Charles S. Burns 1959-2017

17078Born in March of 1959, Charles Stewart Burns came into the world kicking and screaming, and he did not slow for fifty-eight years.  The son of Charles Blaine Burns and June Lowe Wray, he was the boy in the middle of four sisters. Chuck attended Stephen Decatur High School. While maybe not the best student, he was definitely an outstanding musician and athlete.

After high school he enlisted in the Marines and served his country for the next 4 years. Like everything in Chuck’s life he did not do this half way. He loved his country and the Marine Corp.  In 1981 he married the love of his life, Rhonda Rodgers. Together they brought two beautiful daughters into the world. Chuck was devoted to the girls, and when they grew up and got married, he embraced their husbands. His four grandchildren were the light of his life.

Though he excelled in every sport he played, his real passion was on the ball field. He was born with a bat and ball in his hands. He was a true inspiration and asset to every team he encountered.

He was a first rate electrician, an outstanding softball player, a remarkable musician, and an avid hunter. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and friend. He was a mentor, leader, and team player, and will truly be missed by many.

He was preceded in death by his father (Charles B. Burns) and his stepfather (Harry C. Wray).

He was survived by his wife Rhonda K. Burns, daughter and son-in-law, Lyndsey & David Herring, daughter and son-in-law, Tonya & Shane Melhorn, grandchildren, Stasia, Owen, Gwendolyn, and Daxton, mother, June Lowe Wray, and  sisters, Carol Gibbons, Robyn (Dennis)Ballweg, Susie ( Mark) Smith, Angela Lake, Theresa (Chris) Ford, brother, Chris (Katie) Burns.
