    From the first day I got to the camp officer Bennett was always that person that made you feel comfortable to talk to. He always had a good joke and even better advice , not just for me but every one. He was fair and made the camp the best . From a former inmate and from some of the other guys still there, rest in peace. My condolences to his family and friends.

    Chuck was one of the good guys! I was saddened to return from vacation and learn that we lost him way too soon. He was allways smiling and joking around, with a wink for us all. I hope his family knows how highly we thought of Chuck here at C.C.C. End of watch…. for now, untill I see you again upstairs!!

    Chuck was one of those guys that you hope to get as a partner. He spent 14 years in the Navy and started the dept at the age of 34; he knew how to work hard and how to handle stress. He also knew how to tell a good joke, how to make everyone around him feel at ease, and how to be a team player. He is one of those rare individuals who was truly loved by everyone who knew him. Sincerest condolences to his wife of 31 years, Patty, and his 4 daughters. He was only 54. RIP Chuck, love you my brother.
