He was an active athlete in high school, participating in football, wrestling and his favorite sport, soccer. He received his bachelor's degree from UW-Parkside and then began working for the State of Wisconsin in a variety of positions, concluding his career in the fraud investigation program in the Department of Health Services.

He was inducted into the Wisconsin Soccer Hall of Fame in the year 2000 for his tireless support and promotion of the sport. Chuck also loved to travel, driving many thousands of miles around the country, visiting national parks and historical sites.
