Chuck was a man of deep faith and a beloved son, brother, father, friend and most especially Pop to his 8 grandchildren. Chuck served the Lord locally and abroad in missions and evangelism for most of his life.
Chuck worked with the Missions Team at Calvary Baptist Church in Winston Salem, NC from the time he was in his early 40s until just a few years ago. He made over 50 trips to Kenya, Africa. He had a passion to spread the Good News of Salvation through Christ to the African people and to follow through with Christian education, mentorship and friendship.
He served in the US Army during the Korean War from April 25, 1954 to April 10, 1956. After an honorable discharge, he married the love of his life, Edna Mae Parisi and began to build their life together in Philadelphia, PA. In 1972 Chuck and Edna and their four children moved to Winston Salem, NC for Dad to pursue his career with McLean Trucking Company.
