Chuck Blessing

The Blessing-Hine Funeral Home staff page would not be complete without mentioning the late funeral director and manager Charles R. "Chuck" Blessing. To say that he learned his profession from the “old school” is not an exaggeration, and he always maintained the high standards he developed as a young boy.
