I met Chuck on the first day of my freshman year at Clemson. We studied together every day and worked at UPS at night. We commuted together in his blue Opel to Clemson until the engine blew. For the last year, he rode in the backseat of my Karmin Ghia, which was not an easy task. A great guy. None better.

When I first met Chuck at Foothills almost 7 years ago, we quickly developed a friendship through a number of similarities between the two of us: similar ages and growing up in the same “era”, a similar appreciation of music particularly the early classic rock variety, both have 2 children, similar professional backgrounds (both accountants/CPA’s who worked is small to mid-sized companies) and a Hilton Head connection. One difference was regarding music, Chuck actually could play music whereas I was limited to listening pleasure but still enjoyed every minute of it. We also both had similar outlooks on enjoying life, with a general “carpe diem” attitude. Chuck was always more “out there” than I was, on the go making something happen, often times for someone else’s benefit. Chuck was certainly a unique individual in so many positive ways. We never got to spend as much time together as I would have liked. I will miss him dearly.

Chuck was a sweet and unique fellow with a great sense of humor. Debbie was my college roommate at Furman. We continued our lives in Greenville. When I became alone, Chuck would always have Debbie ask me to join their family dinners. Chuck loved the outdoors, yard work, and watching his boys swim and play soccer. Chuck was the kindest man I knew. I pray God will be with the Mitchell family.
