Chuck was a GREAT neighbor and liked to tell jokes that he told when he was on the radio, his love of animals was AMAZING and he loved to talk about them! One time a cat climbed on the roof and climbed down into their yard and he said that if the cat wanted to belong to their family that bad then he was IN!!! He bragged about his wife Jane and how SMART she is and he was so proud of her. He was always friendly and we love him and miss his great personality! He and Jane were loved by us and perfect neighbors!!

Howard & I would like to extend our sympathies to the whole family. We know or have worked with many of you and as well as Ivan himself. This surely was a shock.
