Charles Richard Wintz (Chuck), 81, of Jacksonville, Florida passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, August 27, 2018.

Born November 4, 1936 in Marion, Indiana, Chuck moved to Florida to attend the University of Florida, where he graduated in 1962 with a B.S. in Business Administration with a major in Accounting. Chuck remained a proud and lifelong Gator fan.

In 1962, as a Certified Public Accountant, Chuck became a partner at Tornwall, Kearney, & Wintz CPA's in St. Petersburg and Clearwater, Florida. In 1976, he moved to Jacksonville, Florida as the executive Vice President and Chief Financial officer of McDuff Appliances, Inc. In 1980, Chuck opened his own CPA practice, Charles R. Wintz, CPA - which he maintained for over 35 years. During his career, he served as a member of the Tax Division Committee of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the President of the Florida West Coast Chapter of the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants. He was the founding trustee and director of the Retail First Insurance Group, where he served on the Board of Directors until his passing.

Chuck had an immense love for family and friends; to whom he never grew tired of telling a good story. Those that knew him were always encouraged by his positive attitude and friendly manner. As a lover and collector of five classic cars, his passion began as the President of Coachmen Car Club of South Bend, Indiana in 1958. He served as the Vice President of the Antique Automobile Club of America, Northeast Florida Region. Chuck took great pride in showing cars, and received many national and local awards and certifications.

Chuck was preceded in death by his parents, three sisters (Donna, Marilyn, and Alberta), and step-son, Stephen Parsons.

Condolences to Chuck's family and many friends! He will be missed! 40 years ago I was running in the River Run and when I returned home, we leaved close to each other in Mandarin, I found the sign of a candidate for mayor with the same last name as mine in my yard on Scott Mill Road. Chuck had changed the wording on the sign from you can trust him to can you trust him! He was the greatest! Rest in the Peace of the Lord, Chuck!

Our prayers go out to Sandy and the family. We have known Chuck for more than 25 years. He has been a good friend and a good accountant for our businesses. I can still hear Chuck and Stan talking about what to do next to their cars. He will truly be missed as a friend and as a business consultant. Fair well dear friend.

He was the best trip planer and navigator for our AACA tour groups. Had such a good time driving those trailers through narrow roads and sometimes not very good roads. Showing our cars across the country. Driving in parades. A great VP in our group. Going to miss you. Enjoy your ride on that highway to heaven. Sandy he was the best.
