We will always fondly remember his kindness, intellect, and his “passion to tinker”.

A few times in our lives we are privileged to meet people who are truly unforgettable – and it was at one of those times that I was privileged to meet the unforgettable Charlie Chappell. Via an introduction by his son, John, Charlie and I became close friends and mutual admirers. I found him to be an amazing man, blest with an amazing mind, and both he and his wife made me feel always welcome whenever I entered their home. He will be missed by many, but his memory will live on – and we shall look back and remember that our world was made somewhat better because of what Charlie did in it.

Barb and all of Charlie’s Family:
I am sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. He was a leader that changed the community he lived in for the better. He was creative, a risk taker and someone that dreamed big dreams and then made them happen. We are all better for what Charlie gave to us in this life.

Our sincere and deepest sympathies for Barb, the boys and the entire Chappell family. Charlie was a kind, caring and generous man. His selfless involvement in business and community will certainly be missed. A personal dear friend of mine, I’ll miss our intuitive conversations and his contagious smile.

It brings much sorrow to say that we have lost a great man. Charlie was a man that always gave me advise on how to be smart business person, but also how to treat others as you would want to be treated. My sympathy goes out to Barb and his family. He will be missed, but not ever forgotten. Brent
