Uncle Chuck kept people laughing with his great sense of humor. He always had a joke or would give you a "razzing" about something in a playful way. It was great fun as a kid having Christmas in the basement and eating on the ping pong table. A lot of great memories...he'll be missed.

I remember when we were growing up and got together with family at the Holidays Chuck, myself, and other cousins all had to sit at the "little kids" table. Chuck would always try to sneak some food off the "grown ups" table. Of course he always got caught. And then we all would laugh. He is my dear cousin and will be missed by all of us. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, Jean and your family. cousin, Carrie Brill

Jean and the entire Retkowski family, We're so sorry to hear of Uncle Chuck's untimely passing. We have so many (MANY!) fun memories together sharing his contagious laughter and general all-around sense of humor. It's hard to think of a time when Chuck didn't have a smile on his face or time to play with us and generally goof around when we were kids. He made his mark on this world and will be sadly missed by all that knew him. Peace and love to you all, Mike, Donna, Drew, and Matt.
