R.I.P. Uncle Chuck


Charles D. Slater, "Chuck", of Williamstown, passed on Sunday, November 23, 2008 at his home with family at his side. Age 60 years.

Born in Butler, PA, formerly of Deptford, Chuck has lived in Williamstown since 1973. Chuck was a veteran of the U.S. Army 4th Infantry Division serving in the Vietnam War. Chuck was a coppersmith for the Local Union No. 19 in Phila., Pa. Chuck was an avid hunter and most of all he was dedicated and devoted to his family.

Beloved husband of Regina (nee Holmes). Loving son of Louise Stahl. Devoted father of Kris Slater and Chad (Katie) Slater. Dear brother of Terry (Linda) Slater, John (Diane) Stahl, Barb (late Michael) Meglino and Marilyn Stahl. Loving Poppy to Jacob, Peter and Noel. He will be missed by his many friends and family.

Relatives and friends are invited to his viewing on Friday 10:00-11:30 AM at St. Mary's R.C. Church, Main St. and Carroll Ave., Williamstown. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 11:30 AM. Interment Gloucester County Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Williamstown.

Above is from my uncle's Obituary. His battle with cancer ended, it spread throughout his body and it ended up taking his life. Uncle Chuck, I know you are in a better place now, and I am glad you don't have to suffer anymore. I feel horrible for my Aunt Jean who has lost her partner, and my cousins who have lost their loving father. I pray that God will give them the strength they need to get through this tough time.

He was a honorable man who fought for our country. He was a loving uncle and friend. He made us laugh and he entertained us with his stories. He was known as Uncle Chuck and he will be greatly missed!

May God give those who were near and dear to Chuck strength and courage to press on and fight the good fight of faith.

One day, death will be no more; and all who love the LORD will be united in the Blessed Hope, forever and ever. Rev. 21:3-4
