Kevin , Kent and Joe
Sorry for your loss. Chick was such a dynamic guy. He helped so many people in so many ways during his life. I and my family were beneficiaries of his good heart.
A great memory I have of Chick is when the whole crew was watching football in your TV room and how if someone got up and left the room, we would have a big shuffle to see who could move up into a better seat.....it was always competitive. Chick liked to instill that into people.
Again sorry for your loss. I will see you all on Wednesday.

I am so sorry for your loss.  I remember with great fondness all those times that our families got together.  Most vivid are the races that your dad organized at Lake Okoboji and that smile.  He was a wonderful and loving person who will be greatly missed by all.  He was a big comfort to mom when dad passed away and always had a smile and a wink for her at church.  We were blessed to have known him.

Kevin and the rest of the Connell family. So sorry to hear about Chick.  I knew him when we lived in Neb City. When we moved to Shenandoah, I would see him when I worked at the grocery stories. He was always so nice. I didn’t know Marilyn was his sister. May the Good Lord give you strength during this time.

So sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. I didn't know him well, but had much respect for him. I am certain he will be missed and I am thinking and praying for your family at this time. I'm sorry I am unable to attend as I just read of his passing this morning, but know that I will be with you in spirit.
