    For Chuck,
    Too many great memories to list here. Family get-togethers were always the BEST. Fishing trips, picnicking in the mountains and various holidays. Christmas time always stood out to be one of the most memorable. Remember going to downtown Denver and seeing all of the holiday sites, stores and lights, finishing off with a visit to Santa. The Dad’s were responsible for all of the kids on these particular trips while the Mom’s prepared a nice chili feast for us upon our return to warm everybody up. I also remember when Chuck dressed as Santa (quite convincingly) attended several of our groups celebrations. What a person, never was there a time when you didn’t have fun when Chuck was present. He always lit up the room, no matter what the occasion. As kids, we always cherished the times we had with the Fisk family, knowing that Chuck would make us all laugh and bring nothing but pure joy to everyone. As an adult, one of my favorite stories to hear him tell was when we were all little, there was one particular Christmas that our family passed down some of our old bikes to the Fisk family as they were in need of some help at that time. As kids, we had no idea that this had been done. Shortly after Christmas we had a get-together where I noticed that my bike ended up as a Christmas present to one of the Fisk kids. Of course, I had to ask the question why MY bike was now one of theirs??? I’m not sure how we made it though that ordeal at the time but between our parents and Chuck and Gerrie they were able to keep things in check. There were many more stories and memories that I was fortunate to have because of this man. He was a wonderful friend, father and person. I was lucky to have known him and he will be sorely missed.
