My thoughts are with you.

Posted by Janet (Schlacht) Beadling - Dallas, TX - high school friend   June 17, 2015

This is the kind of thing that shakes us all for different reasons. I grew up 6 houses away from Chuck. From his mom feeding a voracious group of kids (Kovach, Morris, Mason, Metzger) during the summer and after school to his accomplishments through life. He added a great deal to life and he certainly will be missed. It definitely was wonderful to spend several hours with him at the reunion.

The sad thing is that he's gone. The great thing is that we had him for 59 years. Sleep well Chuck.

So sorry to hear about Chuck, he was a good friend and we had many NU memories. Our very best to the family. Lodi

You will always be my cousin CHUCKIE...We grew up together, we always got along growing up,and continued to keep in touch with each other, after all of these years.

Hard to believe we just talked for 2 hours on Saturday....I will miss you.

Prayers to dear Stacee...You couldn't have married a more perfect person...
Prayers to you..Cathy and your family...

There are just no words to describe the sadness I am feeling. Chuck was one of my childhood/neighborhood friends who I roamed the streets with during the summer and on weekends. His passing has triggered so many fond memories, including lots of laughter. I feel blessed that such a remarkable guy was a part of my life during my Greenbriar and Valley Forge days. My deepest sympathies go out to his sister, Cathy, and his wife, Stacee. Please know that he had a big impact on the people who knew him. A wonderful guy from a wonderful family.
God Bless you, Chuck.

I was so sorry to hear of Chuck's passing. I went all through school with him. And he was a good friend of my sister, Chris's. Please know that you are, and will continue to be in my prayers.

Posted by Patty Caffrey-Rzonca - North Olmsted, OH - Friend   June 17, 2015

I am so grateful that I had the chance to see Chuck at our reunion last year. He was always such a wonderful person to spend time with. Genuinely kind with a great sense of humor. From the early days at Greenbriar Jr. High to our 40th reunion. Always great to spend time with him. The world is a better place because he was in it.

Posted by Sandy Kish Jordan    June 17, 2015

I never managed to reconnect with Chuck in adulthood, but he was a sweet, sweet boy and young man. I have the dearest of memories of our long friendship. My deepest sympathy to his family.
