Although he initially retired in 2001, the Board of Education reached out to him requesting his services in the same capacity. He returned to work for another 8 years, primarily due to the love and caring he had for his special students thru 2009. His love and caring was not limited to his special students.

At age 6 he helped his mother with the moving of his 3 year old sister Linda and his baby brother Pat from Columbus Ohio to New York, and the long flight to Germany where his father was recently stationed. In the 70’s, taking on numerous part time jobs to make sure there was food on the table for his children, starting up one of the first summer soccer camps for the children in Bowie, MD, and taking his children across the country to discover their roots with their ancestors in Oregon. He never stopped moving forward and taking care of others including neighbors, friends and family.
In 1982 Chuck married Beverly Dixon and his life changed dramatically; he had found a partner in life who also accepted the responsibilities of helping Chuck raise this three children. As Beverly was a Special Education Teacher, there was not only a professional bond but an emotional bond that lasted the rest of his life.After his final retirement in 2009, Chuck expanded his activities. He continued to fix and refurbish anything especially if it involved an engine, he even learned and became a proficient banjo player and continued to provide 24/7 care for his mother and father who were in their 80’s.
Two of Chuck’s joys of life were being with family and spending time with his wife Beverly at their beach house in Ocean City.
