I wanted to extend a memory of Chuck. I was probably one of many college engineering interns with Penndot that Chuck worked with over the years. In the summer of 1986 I was assigned a small bridge project where Chuck was the chief,near Caledonia. I learned a lot about construction from Chuck as well as how to handle contractors, it was a pleasure working with him. The next summer I had graduated and was loaned out to Penndot from a private company for the Rt 15 highway expansion. Chuck saw me arrive at the project and immediately got me into the bridge construction inspection section, saving me from a summer of watching contractors grade dirt and pound rocks, I was very grateful for Chuck for that. I am sorry for your lose and I will remember Chuck fondly. I have my own engineering firm now and I still rely on the things I learned those couple of summers.

It is with great sorrow that I say goodbye to an old dear friend and to you, his survivors, I offer my condolences. He was a friend,a mentor in shooting, and someone I always looked forward to sharing time with. I am much richer for having had him as a friend. Bill

My condolences to the family. For many years my family was acquainted with the Doll's though their gun shop. In college I was a roommate and a sorority sister of Kelly. I learned of good family times and I remember a funny her Dad said to Kelly as a small child not wanting to eat a meal " it or wear it!" I guess that was the wrong directive, she chose wear it. I see that his great family values and 2nd amendment appreciation was spread to many and as a roommate of Kelly I became a CHP holder after attending GMU. As a coach at GMU he was able to reach and influence many young lives. Bless you now in heaven and your family in this time of loss.
