Chuck attended Our Mother of Sorrows and Flaget High School (class of 1972), where he was a standout multi-sport athlete. He played football at the University of Louisville and graduated in 1976 with a degree in Business. Football was a big part of Chuck’s life and he continued his love of the game as an official. His 40+ year career began on the small field, refereeing youth football, and progressed to the collegiate level as a side judge and replay official in the Southeastern Conference (SEC). Chuck officiated many high-profile contests, including multiple SEC Championships and bowl games. His professionalism and knowledge of the game were unmatched. Off the field, Chuck was a dedicated business owner who helped grow his UPS Store to one of the top in the state. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather, and will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Visitation is scheduled for Sunday, October 3rd from 1-4pm at Pearson’s. A private burial will take place at Calvary Cemetery. Memorial gifts can be made in Chuck’s name to Hosparus Health and the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.
