    My Uncle Chuck was a very special man. He came to visit me in Orlando when I was a teenager and having health problems. I still have the furniture him and my grandfather made and will always keep it. He was a super Uncle and will be missed. I Love you! All my love to may Aunt Alice and their sons David and Kevin and their wives and children. You are all in my prayers during this time.

    I worked with Chuck Vail at Cummins SE Power in Tampa. When I transferred to the warehouse, Chuck was a big help to me. He showed me how to inventory generators and marine engines. Also how to track down any missing items. I purchased a large bell from him in the 80's and have passed it on to my son in law as he was the only one to ring the bell when he came over.
