Although I only was informed of Chuck's passing recently, I would like to reach out to Joy, and Ling to express such deep sorrow and sympathy for your loss. Many years ago, we found each other on similar paths in life and quickly became very close friends. He was the kind of person who made you feel like you had known him forever. He took me in like family and introduced me to friends and got me mountain biking and hiking. He was like an uncle to my 2 children, who at the time were only 3 and 8. I could go on about his warmth and genuine spirit, steadfast loyalty, honest and integrity. I could go on because for that brief period in life, I knew that I had someone I could count on for really, anything. Joy, you may not remember me, but I so enjoyed time with you and Chuck at your place in Midloathian. Ling, I know in my heart that you are a wonderful, loving devoted person; as that is what he was. It breaks my heart to know that he will not be present to see Joan grow, but I know that because her father was who he was, she will be brave and honorable and bold with a bright, wide smile. Although this is many words, I truly cant express my gratitude for his friendship; Ling, bless you and your daughter. You are both eternally blessed by the angel that will watch over both of you until you meet again. Liz Rynex Illilnois

I posted some of this on facebook earlier this week, but would like to post some of the same sentiment. here.. Every once in a while you meet and work with someone that changes you, who makes you a better friend, husband, brother and son... Chuck interviewed me with the owners of my current job back in 2012... And since them I have been grateful to have been able to know and spend time with Chuck. It's been a few weeks since Chuck passed and l'll freely admit this has been such a personal blow to me and has been terrifically difficult to process, mostly because it was so sudden and unexpected... I don't think I've ever known a more brilliant and fierce friend than what I experienced with Chuck. We spoke daily- sometime briefly, sometimes our entire lunch-break for these past years- sharing personal and professional experiences beyond anything I've ever shared or discussed... we talked often about life and balance between work, life, and extra curricular things. He always elevated my understanding in almost every subject we spoke of, and it was rare that I knew more on a subject than he did. Chuck had an uncanny understanding of electronics, motors, computers, and networks and could fix almost anything I threw at him. When I had a particularly difficult computer giving me hastles, I'd run the issue by him, and the things I had tried-- And more often than not, he had a suggestion of something I had missed... His mind worked through problems like water flows down a stream- unimpeded and free, and always flowed in the correct direction... and as a result, his solutions were brilliantly more often simple- but just beyond the reach of mere mortals. He could have chosen to work for anyone, but often told me he loved working in a space where no one was trying to "one-up" each other, and where he was valued and appreciated. About 2 years ago he actually left where we work, hired by one of the biggest private companies in the county, but came back 4 months later because he couldn't stand the lack of integrity and backbiting... I was grateful he came back, but the truth was he had never left. He kept up with the servers and working from home to help whenever needed. (For all of you computer admins you know how much that says about our trust in him and the fact that we never felt the need to block his access or accounts to make that happen...). He was just that kind of guy. That was Chuck to a tee. Whenever I needed help he volunteered his time and would help, no questions asked, no matter what time of the day or night. These last few weeks I've had my heart drop a few times as I expected him to turn the corner and come talk to me, only to have it be someone else... or when I go to his office and expect him to be seated there working away. No one will ever come close to measuring the depth and breadth of the man that Chuck was... He was also a dedicated husband and new father, and always beamed with excitement when he would share videos and pictures of Joan's progress and growth. He loved and adored his wife Ling, and it was fun to see the change in him when he got married and became a first time father. We all miss you Chuck... I miss you brother. God Speed. God Bless. Till we meet again.
