Charles (Chuck) Hall, loved and esteemed by all who knew him, passed away unexpectedly at home on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, at age 76. Chuck was born in Scioto, Ohio on January 4, 1944 and was one of six children born to Virgil and Ivory Hall.

His humble beginnings made him resilient, shaped his rigorous work ethic, and bestowed him the courage to venture out into the world on his own at an early age. He served in the United States Air Force from 1963 to 1967 and afterwards spent decades dredging our harbors, the last 25 years at Manson Construction Company with his brother and best friend, Larry, by his side. His co-workers were his extended family whom he inspired by his loyalty, sincerity, humor, and dependability.

Chuck was married 35 years to Melanie who was the love of his life and together they suffered the loss of their son, Martin Kemsley, two years ago. His most treasured possessions were his children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews whom he patiently regarded with unconditional love and kindness.

He will be forever missed by his devoted wife, Melanie; son, Matt Kemsley and wife Paola: daughter, Kristin Henderson and husband Tory; and daughter in-law, Shana Kemsley; grandchildren, Simeonne, Ryann, Noah, Katie, Tyler, Paige and Samuel; and his nieces and nephews, Drake, Dean, Kai, Cameron, Caitlin, Kendall, Jacob, Eli, Tyler, Kayla, and Ryan. They will remember how special their Popi was and will be comforted by memories of his selflessness and generosity.

Services to honor Chuck will be held at the Ted Mayr Funeral Home, on Saturday, February 15, 2020, at 11:00am.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Make a Wish Foundation.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Ted Mayr Funeral Home, 3150 Loma Vista Road, Ventura, CA 93003. Condolences may be sent to TedMayrFuneralHome.com.

ADD A MEMORY

I remember sitting on the front porch as a kid waiting for him to pick me up in the old white ford. We’d always stop at the car wash first of course, then McDonalds and then he’d take me to the job site and let me run the dozers and loaders. One time it was just Chuck, Larry and myself. They sat me on the tailgate of the work truck, got in the cab and started driving. After a little while they realized I wasn’t on the tailgate nor was I down the beach chasing after them. They stopped and finally saw me dangling from the tailgate by my clothes. I kept saying “uncle Larwy your cwazy!” (For some reason that always made Chuck laugh over the years) They were so worried that I was hurt, probably worried I would tell my parents or something (haha) but when they put me in the cab of the truck with them, they kept asking if I was ok and I just looked at them both and said “can I drive!?” they just started laughing and looked at one another probably in a sense relief.

I’ll never forget when Chuck gave me my very own Manson Construction jacket with his Dredge on the back, and a Manson hard hat so that I could be him (A Dredger) for Halloween. I even put a damn pillow in the front of my jacket so I could “fill it out” better and look more like Chuck. I think I even asked one of my sisters to draw a beard on me. I wanted to be just like Uncle Chuck when I grew up.

Driving that old ford around the neighborhood on Chuck’s lap was my favorite. I was so happy when that old ford became my first truck. I would proudly tell everyone “that’s my Uncle Chuck’s old truck! It’s the first truck I ever drove when I was 2! My Uncle Chuck would let me sit on his lap and drive around the neighborhood and now I get to drive it.”

Sadly I hadn’t seen Chuck in over 3 years and never really got to say goodbye. But Chuck will always have a special place in my heart and there isn’t a day that passes where I don’t think of him. Rest In Peace “Uncle Guck” I’ll never forget you.

When Chuck was in a room things felt different. His presence brought a feeling of goodness and ease to it. His smile was like the sunshine because of his kindness and warmth. He will be very much missed although we know he is in a better place, waiting for us to join him and share a chuckle.

Katie with her Popi, at his work, a few months ago. He was the most wonderful dad and grandfather. So dedicated to us and our happiness. He was humble and kind. A true treasure. I will miss him and his guidance greatly. Love you Forever Chuck.
