For the last three days, Sunday the 26th to Weds the 29th, Chuck ,myself and Norm Miller have been at the National Glider championship just outside of Albuquerque, N.M. Chuck and I were the plane captains and ODO for Norm who was one of the competitors. Chuck dropped me off at the airport this morning and then went back to the competition. As Norm and Chuck were towing the glider back to the flight line Chuck slowed the truck down ,had a massive heart attack and died.
I don't have many other details right now. Norm is in ABQ right now and will head back to Fallbrook, Ca. with Chuck sometime tomorrow. He will give me an update sometime tonight or early in the a.m. I will pass along any more funeral info as I get it.
My phone number is : home 815-464-1987 Cell 815-540-8129.
I know his family is in our hearts and I will have Norm pass on our "good thoughts" when he gets out west.
Chuck was a GREAT AMERICAN and I will miss his energy.
