He was an avid fan of the New Orleans Saints. He acted as Assistant Scout Master when his son Chuckie was a member of Boy Scout Troop 27 in Lawrenceville, NJ. He was incredibly handy with home renovations and loved cooking and grilling and experimenting with new recipes. Chuck had a wicked sense of humor and was always ready with a humorous remark to make you smile.
