Chuck was a prominent local businessman and former owner of Career Concepts Staffing Services. He was a leader and innovator in the staffing and recruiting industry. The hardest working man, finally agreed to retire 12 years ago and enjoy some time with his wife, children, and especially his grandchildren. Family meant everything to him. Chuck grew up in “Little Italy” and it always held a special place in his heart. He graduated from Academy, class of 1957, and remained very active with his dear friends up until his passing. He was a Gannon University graduate and proud supporter of the university. Everyone would look for Chuck at Gannon basketball games where he held floor seats for the past 45 years. He received a special award from Gannon for all of his fundraising and support with an emphasis on helping student athletes.
Chuck loved to golf and even had a hole-in-one. He was probably one of the best poker players in the tri-state area and was always gracious and generous with all people. He was self- made, an underdog, and gave back to everyone and anyone who needed a helping hand. Chuck knew what it meant to be blessed and also what it meant to struggle. His number one concern was everyone’s well- being, whether it be family, friend, or stranger. He was the best husband, father, grandfather, and friend anyone could ever have. He was humble, witty, a force of nature, and proud to be Italian. Chuck was a beautiful soul and human being.
