    I worked with Chuck on the railroad between 1977 and 1984. He was a good guy and one heck of a locomotive engineer and will be missed. Condolences and prayers for his family. I’m reminded of an old hymn. ” Life is like a mountain railway” RIP Chuck 🙏

    Sincere condolences to the family. I am so very sorry for your loss. May God provide the necessary peace and comfort to your family and friends during this difficult time. Please remember these words of encouragement from the Bible: “ Jesus plainly told her: “I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” —John 11:20-25.
