They were blessed with four grandchildren Kodi, Carina, Justin and Amanda whom he loved dearly. Chuck strived to make God the center of his life.

Grandchildren Kodi (Ben) Schwarz, Justin, Carina, and Amanda Lewton. Brothers George Jr. (Judy) of Albuquerque, Ron of Tuscon, sister Patty Johnson of Tuscon, and numerous nieces and nephews.
