    Uncle Chuck, you were one in a million. I will forever remember how you always made me feel so welcome in the family. You were always concerned about others, and you brought so much joy with your warm smile and long tight hugs. I can still hear your clear deep voice and will fondly remember playing euchre with you at the family reunions. We did not see this coming, so it does not seem real. You will forever be in my heart.

    Celia and Nick, Know that you are in my prayers. We are happy that he did not face a long illness, but it will take time for the pain we feel in our hearts. God bless you both. We love you!

    Loved to hang out in Bayer Warehouse with Chuckie and talk about life and bowling. Enjoyed keeping in touch on facebook too the last couple years. R.I.P. Chuck, you were one of the nicest people I’ve met. You will be missed by many, but none more than your family, closest friends, and bowling buddies. To all of you, I offer my prayers and condolences as you make your way through each day without that wonderful smile to greet you. Heaven just got a lot more fun with Chuckie there !

    Celia and Nick,you both know Chuck and I were “buds”, we shared lots of memories as we cooked the chili for the Scout Chili Supper each year. Chuck taught me a lot when it came to makin good chili. He will be missed by so many friends. Just glad he was a part of my life.
    Cherie’s memorial service is the exact same time as Chucks, I am so sorry I can’t be there. Will definitely have you all on my mind and in my prayers.

    Celia and Nick just thought I would share a fun memory of Chuck. Had to be one of the last PBA events held at Laurel Lanes. Just happened that my oldest boy Kyle bowled the Jr Pro Am and won a trophy. Chuck made it a point to tell Kyle on our way back to Oklahoma to comment how nice his trophy is and to make a point to ask me “So where’s yours?” I have a lot of good memories of y’all that will forever be. Rest In Peace Chuck and tell Dick Weber I said hello.

    Celia and Nick,
    Such an unexpected loss! You have my deepest condolences. Chuck was an awesome guy, onery is an understatement. Nick when you were born I’ll always remember your dad saying he was glad you didn’t arrive rusty! They’d waited so long. God Bless you both and know he’s in our Father’s arms.

  18. Bobbie Stacy Mays on February 16, 2019 at 7:46 pm

    Celia thinking of you and Nick and keeping you in my prayers. So sorry for your loss. I enjoyed reading Chuck’s posts and seeing you and Chuck together and always doing fun things. He expressed his love for you Celia freely. Prayers for you and Nick!

  19. Bruce & Michelle Wobbe on February 16, 2019 at 10:45 pm

    Chuck always had a smile and always made me laugh. The world is sadder without him. I’ll miss chatting with him and wish it could have happened more often than it did. Celia and Nick our thoughts are with you . Chuck was a good man and we were all blessed to have known him

  20. Judy Ball and Pete Soto on February 17, 2019 at 6:53 pm

    Celia and Nick, I am so very sorry for your loss. I hope you realize how often both of you are in my thoughts and prayers to find comfort. Chuck was always full of fun and always made us laugh. He was such a pleasure to be around. He was a good man and I am so happy to have called him my friend. I will miss his hugs and remarks to make us laugh. He will be missed so much. May you always remember all the fun times you had together. God Bless you both.

  21. Mark&Lawrie Hoffman on February 17, 2019 at 7:34 pm

    Celia and Nick so sorry to hear about Chuck he is and always will be an inspiration to us.

  22. Gary and Janice Conner on February 18, 2019 at 1:15 pm

    Celia and Nick, the lives that Chuck influenced are legion. His leaving our world for one far better creates an emptiness that will not soon be filled. He was a True Friend; there when you needed him, regardless. You could count on Chuck to brighten your day.
    What a character! What a Man.

  23. Mark and Abigail Church on February 20, 2019 at 1:04 pm

    Chuck Wobbe was, without a doubt, one of the kindest, generous, and warm-hearted people I’ve ever met. The love and friendship that he showed to me, my wife, and daughter will never be forgotten. No matter what was going on, he always had a smile on his face and a sunny outlook (even if I gave him grief about Mizzou losing a ball game). Maybe the most honorable sentiment that you can say about someone’s life and legacy is that they were a good man or woman, and Chuck was truly a good man. My family is going to miss him greatly.

    Celia and Nick, not only are our thoughts and prayers with you, but a shoulder to lean on or cry on as well. We love you both, and are here for you in any way we can help.

    Celia and Nick
    Thinking of you both and praying for you, Chuck so loved to tease – that is how I will fondly remember him, always.
    Much Love and God’s Blessings,

    Celia and Nick,
    I couldn’t make it to the visitation, as I had a bit of a problem staying upright.
    Sorry about CHOKE, but glad you had such a great guy. I’m sure prayers and good memories will help you
    In the coming days. Love, Bub
