Longtime 7190 figure Chuck Chera dies

Chuck Chera, a well-known District 7190 Rotarian who was the charter president of the Twin Bridges Rotary Club, died on Saturday after a long illness.

As the club, which serves the Halfmoon/Clifton Park area, announced on its Facebook page: “Chuck was the force that started the Twin Bridges Rotary Club. Chuck also gave birth to our signature community service project, ‘The Spirit of Thanksgiving.’

“As a true Rotarian, Chuck treasured serving our community. Chuck was involved with the Gift of Life, helping to heal children’s hearts. His passion for Rotary knew no bounds. Chuck made Rotary a family affair, involving his children and his grandchildren. To say that he will be missed is an understatement.

“Services will be limited to immediate family until something can be planned after COVID-19. Donations can be made in his name to the Twin Bridges Rotary Club Foundation.”

Rich Griesche, 710 district governor, said, “He touched the lives of so many of us in District 7190 and beyond.  Many of our current Rotarians were brought into Rotary by Chuck.  … May you rest in peace, my dear friend.”
