I am so sorry for Chuck’s entire family’s loss. I am confident he will be in the presence of Christ. He had a fun & silly side but he also cared so deeply for family. He was in the background at family events videoing & no one knew this until recently. See you one day soon, Chuck!

Chuck was so much fun! I always loved hearing stories of his shenanigans. When Chuck was about 12 he walked over the top of the coliseum. Shimmied up one of the side beams and walked over the whole steep roof. As a kid who loved to climb anything and go fast… Chuck was the man. I will never pass that Coliseum without thinking of Chuck and picturing him walking over it. Next time you’re there, or passing by, take a good hard look at the roof. Chuck had serious Moxi.

The Junior League Rummage sale was always an inpromptu Coleman reunion. I remember the excitement of it all. I’d usually spend my time running back and forth from the line to the beams on the side. I remember the moment my Mom, Dottie told me Chuck had scaled the roof as a kid. I looked straight up at the looming building overhead, because you KNOW the Colemans were up front in line and I thought “there’s no way…” and ran back and climbed back on the beam. I looked towards the roof and was intrigued. Very intrigued. I had to see what this was all about. I took my shoes off. I couldn’t get the grip I needed with my shoes on. The old blue paint felt chalky under my feet. I glanced at my Mom and thought about what she’d said. I pictured a silhouette of Chuck at the highest point as he went over against the horizon. I kept nervously climbing up the beam and made it to the roof line. I sat there for a minute and was proud of how far I’d climbed. I looked back at the line and all the Colemans down there and pondered what fun they must have had growing up. I narrowed my eyes at the pitch of the roof and realized Chuck was nuts… but in all the best ways. He had just leveled up in my book in a major way. Pushing forward without fear. Lord, help me to be more like Chuck.

Chuck was the first boy after 4 sisters, so his arrival was a joyous one. Mother was especially pleased as our father had said he would keep having children till he got a boy. David came along next so Chuck had a "partner in crime!" That's good because the sisters spoiled both of them. Well, they were so cute and adorable!
The first link of the sibling chain has been called home, but his presence, love, and memories live on in our hearts.
Chuck, you were a bblessing.Hug Mama for me!
