    Chuck was man who served both his country and community–he was a man of honor–we will pray for his eternal rest.

    Our entire family owes a debt of gratitude to Chuck, and hopefully we let him know that during his lifetime. When our boys were young and had their early morning paper routes, Chuck as a police officer always watched out for them. We always felt safe sending the boys out, knowing Chuck was keeping an eye on our boys and on Ashland. Thank you, Chuck.
