    Stevie, Mel and Natalie, Tony and Kevin,
    We are sending you our deepest condolences and prayers on the loss of Chuck. When thinking about Chuck the only word that comes to mind is “Fun!” I only remember fun times with Chas. First time on a roller coaster, first time in a casino, first time in Las Vegas, our Bahama trips, taught me how to play roulette, how to use the Harrahs Diamond Card, Maureen being a “librarian…..”, our games of 66. Chas will be so very deeply missed. I hope that your memories of the fun times with Chas will get you through this most difficult time. We love you guys!

    Breana, Bryson and I will forever remember our Uncle Chuckie as being the fun, lovable, happy man he was. He would always light up the room wherever he was. I will never forget our five hundred games with Bre and I up against Uncle Frankie and Uncle Chuckie. although our games were quite competitive we were all laughing and having a fun time. Whether it was his jokes or pranks he would always find a way to lighten the mood. Uncle Chuckie you will forever be missed. We love you, rest in peace.

    Tom and Jan,
    It has been our great pleasure to call the Voyten family our friends for the last 20+ years. And to my dear friend Chuck, I will always cherish our trips to Vegas, the Meadows, having numerous lunches together and arguing about the Pirates.
    You were one of the best men I’ve ever known. You may be gone my friend, but certainly never forgotten.



  18. Bob Hruby on August 5, 2018 at 9:05 am

    Chuck sure am thinking of you this morning playing our round of golf every Sunday morning- right about now you would say at hole #8- ‘Bobby, I feel good and I am going for green”. I love and will miss you Chuck- Bobby H

    Stevie, Natalie, and Melanie,
    Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. So many great memories of coaching the girls in basketball and softball at St.Louise. The fun
    times we had at games, tournaments and just getting together. I knew every year I would see Chuck at the St.L Fish Fry and it was always like
    yesterday that we had been together. Chuck was a wonderful person and a great guy who we loved dearly. We are always here for you all .
    May God bless Chuck , you and your family.
    Peace be with you all.

    Jim & Cathie Cramer and Family

    Stevie, Natalie, Melanie.
    I’m lost for words. I talk about working for “Chuckie” all the time. Coming to your house early in the mornings to get the order slips. The trips to the Meadows. Many things. I don’t know what to say.

    Rest well my best man.

  34. Scott Briggs on August 7, 2018 at 7:56 am

    My deepest sympathies and thoughts go out to Melanie, Stephanie and the rest of the family. Some of us called Seafood Chuck “Big Fish”. He could very well have been called “Big Heart”. He was a great guy that was always there to lend a hand or support and will be missed early by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. He is one of those people that I feel honored to have called a friend.



  35. Ken Griffin on August 7, 2018 at 11:11 am

  36. Mike Gorton Jr on August 7, 2018 at 3:31 pm

    Hi Stevie, Natalie and Melanie, I am so very sorry to hear about your father / husband. Chuck was, without a doubt, one of the nicest, most sincere people I have ever met. I have very fond memories of Chuck and Stevie attending my wedding back in 2005 and he would always say what a great day and setting that was. We did business together for so many years and he always gave me so many opportunities and I always looked forward to talking seafood with him weekly. I also remember our 5 day business trip together out in Las Vegas years ago and I had so much fun with him! I am so very sorry for you loss and if there is anything I can do to help you with anything, please reach out to me. Much Love to all of you and he married a great woman and raised two wonderful daughters. Mike Gorton



  37. Joann Murphy on August 7, 2018 at 8:34 pm

I just returned back to Bethel this evening and learned about Chuck’s passing and sorry I am not able to be there in person. Chuck was a wonderful man and will be missed by all. May your many loving memories bring you peace during this difficult time.



  39. George Brendel on August 14, 2018 at 4:35 pm

    Dear Stevie and family, very shocked and saddened to learn of Chuck’s passing. Much to young. Will always remember ‘crusin’ in the 289 Ford in senior year. My deepest sympathies.



  40. David Lerner on August 15, 2018 at 9:57 am

    Dear Stevie, Natalie and Melanie, I am so sorry to hear about Chuck’s passing. I’ve known him for 25+ years and whenever we talked, our business dealings always ended up as conversations about family. As a father of 2 daughters slightly younger than his own, his famous line to me was “just wait. It WILL get better.” And he was right! He loved to talk about family and friends, his trips to the casino’s (he rarely “lost”), and of course, the Steelers. As a Pats fan, we’d have an annual steak dinner riding on the outcome of the Pats/Steelers game. Somehow, I would always, gladly end up with the tab! He was a great man. We’ll all miss him dearly, but we also have lots of stories and memories to look back on. If there is anything I can do or offer, please don’t hesitate to call.

    Las Vegas years ago and I had so much fun with him! I am so very sorry for you loss and if there is anything I can do to help you with anything, please reach out to me. Much Love to all of you and he married a great woman and raised two wonderful daughters. Mike Gorton
