My the things my husband and I could say about our friend Chuck. He was a fine bass singer who sang on the other end of the music scale from Stephen, who sang tenor with The Shepherdsmen. Well miss knowing youre around Chuck, but I guess youve been called to that heavenly choir! Love you buddy! Cindy and Stephen Ledbetter

Earth's loss is Heavens gain. Know he's singing praises to his Lord in person. Now, THAT'S an audience.

The Victory Boys Quartet considered Chuck a dear, talented friend. We will miss Chuck very much. He has moved to the home he has sung about for so many years. We'll see you at home good buddy.
