I remember working with Chuck when I was reporting a few bugs in the old EOS D60, detailing what was and was not to be expected behavior.

RIP Chuck, you will definitely be missed, and my sincerest condolences to any of your close friends and family who might encounter this thread...

Chuck, rest in peace. I had met him at a conference in Baltimore where he was manning the Canon stand, beside all these suited people, he was the only one willing to have a chat, a long, long one. A true lover of photography, whose most difficult task was balancing what he knew with what he was  allowed to say. He is now in a place where there is no noise...

I have never had any interaction with him, but being a Canon guy, Chuck Westfall is a name I would immediately recognize in a positive manner.  Condolences to his family!

Sad news indeed.  :(  I really enjoyed his presentations.  He seemed knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

A wonderfully moving service for Chuck yesterday, only fitting for a guy as real and generous as they get. If you ever met him, or even just conversed, it was most apparent. If you hadn't, you missed one of the best.
For, not only was he incredibly knowledgeable, he made you feel good and, no matter show stupid your question was, you were always a lot smarter around him.

Chuck was a GREAT man and a talented executive.  I will miss him dearly.  He gave of himself and always had a kind word, a firm handshake and advise that was immensely "on target" and well thought out.

I've never known anyone in the industry like Chuck who would take your calls, spend time with you at the shows and always write back.  His smile was genuine and he didn't pull punches if he knew you were wrong and that "honesty and integrity" was a gift.

I'm upset because I didn't know he was sick and he never said anything. I feel so bad that I even bothered him with some things that seem so trivial compared to what he was going through.  He never complained, he was and acted like someone in life who will be remembered as a "gentleman".

I miss Chuck, I always will.
