    My heart just sank reading his obituary today. I served in the Army with him while stationed in El Paso back in the 1970s. He,SFC Walker and I shared an office and, I even flew with him as his “co-pilot” once!
    He sold me WOW insurance for me and my family. We had some fun times and I will always remember home fondly. Rest in Peace.

  • Teresa Wood

    Chuck was my first boss with WoodmenLife. Thanks to him seeing something in me I didn’t see, I had a 32 year career with Woodmen. Thank you, Chuck! Hugs to you, Janice! You were an important part of those first few years of my career as well! We had many great times at the Woodmen youth camp on Lake Brownwood!

    I am so sorry to hear of your passing Chuck. You were like a father to me and gave me a lot of chances as a young man. I would not be where I am today if you hadn’t taken a chance on a young kid. You were a strong leader and a good man. This world could use a bunch more Chuck Holbrooks!
