1991 Bluecoats Hall of Fame Member
Chuck became active with the Bluecoats in 1977 when son Terry and daughter Lisa marched their 1st season with the corps. When the corps re-formed in 1984, Chuck was selected as a member of the corps’ board of directors. While on the board, Chuck played a prominent role developing fund raising opportunities. His efforts solidified a long time relationship with fellow Bluecoats Hall of Fame Inductee Richard Kempthorn. Being friends and business associates in the community, Chuck and Richard developed a strategy which resulted in funding for corps busses. He also assisted with overseeing the Innovations in Brass and the Pro Football Hall of Fame Drum Corps Competition events that the Bluecoats sponsor. Chuck’s business knowledge was an asset to the board of directors.
The Bluecoats family lost a great friend of the corps when Chuck passed away in 2003.
