Chuck was well known for his energetic and charming personality. His genuine kindness and smile would brighten a room. Almost certain to turn a frown upside down, he had a way to make you laugh on your worst day. 

Chuck loved anything adventurous and outdoors-related. Some of his favorite passions were scuba diving, camping with his family and friends, hunting, and cooking. Most important, he always showed a deep love for his family. He was the best brother, father, and friend—one who would give the shirt off his back to anyone he met. He will be deeply missed. 

He is survived by his children; Lindsey (Marc) Lawrence; Kristen (John) Gombos both of LeRoy, Nicholas (Lauren) Stalnecker of Buffalo; sister Missy (Charlie) Schuh of Elma; Louise Ley of Buffalo; grandchildren Noah Neth, Parker, Zachary and Abigail Lawrence, Madilyn and Max Gombos; mother of his children Anne (Jim Gravanda) Canale of LeRoy; niece Maria Schuh and nephew John Schuh. Along with many longtime friends and extended family members.
