Chuck on Left


Chuck was a modern day Cowboy, loving the freedom of living in the country, spending many hours learning to ride, train, and traveling to shows with his cutting horses winning many ribbons, and trophies. He had an infectious belly laugh, a great sense of humor, a huge smile, loved a good practical joke, and never met a stranger. He loved riding his motorcycle and recently was learning to play the guitar. However, his latest adventure was raising Border collies, and competing in herding competitions. Chuck was a man of God and at times was known to preach a sermon or two.  


A few quotes from some of the OSDA members:

“Chuck never missed a lesson day and everyone really enjoyed visiting with him. He brought me some nice dogs to train and he especially enjoyed watching me work and trial his Leigh dog. We will sure miss him.” Angie

“There have not been many times in my life that I met someone who I instantly became friends with. But chuck was just that special. He was always encouraging and supporting in his unselfish way.” SharonOKC State Fair - First Place - Chuck

“I remember the first time I met Chuck was at the first trial we had in Claremore. He was just starting out and had his Ren dog there with him, she was just a little puppy. The last trial I was at in Bowie Texas just a few weeks ago was very cold and windy and everyone was so wrapped up you couldn't even tell who people were. I was coming off the field from picking up score sheets and there was Chuck smiling back at me. He wasn't running a dog, just came to watch Angie run his Leigh dog, but he was there all day in the cold cold wind and insisted that I take his membership dues for OSDA right then and there. Which I did. He was indeed a very loyal member of OSDA, and always had a smile and kind word,
he will be greatly missed.” Susan

I met Chuck in January 2011 at one of Angie's lessons.  That day Chuck brought several of his dogs and he smiled proudly as Angie worked each one of them.  What I remember most about Chuck over the past year, when he would attend Angie's lessons, he always greeted everyone with a hug, a quick smile and plenty of positive comments about each dog.  Chuck often talked about his brother Wayne and their dogs.  Chuck will be greatly missed.  Pat McGowan

Shortly after the OAKTREE CLASSIC, I talked to Chuck and asked him how excited both he and his brother were with Angie qualifying their dogs for the Nationals. He said that Wayne keeps asking me if I wanted to see a picture of his buckle. As the two joked to each other… Chuck bragging that his dog was qualified and Wayne bragging that he got the Overall Buckle… the joking went on and on.
Chuck we miss you.” Kate
