Chuck helped form TARA into the incredible Amateur Radio Experience we all enjoy today.
His enthusiasm never waivered from raising funds for our first repeater, to volunteering and organizing communication events.
Chuck was always around his radio, even at his shop known as
"Stoddard the jeweler".
Watches were his specialty and I would visit and watch him repair the tiny gears and springs that made the watches of those days tick-tock away.
He was also a proficient CW operator using a bug to casually talk at 20 words a minute
while he would carry on a conversation with me in his shack!
Every Field Day he was there start to finish.
Chuck receives an award for his outstanding service to TARA!
