Prayers sent.
I had assumed Chucks death was from natural causes but this sounds like it may have been from some kind of accident. Can you say what happened or give a link to a news report?

Sorry to hear about this. Prayers have been sent. Chuck changed Airboating, and was an innovator.... he was always willing to share his wisdom.... he will be missed by many.

See you on the other side...

Do to a car accident he flipped 3 times and landed on the roof dont have any more information on it
The cancer did not take him
The man Chuck holds a deep spot in my heart
Me and him came up with the eco tech engine
Was one of the best designs he ever had
 
This is crazy. I was just emailing with him last week about picking up an ecotec adapter from him. He said his son was in the hospital so I told him focus on that and get back to me on the parts. I had no idea. Sorry to hear he passed. He seemed like a good man. Prayers to his family and that his son gets better soon.

So sorry to hear this. Chuck made a brave and gallant fight against cancer only to be brought down by a car wreck? He will certainly be missed, especially by his Grandchildren who had a very special place in his heart. He was an innovator in the airboat world, mentored by the late, great Dick Hoffman. If anyone has additional information please post. I have an old VHS tape somewhere when he was on the TV show "Junkyard Wars" building an airboat, will have to try to find it. Mark
