    My husband and I were personal and close frinds to Chuck. We are still in shock- as is most of his friends here in Baltimore. He was larger than life at times and always laughing and joking. His competitive nature is historic- he and my husband would play pool in our basement for HOURS!!! I hope he is not forgotten by his fans- we will always think of him

    Thank you Kathleen for recognizing my brother for being larger then life. He was my baby brother which many people thought he was my big brother,because I am short. I love my brother with all my heart and me and my family will miss him dearly. We really appreciate your comment.

  3. I was a teammate of Chuck at Clark-Atlanta University. I was a sophomore, when Chuck came back to Clark Atlanta, after serving time as a U.S. Marine. Chuck was a “Class Act.” When ever someone asked a questioned that required a yes or no answer; Chuck’s reply was always either “Yes Sir, Yes Sir or No Sir, No Sir!” As a Semper Fi,Marine, I think those words Yes Sir and No Sir became ingrained in Chuck’s vocabulary. His Best Friend back then was a guy name “Huff.” I know Huff must really be hurt by this news. Also, I know Coach Willie Hunter must be in shock. He Loved all his players, but he treated Chuck and a guy name Quincy Woodard, like they were his very own Sons. Rest In Peace my friend.

    Sorry to hear. Chuck and I were in the same Platoon together in boot camp. Platoon 2060 2nd batallion United States Marine Corps. I am originally from Atlanta. Lived in Vine City (close to CAU). Chuck was at University barber shop (corner of Brawley and M L King)when I began telling him about the Marines and my plan to enlist. He decided to enlist with me. That was June 1988. All of his brothers in Arms are sorry to hear this. We send our condolences to his family. Chuck is not forgotten……Semper Fi.

    Chuck (Bo), his brother Darryl and sister lived in Bacharach Blvd (AC) for a couple of years with me. Bo played football and basketball with the guys from our neighborhood. They moved just as Darryl and I started high school (1979-1980). I lived in the Baltimore-area when Chuck played w/the Ravens and won the SB. I had no idea it was him. RIP. All of Bacharach remembers you and your family.
