I have only met Chas one time and that was the Fall seminar for DCALS 2019. He was presenting and I approached him to ask him where I can get a hold of his other papers that he's written and presented previously as I am a newly-licensed surveyor in DC. He graciously sent me a package a few weeks later. I was shocked upon hearing his passing as I had just received his papers in the mail. I just wanted to let his loved ones know that he was so welcoming and nice that he sent a stranger help and it was such a kind gesture that he did right before his passing.

Please accept my condolences. I worked for Chas for twelve years at A Morton Thomas. He was a great boss and mentor. He had the largest impact on my career. If it weren’t for Chas I would likely be in a Career that I woulD have no passion for.

I am sorry that I could not come and pay my respects this past Saturday. I attended many MSS and DCALS seminars that Chas presented on over the years. He was an easy person to talk to about any subject matter regarding surveying. My condolences to his family on your loss.
