Great story on the former Gopher and Laker. Per the article:

In 2019, Charles Mencel and Ann Mencel moved to St. Michael to be close to their second daughter Debra. Charles Mencel enjoys playing bridge every Tuesday that he’s available at the Crow River Senior Center and he likes playing the card game 500 with a group of friends that meets in his neighborhood.

Charles and Ann Mencel also enjoy going to their cabin on Lake Vermilion. They love their 18 great-grandchildren.

“Over time I’ve developed what I call my five fingers philosophy. If you pay attention to the five fingers, what they represent, you’ll have a good life. The thumb is to make good choices, number two is wake up every morning with a good attitude, number three is bring joy to all your relationships, number four is have spiritual life, and number five is love your neighbor as yourself,” Charles Mencel said.

Go Chuck Mencel!!

None of them said be a fan of Minnesota sports, so I'm buying in.
