After graduation, Chuck and Jeannie moved to Williamsburg, VA where he began his engineering career at Newport News Shipyard. He worked with several engineering firms in the Hampton Roads area before founding CxAnalytics, a building commissioning company in Williamsburg.
Chuckís favorite pastime was spending time with his daughter Chloe. They loved to ride their bicycles to the bagel shop every Saturday morning and play chess. There was always something to be created (or destroyed), rockets to launch, boats to paddle, stars at which to gaze or woods to be explored. He was an avid cyclist and had started competing in triathlons before his cancer diagnosis in 2012. Chuck will be remembered as an extraordinary father and husband, talented engineer, loyal friend, and loving son and brother. He brought joy to all who knew him and will be deeply missed.
