Charles (Chuck) Victor Engel was born Aug. 3, 1944 in Dayton, Ohio and passed Jan. 2016 in Rockledge Fl. He moved the family to Florida from Columbus, Ohio in 1977. Nicknamed Cheech by Carol Minnich, a 2017 Honoree and long-time friend, he enjoyed his life and the times spent in Key West. He loved his family and friends, learning new things, gave generously of himself, and never lost his sense of humor. An avid space program fan, he owned and operated Shuttle Moving & Stg. In Titusville, Fl. in the 80s. He was a member of the Rotary Club, and volunteered for "Meals on Wheels" and "Big Brothers Big Sisters". Like Carol, he suffered much pain but with great dignity. 

Chuck and wife, Marguerita, celebrated their 50th Anniversary on Dec. 29, 2015 with a large party of loved ones. He will be forever missed by his wife, his three children and their families, all his relatives, and all his friends! His spirit lives on in joy and laughter!
