  1. One of a Kind,
    Chuck Adcox taught me so much about life during my most trying times. They were trying for him as well but he perservered and thereby instructed me without so much as a word.
    He then met Alda and I Maggie and his example of how to carry on saw me thru.
    A time and place for everyone and we lost frequent contact but never love and respect for each other
    Goodbye my friend we’ll meet again

  2. Alda and family –
    Our sincere sympathy for your sadness. Please don’t hestiate to call upon us if you need anything.

  3. Dear Alda and family,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you during your time of loss. Time can sometimes take away the pain but the memories keep us going everyday. Focus on the good times and keep Chuck in your heart every day. I think of you often!

  4. Oh Alda…I’m so saddened by Chuck’s passing. His kindness and teasing always gave me a chuckle each time I saw him.

    May your sorrow be lightened by the wonderful memories of all your travels and the life you had together. Remember the Panama Canal pictures you shared?

    My thoughts and prayers are with you always.

  5. Dear Alda and family,
    Please accept my sincere sympathy and warmest thoughts at the loss of your husband and father. May your many happy memories of your days with him comfort you at this difficult time.

  6. I was very saddened to hear about Chuck. Even though I had know Chuck only a short time I had grown quite fond of him. He had acted as a mentor for me in the truck sales and heavy equipment business. I could always count on Chuck for advice and always looked forward to getting his emails of jokes.
    My sympathy to his family.
