In 1975 we all joined Northwood Country Club and played a lot of golf together until 2018 when they closed the club. I can truly say I loved Chuck like a brother and enjoyed being with him and Doris. I will miss both of them! My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  5. I am Mary and Lewis Wright’s daughter, Frani. Your dad was an amazing man. He called to check in on my Mom after my father died from Alzheimer’s. I remember your mom and dad coming to my parents to visit. My dad was the pitcher for University of Del. They had so much fun together. My mom died on Mar 24, 2020. I sent a Christmas letter to your dad with a memento from my mom’s funeral and I received it back as undeliverable. I just located your dad’s obituary page here. God bless him in Heaven with your mom. He was a man of great character. Hopefully, they are all in Heaven enjoying each other’s company!
