    Trudy, we were saddened to read in the Peoria Journal Star today that Chuck had passed away. We are still Bradley University season ticket holders and no one has ever taken you and Chuck’s place right next to us. Hugs and prayers to you, Trudy and to your family. Sincerely, Tim & Patty Colgan

    My thoughts and prayers are with Trudy and the rest of the family. I enjoyed working with Chuck at Bradley University.

    Trudy and family. Deepest condolences from the Benschoter family. Benny had planned to attend service last night but had a fall yesterday which required a trip to hospital. Our thoughts and prayers are with you!
