The Friend Zone (Eddie Powell, 2012) hit
Chuck was my longtime friend, colleague and sometime co-conspirator. Chuck passed away in Mexico while on vacation with Robin. They were celebrating their 28 Anniversary.For those of you who did not know, Chuck had many health problems that he has been managing. Sometimes well and other times not well.Here is what I know about my friend Chuck.He served in the Army during the Viet Nam era, though not in a war zone. He was a member of Local 189 of AFSCME Council 75 for 28 years. He Served as President of Local 189 for 8 years, served on the Council 75 Executive Board, Chaired the Political Action Committee for 8 years during part of my tenure at AFSCME as the Political and Legislative Director. He was Chair of the local SubChapter of the AFSCME Retirees. He was an avid bowler, card and game player, had a remarkable memory for all things historic and..., was a spectacular Chair and parliamentarian, he loved good food, rare scotch, good whiskey and wanted his steaks Blood Red and barely warm. He was a sing-along person to any song he knew, loved Musicals, adored his wife Robin and could almost always make me mad as hell and laugh in the same 5-minute window. We shared our distaste for politicians with no moral compass or commitment to a cause, He simply had no time for people and elected leaders who were not altruistic. He always stood up for the right thing, like it or not!He was way too young, just 67 years old. Too young to be gone from all of us who loved and cared about him. We had many more card games to play, many more dinners to enjoy and many more laughs to have and plots to make for those on our joint list. Not long but well deserved, good and bad.Rest well my friend your duty here is done. Those of us who mourn will watch over your family and our friend Robin.
