We are shocked and sadden by this terrible news. Charles was a wonderful writer and photographer. His thoughtful critiques were a favorite among local readers. Our entire community mourns this sad loss.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to Charles' family and co-workers at the Rockport Pilot.

My last communication with Chuck was just last week to thank him for his latest editorial on the dangers of plastic pollution and litter abundantly discarded in Rockport, Fulton and Aransas County. It was typical of his reporting and writing in that it named specific local problem sites and then went a step further to explain the ramifications on our community beyond the obvious eyesore. I will miss him personally and professionally. Gayly Opem

After working the booth next to me at Earth Day/Bay Day a year ago, Chuck became a lot more than just the very professional writer that he was. He genuinely cared about the Earth and all its creatures. So sorry to see this smart, thoughtful voice silenced. My deepest sympathies to his loved ones.

A caring and sensitive man...a voice of reason in a sea of crass verbage, his views on global warming, pollution and racism will be missed by all, thanks, Chuck
