    I enjoyed my time meeting Chuck on the occasions that I did.
    I’m so sorry to his Life partner Mary Shallenberger of 39 years who was Chuck’s love of his life.
    Her life will never be the same with his loss.
    My heartfelt sympathies go towards her.
    Chuck is now suffering no more and he’s with our Heavenly Father.

    I too only met Chuck a few times, but he was always kind and sweet to me. I loved his sense of humor, which his jokes, always cracked me up.
    You will be missed Chuck by so many people. You have your wings now, and you are out of pain. Prayers to all of his family and especially Mary who shared so many great years with him. RIP Charles Cable.

    recently, I learned that chuck was in nyc. i learned of his passing here, just yesterday. once i learned he was in the city, i kept my eyes and ears open, but learned i missed his remembrance ceremony, today. that leaves a void for me, as i so wanted to pay my respects to him. chuck always treated me like gold, and anybody that knew chuck that was something you felt like you earned. i spent a lot of time with Charles, and it will be cherished, but more missed. Effingham Illinois, i knew chuck came from, he referred to it as the crossroads of America. never been there, but i know one thing-they make good people there. i miss you chuck, chris berger
