A Tribute to Chuck Wielgus by Alan Abrahamson

Wed, 10 May 2017 16:00:27 Z

Chuck Wielgus passed away April 23, two Sundays ago. He was 67. When you've known someone for some 20 (or more) years, like Chuck, there's that hurt. For his family and for everyone who knew and assuredly not just liked but loved him. It hurts that he's gone. At the same time, Chuck was one of those guys who held for a great many people a very special place in our world. Too often in journalism, those people don't get the chance to say what should be said about a guy like Chuck -- to tell the rest of the world about his fundamental decency, his essential humanity, how someone like him sought, of course imperfectly, to make a difference.

USA Swimming CMO Matt Farrell's Personal Thoughts on the Passing of USA Swimming’s Chuck Wielgus

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 21:18:26 Z

USA Swimming announced on Sunday the sad news of the passing of Chuck Wielgus. He was a friend, mentor and great leader. I remember vividly the day 10 years ago when a group huddled in his office and he shared that he was diagnosed with cancer. He delivered the news straight, almost like he was sharing what he did that weekend. He didn’t want sympathy and sure as heck didn’t want us to treat him any differently. And we didn’t.
