Goodbye to a loving husband,father, son, brother and friend.
On Friday, November 17, 2006 a perfect rainbow appeared and arched over the glistening waters ofQualicum Beach as Chuck peacefully passed away.Â To those gathered by his bedside it was as if God was opening the gates to Heaven and welcoming Chuck home.
