Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Mary and family, We will all miss “chuck, jr” and wish you well. He did “the good fight” in his illness and we are proud of him; prayers to him at Mary’s parish, Regina coeli, Toledo. We all love mary and her stamina! Fr. jim and the parishioners

  2. Dear Family of “Chuck”. It is with my deepest sympathy that I send prayers to you. I remember Chuck coming to our house on California Blvd. My mother, Rose McKaig, adored him. He was a gift from God!

  3. I am speechless and in shock at seeing this obit. There were only a handful of us who hung out together in high school. Chuck was our “GI JOE”. He was just the strongest, most handsome and dedicated to his rifle and the army. His rifle was his girlfriend in high school. I lost track of Chuck in recent years and haven’t seen his beloved mom, Mary, since my mom died. I will always remember how Mary came to see me when my mom died in 2000. I never had the privilege of meeting the lady Chuck chose as his wife but I can believe she had to be extra special and I believe that he had to be totally dedicated to his wife and children. May his legacy carry on through you all. Mary, I hope you still live in the same place cause I will try to come see you. I never knew Chuck was ill. It is just unimaginable to me because he was always so fit. I will remember him in my prayers as well as all of the family and will cherish our childhood memories always.

  4. To Chuck’s Family, Sorry about your loss. You have my sympathy! Rick Morgenstern Toledo Central Catholic High School: Class Of ’62

  5. To Chuck’s Family.I am an old classmate from St. Catherine’s School.As soon as I saw Chuck’s picture in the obit, I didn’t even have to read his name to know it was Chuck even though it probably has been over 50 years since I last saw Chuck.We really didn’t hang around with the same crowd in grade school and further we went to different high school’s.He CCHS and I went to St. Francis. Chuck as I recall seemed like he was quite diciplined which would explain his military life , was a very good student( probably better than the rest of us guys) and was an athlete.It’s funny how you remember certain little incidents while you’re in grade school.Chuck and I were competing in the CYO track meet at the end of our 8th grade year.We were competing against other catholic schools.I had won the event the year before so I guess my folks thought I had a good chance to win again.I recall that it came down to Chuck and me and he blew me away.I went over to him and congratulated him and he of course he was very modest about it. I thought that was very neat.I would also like to mention that our class of 58 had a reunion 2 years ago and Chuck couldn’t make it. Every time his name came up my buddies had gook things to say about him. He was a good man.I will include Chuck in my prayers every night and for all the other’s who we grew up together with us.I am goingto foward Chuck’s obit to some of our other friends.God Bless your Family. Terry Brown

  6. I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Captain Steiner was one of my ROTC instructors at Georgetown. He was a good officer and we all had a great deal of respect for him. He had a lot of advice for us about what would be facing when we got to the “real Army.” I remember one time when a few of us cadets, soon to be commissioned and much too full of ourselves, went to Captain Steiner with a complaint about something he had asked us to do. He promptly chewed us out and accused us of attempting a mutiny. Of course he was right and I realized immediately how stupid I was.

  7. Tom just read Chuck’s obituary in the Notre Dame magazine. We were so surprised to read this. Tom and Chuck were in the ROTC unit together at ND. Tom had deepest respect and admiration for Chuck. I remember Chuck from when I would go up to campus. So sorry to hear of your loss.
