I am the last of your sister, Mary J. Minerich's children. I saw you at our house almost every Sunday and other days if you wanted to watch a ball game. You loved mom's coffee, gave all your nieces and nephews nicknames which were quite original. From what I heard, although I wasn't there, you had a very joyful time living with your nephew, Dennis Minerich. Lots of people didn't know but you held a degree in teaching. You have touched all of us and we are glad to have known you. Have fun reuniting with your wife and loved ones. I am sure that they have all been waiting for you. God will lead you to them.

Grandpa Chuck will be missed so much. Whenever my mother in law, Penny (his daughter)could, she would bring him to family holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Grandpa loved watching sports and talking about his military career. I swear Mom and him lived to argue. Not in a bad way, just getting each others goat. You could see a sparkle in their eyes when this happened. I swear Grandpa moving in with mom extended their lives as well as enriched them both with their own little imp ways.
He will be missed, and he was truly loved by his nieces, nephews, grandkids, and great grandkids.
I hope he's up there now playing cribbage with mom and everyone else who has gone before us, and is enjoying some great conversations.
Rest in peace Grandpa Chuck. We love you.

My Grandpa Chuck was well-loved and we all miss him so very much. Even though I didn't get to see him very often, he was still the great man I remembered, telling stories and always willing to lend a helping hand. Saying goodbye just means "see you later"

Love you Grandpa Chuck.
