Upon arriving home late last night, tired after an 11 hour drive, I learned of the passing of Chuck Westfall.
I felt like I had been punched in the chest.
I had the privilege of meeting with and talking to Chuck on numerous occasions and considered him a friend.
Likely, most of those who watched or listened to Chuck, or simply read what he wrote, considered him their friend as well.
Although incredibly intelligent, highly professional and always relevant, Chuck had a special way of conveying friendship.
Chuck's name was, and long will be, synonymous with the Canon brand.
Chuck was always ready to listen and willing to answer any question presented to him.
One could always expect the right answer to be clearly explained and ... it was usually delivered immediately.
Thanks for everything, Chuck! You will be greatly missed!
