Papa Chuck had the ability to outlive the loves of his life, not he never outlived love... Needing extra aloha to continue in his last year, there are special people whom gave our father the true peace that was so needed: His son-in-law, Patrick La'a, and care givers: Roxy Akase, Kimi Cavaco, David Allen, April Vea, Charles Nicholson, Pauline Tapuosi, Sifa Tanoa, Kinisimere Nayacalevu, & Erica Dean of Island Hospice.
