As my El Roble counselor and a newcomer to Claremont, Chuck made we feel welcomed and let me know that I could always come to him if needed. Later, as a troubled and rebellious teen, Chuck and Ruth were always there for me, without judgement and with open arms regardless of the trouble that David and I often got into. They were my rock and source of stability growing up and part of the reason I am who I am today.
Chuck was the most loving, gentle, and caring soul that I have ever had the pleasure to know and I will miss him and his smile dearly. Claremont won’t be the same without you!
