Chuck was adept at identifying nearly all varieties of trees and rocks, often collecting and gifting some of his prized finds to family members or keeping them to landscape his home. Being self-educated, he could also identify all species of birds, surprising even the most experienced avian enthusiasts. He liked watching sports and was an avid Cleveland Browns fan.
