Charles H. “Chuck” Gould
He was born on July 13, 1933 in Manorville, PA, the son of Richard and Twila N. (Lukehart) Gould.
Chuck served for nine years as a member of the US Army and then served in the US Reserves for four years. During his time in the Army, he lived in Germany for three years and also spent time in Alaska. Music was his passion and he loved playing bluegrass music; he even had his own band in Germany.
Chuck worked for the C&K Coal Company for 21 years and was a member of Sligo Presbyterian Church. His lifelong dream was to build a shanty in the woods and he was proud that he accomplished that dream after he retired.
Chuck will be remembered for his love for his family and for playing the Doghouse Bass and guitar.
