Charles F. James Jr.

Charles F. James, Jr., affectionately known as Chuck, passed away on July 16, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of love and kindness. Born on May 19, 1949, Chuck lived a life filled with compassion, dedication, and joy.
Chuck was a devoted husband, father, and friend. His gentle spirit and loving personality touched the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing him. Throughout his 50 years of marriage, Chuck remained a constant source of love and support to his beloved wife, Denise James. Their bond was a testament to the power of true partnership and unwavering commitment.
In addition to his loving wife, Chuck is survived by his son, Charles (Trey) James, III, who meant the world to him. Chuck cherished the time he spent with Trey, and their shared moments created a lifetime of cherished memories. Chuck also leaves behind his brother, Ronald (Ronnie) D. James (Kathy), Goddaughter Margaret (Maggie) Newman Roesch (Marty), his faithful fur baby and companion, Georgee, and many beloved cousins.
Chuck's journey of education began at Daniel High in Central, South Carolina, where he graduated and set the foundation for a successful future. He then pursued his passion for business administration at Central Wesleyan College, also located in Central, South Carolina, earning his degree. Chuck's dedication to learning and personal growth was evident throughout his life.
As an avid sports enthusiast, Chuck loved passionately rooting for the Clemson Tigers. He followed their journey and faithfully cheered for their victories every season. His unwavering support for his beloved team was a reflection of his spirited nature and unwavering loyalty.
Chuck's professional career revolved around the world of accounting. He began his journey at TRW in Martinez, Georgia, and later ventured into the field of aviation at Garrett Aviation in Augusta, Georgia. Chuck's expertise and dedication led him to Savannah, Georgia, where he served as the Director of Business at Gulfstream Aerospace until his well-deserved retirement.
Outside of his professional life, Chuck found joy in various hobbies. He had a deep passion for fishing, tennis, and golf, relishing in the tranquility and camaraderie that these activities offered. As a man of faith, Chuck was a member at Isle of Hope Methodist Church. Yet, above all, Chuck's greatest joy stemmed from the love he shared with his wife, Denise, and their son, Trey. Their happiness and well-being were always his top priorities.
