Chuck retired after 20 years of working for the State of Michigan. In retirement he enjoyed Tai Chi and admiring cars, especially Corvettes. In 1977 Chuck met the girl of his dreams. Chuck and Karen were married on August 29, 1986 and he spent the past 34 years as a devoted husband and best friend to his beloved wife. They enjoyed anniversaries in the Upper Peninsula and together they shared a life full of love. Together they have raised champion Doberman Pinschers and enjoyed spending time at the family farm. He is survived by his loving wife, Karen; his mother, Mrs. Ovada Stotts; his daughter Princess (Shata) Hurd-Bogans; his grandsons, Trenton and Jaxon; his sister Florine (husband Bob) Ray; his brothers, Ellis and Tom (wife Shirley) Stotts.

Karen, my heart breaks for you. I'm so sorry for your loss. Chuck was a good man and he will be missed by many. Just keep swimming, and if you feel the need to talk to someone that navigated the rough waters of losing their husband, get my number from Laurie and feel free to call me any time day or night. And don't let anyone tell you how or how long to grieve! Just do one day at a time. Hugs
