It has been nearly forty years since I worked as a young officer on the Chicago Northwestern Railroad Police Department. I always remember Chuck as one of the nicest guys, a terrific family man and a dedicated law enforcement officer. He would take the time to coach a new department member. Everyone liked and respected him for the genuine good person that he was.
