    I was very saddened to read about Chuck’s passing. In our younger years we quite often spent time together. Sledding, the Groton Carnival, the Fitch bonfires and the list goes on! In 1977 Chuck did the music at my wedding in the little Church in Stonington. My brother, David and I send our Deepest Heartfelt Condolences to Chuck’s parents, his wife, Elsa, Debbie, Sue and Doug. As well as all of his family and friends. Rest in Peace Chuck.
