They say that sometimes you never miss something or someone until they’re gone. Well, Chuck’s absence has been felt here for a while. His diagnosis of a brain tumor came as a shock last January and he’s spent the last year fighting it. I’ve been lucky enough to work with him for the past 7 years here in the buying office. He’s probably one of the best people I’ve ever known or will ever know. Smart, funny, well-read, he’s brought his wonderful sensibilities to Harvard Book Store since 1994. He died at 12:48 Monday afternoon. This loss to the book world is immense. I’ve missed him every day he’s been gone, and I’m going to keep on missing him.
