  1. Aunt Dorine and Family- We are so sorry to hear about Uncle Chick’s passing. Please know that even though we cannot be with you during this difficult time, our thoughts and prayers are with you. I can still hear Uncle Chick calling me .Kimmy. like he always did. Most of all, I love telling the story about the time you guys took care of Me, Steve, and David and Uncle Chick would NOT allow me to eat boil peanuts because he had never heard or seen them before…BUT, he had pigs feet in our refigerator that he was eating! Now, you can cherish the good times and know that he is at peace. I know my Dad opened the gates for him on April 24th. We love you! Kim, Kevin, and Kaitlyn

  2. Dear Aunt Dorine and family, My Uncle Chick was like a father to me he caught me doing all the things a teenager wasn’t supposed to do like smoking in my bedroom thinking I could get away with it. In Polish he always called me .bones. because I was so thin as a teenager. His and your visits to our house in South Carolina have not been forgotten. Aunt Dorine I am sure his .UConn. buddy was waiting for him at the gate. We will all miss him dearly but never like you will my blessing are with you always. Love Your Niece Betty

  3. Dorine and family ~ We are very sad to hear of Uncle Chicks passing. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. I will ALWAYS remember his smile (he was always smiling!) and how he would tease me each time I saw him about that time when I went to stay with the two of you and got homesick then tried to blame it on my little sister! All of our love ~ Michelle and family

  4. Every memory I carry in my heart of my dear Uncle Chick is filled with lots of laughter and smiles. I can remember each moment I have spent with my Uncle and those moments still carry a great big smile on my face and in my heart. One of my favorite memories is when everyone came to visit our family at Camp in Sherman and Uncle Chick, Uncle Stanley, my Dad and myself wandered through the woods to go fishing. I never laughed so hard. A hug from my Uncle was a bit like coming home. He glowed with happiness, warmth and love. Throughout my life I find myself thinking of the joy of those moments. Uncle Chick, I love you! Until we hug again, my dear sweet Uncle!

  5. Family I will forever in my heart keep the smiling face of .uncle chick…. ever present a each labor day picnic at Uncle Stash and Aunt Helen’s house… I am so sorry for your loss…
