It was sad to hear about his illness, though inspiring to see his sons pre-inheriting his tools.  Dignified is a good descriptor, Roger.

RIP Chuck.

Bye Chuck.
 At least your videos will keep inspiring others and allow them to still learn from you.
 We all knew it was coming, but, :(

Chuck helped and encouraged me when I converted my Bridgeport type mill to cnc.  Very patient and free with his knowledge.
I was sad to hear of his passing.

I'm deeply saddened to hear the news, even after he initially shared this with us.

 Chuck was a genuine diamond in the model engineering community, he responded to just about every comment on his many builds & was always more than happy to help anyone out. As mentioned by everyone here, he was a genuine man who freely shared his talent with everyone.

Always the inventor & innovator, his air powered engines with his slave valve & rotary valve designs brought a whole new way of designing & building model engines, & those engines lived up to the original, right down to the popping sound of his John Deere, Fairbanks Morse, V8, & most recently, the Maudslay/Fellows Marine engine, amongst every other project Chuck worked on...

 Not to mention his gear cutting fixture, carb design, die filer, solenoid engines, & any other project he laid his hands on & knew in his mind how he could improve it...

 A word that resonates in my head in Chucks posts..."Elegant", I think Chuck was an "Elegant" engineer in life, & applied that to everything he did, his projects, & everyone he touched.

 We're going to miss you Chuck.

 My deepest condolences to the family & his many friends,

 John McClelland

The reoccurring theme here seems to be how Chuck was always willing to help anybody out, how about we rename the 'Specific Engine Help' thread to the 'Engine Help in memory of Chuck Fellows' thread or similar.

RIP Chuck

I have learned a lot from him and he treated me with utmost courtesy and enthusiastic support when I started this hobby and began posting on these forums. I still have some projects of his to build and some ideas he planted in my brain for other future projects.

If his family is following these posts I can understand the loss of a family member to a horrible disease having had to deal with that kind of loss multiple times myself. Know that we respect not only Chuck and his contributions but the contributions you may have made by letting him spend so much time and energy in his shop and in helping and supporting us here on these forums.

Since I read that Chuck had given his shop equipment to his sons I've been dreading this.

There are 6 or 8 people on this list I have the fantasy of meeting face to face while someday visiting their shops. Just stop by while traveling through town. Chuck was on this list. I will miss his posts and the fantasy of meeting him in person.

Very sorry to hear this news. 
Hope he can keep on building his beautiful engines near to the great builder.
