Most people knew Chuck from A Kut Above Barber Shop where he was co-owner and barber with Bruce Childress for over 40 years. Chuck also was a real estate agent at RE/MAX Express in Godfrey for 12 years. When he wasn’t working, he was outside. He loved golfing, boating, skiing, and yard work. Chuck loved people and seemed to never meet a stranger. He always had a story to tell or a joke to share and always a listening ear for everyone.

Chuck was a patient of Dr. Gerald Linette and one of the first three patients to receive Immunotherapy for Melanoma Skin Cancer for malignant melanoma at Siteman Cancer Center. He received his first of three injections but lost his battle before he received the last two. As much as he was looking forward to the potential success of this treatment, he knew that donating his body to research in hopes of helping others was equally as important.

Come enjoy a day of golf, love, and laughter in remembrance of Chuck and help support the research to end Melanoma Cancer!
