Charles Angus “Chuck” Rhodes was born May 20, 1957, and joined his parents on July 2, 2023. Chuck was predeceased by his parents Rufus and Joyce Rhodes and his sister Mary Beth Busby and his brothers in love, Robert Murrell, Bobby Pearce and Randy Busby. He leaves behind his wife Diana Rhodes, children Melissa Hurdle and husband Daniel, Christy Burwell and husband John, Charlie Rhodes and wife Laura, Deidra Roberts and husband Daniel, sisters Vicky Pearce and Carolyn Murrell and brother Tony Rhodes and wife Misty. He was blessed with 14 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, cousins and aunts and uncles.

Chuck was a wonderful husband, father and Papa. He and Diana were blessed with 45 years of marriage before he left us and the hole he left behind is simply massive. He had a fun-loving personality and loved his family passionately. His love encompassed his in-law children so they always felt like one of his own. He would stand between the devil himself to secure his family’s well-being and safety.

Chuck was rarely caught without his fishing pole in his hand and everything he wanted for Christmas was fishing related. He was a fisherman from the time he could walk. No fish was safe, and no lake was ever too challenging, well almost anyway, as he always regretted not catching that 10-pound bass. Bass fishing was a passion and he won so many tournaments and received so many trophies and plaques in his life, a whole wall in the house was covered just trying to show them all off.

 

Chuck was a great storyteller and loved to scare the kids, whether they were his or anybody else’s. Chuck had the ability to befriend any and all animals and at times, they preferred his company to their owners. Little children were drawn to him. He had an uncanny way about him that they understood which we all know to be called love.

 

Even though we have to say goodbye to Chuck physically, he will remain in our hearts and minds, and we hope everyone remembers him with happiness and love.
