On Thursday, September 22, 2011 we lost a beloved member of the WGAR family, as Chuck Collier passed away unexpectedly. He was an Ohio boy, whose broadcasting career on the Cleveland airwaves spanned more than 3 decades.
He loved radio and he loved Cleveland... and Cleveland, along all of us here at WGAR and Clear Channel Cleveland, truly loved him. Anyone who ever listened to or met Chuck knew instantly the kind and caring human being he was.
To his wife, his children and entire Collier family ...our sincere condolences, along with our gratitude for sharing Chuck with us.
Rest in peace Chuck...rest in peace.
Hard to believe but it’s been a year already since Chuck passed away. Not a day goes by that we don’t think of him and tell “Chuck stories” that always end in laughter. He was a special man and anyone who knew him was made a better person by knowing him.
We miss you Chucker!
A Concert For Chuck took place on Tuesday, February 28th, 2012 at the Stocker Arts Center on the Campus of Lorain County Community College. The show featured performances by Phil Vassar and Neal McCoy. All of the proceeds from the evening went to one of Chuck’s favorite charities, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
