Chuck was born in Stockton Ca.and his family moved to the Los Angeles area a year later. Grade School & High School were spent in Burbank where he played a trumpet in the school band but grew practically over night to 6'1 &1/2" and became Burbank's Football Star Running Back. He joined the Merchant Marines and then went into the Navy. Out of the service, he attended Loyola University on a football scholarship and went on to play with the Eagle Rock Athletic Club -a semi pro team. He tried out with the Rams and the RedSkins but there were no openings so he stayed with Eagle Rock for seven years andwas voted the "Most Valuable Player" three of those years. Chuck was also involved in bringing Rugby to So. California in the early 50's. Eagle Rock, Stanford, UCLA and Pepperdine competed in the beginning.

During his football career, he was also a Professional Boxer, fighting under the name of Chuck Daley.

The promoters wanted him to fight as "Jack Daley" because it was a tougher Irish sounding name, but when he was 14, he had his name tatooed on his arm and there was no way to get rid of the "Chuck" at that time. (And yes, it's still there.)

He had 8 professional fights, 6 fights at the Olympic Auditorium - 5 one round k.o.'s, in which he broke one opponents jaw, put 1 guy in hospital over night and one in a concusion for week. Chuck boxed on the Card of two Championship Fights. One in Illinois at the Chicago Stadium with BoBo Olsen & "Kid" Gavilon and in Las Vegas Nev. on the Card with Gene Fulmer & Peret .He finished with 2 wins and 1TKO when he broke his hand on the last fight causing him to retire.

He was Heavy Weight Champion of the 5th. Fleet in 1946 and also Heavy Weight Champion of Loyola. He made $75 a fight, 1/3 to his Mgr. $10 to a "cut"man and $5 to Corner 2nd.and a percentage to Roger Creed and a possibility of $4,600 a year playing football. He made more in the motion picture business and so turned his goals towards that direction. He is still doing Stuntwork, Acting, Stunt Coordinating and competing as an athlete playing in the Softball leagues in the Los Angeles Ca. area.

Chuck started in the movie business in 1951. His first job was 'Working Her Way Through College" as a football player (ahhhh!) with Ronald Reagan, Don Defore, Virgina Mayo, and Gene Nelson. He was standing-in and stunt-doubling For Clint Walker, star of "Cheyanne", learning the "Biz" when he was "Discovered" by Lucille Ball on a TV Special -"K.O. Kitty", and signed to be one of the original "Untouchables" for Desilu Productions in the part of "Kane".

One of his major Character roles was "The Brow" in "Dick Tracy."
