Chuck was a lover of nature, animals, and even to his last days, had a curiosity and a desire to learn that was not stunted by his many health issues. He was a devoted husband, proud father, and “goofy” grandpa to his four grandchildren.
Chuck is survived by his wife, Geri; children Sarah (Wayne) Smith, Sun Prairie, WI, and Jason (Haylea) Jackson, Brookfield, WI; grandchildren Kendra Jackson, Marchello Johnson, Crosby and Jude Jackson; brother John (Nancy) Jackson and sister-in-law Helen Jackson. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and special friends Harold Paul, John Gent and Russ Furumasu.
