He was preceded in death by his parents and sister-in-law Sarah Chilldres.
Chuck worked at Chicopee/Johnson & Johnson and Polymer Group as production and maintenance supervisor, along with various other positions for almost 40 years.
Those of you who knew “Chucky” would describe him as a loving, caring and affectionate person, and that his grandkids were his pride and joy. He would gladly share or give away any item that he had in his garage or out in the pasture. You would have thought you were in Lowes or Home Depot. Some of his special times were raising cattle with his dad, helping him with the garden, driving his tractor and riding horses. He was also a prankster and enjoyed roughhousing with his kids, grandkids, nephews and friends. Our family will always remember the fun times at the lake, waterskiing, tubing, and hanging out with friends and once again, always aggravating and guess what, playing tricks on others. If he wasn’t fishing or playing golf, he was busy with his woodworking projects. Lastly, he was an avid Elvis and John Wayne fan. He loved those westerns! He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
The family would like to thank you for honoring his memory with your presence, thoughts and prayers
Visitation will be held 2:00 PM, Friday, August 5, 2022, followed by a memorial service at 3:30 PM at Boyd Funeral Home, in Lonoke.
