Not only was Chuck an accomplished and respected businessman, he was also extremely generous to those he knew and those he didn’t know. One of her greatest joys in life was buying Christmas gifts for those in need. He was always there if anyone needed a helping hand. Chuck loved a lot of things such as restoring vintage cars, his Harley Davidson collection, traveling in his RV with Patty, watching the Flyers games and just enjoying life with his family.
