To know Chuck was to love him. You knew you had won his heart if he picked on you. He had a contagious smile, outgoing personality, positive outlook, was strong-willed and a jokester, making him a friend to many. Chuck demonstrated unwavering and phenomenal faith in God and was devoted to his family and friends having an impact on countless people and leaving the community to mourn an immense loss. He attended West Point United Pentecostal Church. Chuck was a sales associate with Harry Blackwell Preowned Auto Sales. Hunting and fishing were among his favorite pastimes along with telling many stories surrounding these adventures and his hunting dogs. He participated in competitive hunting and was a member of USDC and NSD Squirrel Hunting Clubs. Chuck won the Missouri Governors Cup in coon hunting and proclaimed himself a “legend” in the hunting community. Along with the many miles he covered while walking in the woods hunting, he and Pam also crossed many miles and saw many sights while traveling on his motorcycle. Chuck had served in the United States Army.

On July 27, 1985, Chuck married the love of his life, Pam Watkins in Doniphan, and he loved her true blue. She survives. Also surviving are his children, Brian (Sarah S.)
