Charles E. Yergeau, 64 of Choctaw, Okla., formerly of Vermont, passed peacefully into the arms of the Lord on Wednesday, April 17.

Chuck's greatest gift was his ability to love. His highest priority in life was to extend his love to those around him. He sacrificed many things in his own life so that he could care for those he loved. Besides his own large and loving family, Chuck gave love, guidance and shelter to many others without reservation.

Chuck spent his life in building maintenance. If it could be taken apart, repaired and put back together, it was in Chuck's realm.

Chuck's wife of 35 years, Barbara, describes Chuck as always having a smile on his face, no matter what, and says the life they spent together were the most wonderful years of her life.

Chuck leaves his wife, Barbara; sons Christopher, Scott, Robert, Jay, David, and Mathew; and daughters Cruzita, Crystal, Mary, Denise and Jessica; 16 grandchildren; and extended family. Chuck is predeceased by father, Gerald; his mother, Mary; and brothers Jerry and Neil. He is survived by brothers David and Allen, both of Vermont.

Services will be held at a later date.

"And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make."
