Progress seems limitless

Profoundly saddened earlier this week. I learned of the passing of a long time friend. Chuck was an enthusiastic ambassador for the Barbershop Harmony Society. I’ve had the privilege of knowing Chuck and singing with him anytime we saw each other for the last 30 years.

Chuck’s wife Bev had these poetic words as she told of his passing.

“This morning, Chuck Greene left the bounds of his earthly life. His spirit, joy, love, energy and passions will live on in everyone whom he has touched. He was the love of my life, and I was privileged to be a part of his for the last 21 years.

His philosophy in his work was this, “Seek, develop, use and enhance the skills and talents of each member to such an extent that progress seems limitless.” This is what he wished for you. And this is the legacy each one of us can carry forward.

Please remember Chuck with the songs he last sang with you, the excitement he carried, his energy when he directed, the gleam in his eye and the brilliance of his mind. And most of all, the smile in his heart.

Love you all, and thank you for sharing yourself with Chuck and me.”

What a beautiful tribute Bev.
