Most people knew Chuck from A Kut Above Barber shop where he was co-owner and barber with Bruce Childress for over 40 years. Chuck also was a real estate agent at RE/Max Express for 12 years. When he wasn’t working, he was outside. He loved golfing, boating, skiing, and yard work. Family and friends would say, “he is the only guy who would cut his grass whether it needed it or not.” Chuck loved people and seemed to never meet a stranger. He always had a story to tell or a joke to share and always a listening ear for everyone.

Come enjoy a day of golf, love, and laughter in remembrance of Chuck and help support the research to end Melanoma Cancer!
