Chuck Cudo was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. He was beloved by all those who came to know him. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, riding 4-wheelers, sharing all parts of the outdoors and spending time with his family and friends. He was well-known for his “garage” barbecues and fish fries. His door was always open, and he would welcome visitors with a great big smile and a bear hug. He touched many hearts and created many memories that will never be forgotten. We loved him dearly and will miss him more than words can say.
In regards to Chuck’s wishes he will be cremated, his ashes will be spread at the cabin and placed at the cemetery.
