With great sadness we announce the passing of our fellow member Chuck Bark on August 29, 2019. An active member for many years, Chuck has also served as a Board member of the CFMA Baton Rouge chapter and was an enthusiastic member of our chapter’s Dance Troupe. Friends describe him as a man with lots of integrity, always the most perfect friend with lots of love to share and a dedicated Cajun (Yankee-transplant) Dancer. We’ve all enjoyed his sharp intellect and frequent witty comments since he moved to the Baton Rouge area. Chuck devoted a great deal of energy to maintaining and upgrading our web site, and expanded our chapter’s use of email and presence on Facebook, to help reach a wider audience of Cajun music fans.
WBRZ TV has this profile of Chuck recognizing his work as the news director until his retirement in 2015, and his love of Cajun culture developed while living in Louisiana. His previous employer, WALA TV in Mobile, also acknowledged Chuck’s professionalism in the news department there.
We will sorely miss Chuck’s presence in our association, and offer our condolences and prayers to his family.
