Icon81 Uncle Chuck Had His Eye Removed (Disturbing, but not embedded)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWkOr81BOpc

This is a video of a few family members talking to an uncle who has no left eye or eye socket... Apparently, it had to be taken out due to cancer. Comments said he died four months after this video.

Any more information on him?

The man is real, I don't know about the "uncle chuck" story though. I saw him on the Discovery channel. Sorry, the name of the segment escapes me at the moment, I'll try to find it.

Ugh, I didn't last 30 seconds watching that video. I can't stand eye trauma.

That could probably be created with makeup, but it would be hard to do.
