HIS LIFE, HIS LOVE, HIS LEGACY

He accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior at an early age at Harrisonville Missionary Baptist Church and remained a member there.

Chuck received his formal education in the Oxford School District and was a graduate of Central High School class of 1966. After high school, he enrolled in Foster's Cosmetology and Barber College in Ripley, MS. In, December, 1967, he united in holy matrimony to Forestine Blake and God blessed this union with six  loving  children. He later married Doris Clark of Tucson, Arizona and though they had no biological children together, this blended family blessed him to be a loving father to Doris's five loving daughters.
