Chuck will be missed

I felt a need to write this letter to the editor about Chuck Smith. Chuck was a proud member of GBHS class of 1973.

But Chuck touched probably more lives than any of us. You could find Chuck in the Great Bend Tribune almost daily and whether you agreed with the topic he was covering or not you read the article he wrote.
