Well, one of many more to come, I guarantee it dad. I remember when we were roofing John Newman's house. He had left, and took the ladders,, you were committed to making more progress with the time we had left that day, because that's who you were. You came up with a plan...we would stand on your trailer, you would lift me up to the roof and then you would jump up, and I would grab you and pull you

Back in our early teen years, some Shetland ponies wondered to the farm. Chase came to the house to find me. "Come on, Mary, let's ride these ponies." The twins and dad were already by the ponies. We were taking turns riding them bareback. My pony was running, I was hanging on but knew I was in trouble. "I am going to fall off" I yelled. Without hesitation Chase calls back, "fall like an Indian." I knew just what to

Uncle Chase I remember coming back to live in Michigan for a while as I was an adult, I vividly remember him coming over to my parents house to come type up and research on his books during that time period. Mountain Dew seemed to be a pivotal role in his late night writings. His drive and curiosity always amused me as to what he was interested in next. He was full of surprises and will be deeply missed. He

I can remember when we were children and it was snowing outside. Chuck would go out for a head start at making snowballs to throw at his sisters. :) His joy of fresh winters snow will always be remembered in my heart as it was that same simple joy that drove him to pursue his passions in life.

When Pamela was born, Chuck was about five years old. He cried, because she was not a brother. His heart was set on a brother. One of his oldest sisters, told him, Chuck just think of all the things you will be able to teach her because she won't know how to play ball, drive tractor, ride horses, etc.' (We all know baby boys automatically would know how to do all these things, right?) Well, Chuck thought about it

Ah, CharlesTschirhart, there will never be another man like you. Nope. Not on earth and not in heaven. You were one of a kind. So, here is to you, Chuck, love you forever.

One memory that you reminded me of this summer was "the cookie thing" The cookie thing was when all of us were home and I took a pan of cookies out of the oven and 7 little guys (carol was big like me) each grabbed one, there weren't many cookies left and it seemed impossible to get ahead. And chuckie, you, were a big

One of my favorite memories is riding in Uncle Chuck's car when I was maybe 3 years old or so. We were going to pick up Aunt Sharon from college and we sang "if you're happy and you know it..." I also remember sitting on his lap when I was little as he taught me how to play euchre.

This memory always makes me smile..we were all up north at grandpa's playing ball in the front yard, Uncle Chuck was pitching

One of the funniest memories I have of my dad was when I was in college. We were using my truck to pull a trailer to help a friend of his move...a long way...about 8 hours or so. I was giving him a hard time because I didn't like him using my truck to work with, because he always WORKED it really hard. About half way my truck began to overheat, and we were late. I told him to pull

One of my favorite memories of uncle chuck was playing baseball in the front yard at grandma and grandpas. I always wanted him on my team, because his team always won and two, because I never wanted to field his hits. He was always so much fun and loved to play with his nieces and nephews. This summer I had an opportunity to sit with him at my moms along with my dad, mom, and aunt Mary and he
