A candle has been lit!

Charlie and his family were such an integral part of the Avondale neighborhood and the Mormon church. My sincere sympathies to all who loved him and will miss his presence.

Christen & Zackary -We loved your father. He always looked after Timothy on the football field from the Dawgs little league to BC- We send you both our love- Many found memories of Charlie Jung- he lived a fulfilling life!

- Jacqueline, Brittany & Timothy Dotson, Huntington Beach, CA

My condolences to the family. So many years have gone by since 1974, and we all went our separate ways in life, but I will never forget the kindness and concern you and your family had shown for me in a time of need. Renting your small garage apartment, playing mens league basketball at the Mormon church and meeting your many church friends, helped me through a pivotal time in my life. Thanks for everything Charlie. May you Rest In Peace my friend and your memory be a blessing to us all… Danny

Coach Jung was one of my favorite people throughout my years at BC. Anytime I needed a laugh or wanted to play Coach Jung was a person I could count on at any moment. Honestly if it wasn’t for Coach Jung I probably wouldn’t have played football and got to Duke. He was such a pure nice man and i’ll always remember him for the impact he had on my life and my future.

- Trent Broadnax, Savannah, GA

I am new to the BC family and did not know Coach Jung personally, but I saw how his passing affected his players and his fellow coaches. I heard stories of his encouragement and his sometimes tough love. My condolences go out to his family and my prayers are lifting for the Lord's comfort and peace during this time of grief.

I was sorry to see that Charlie had passed. Charlie was younger than me, but I remember him playing football my senior year at Savannah High. I use to run in to Charlie from time to time, always nice and full of life. Prayers to his family, and may God bless each of you.

Your father/grandfather was a ray of sunshine - he always greeted us with kindness and joy. He was a unique special soul. We will miss him.

We grew up in Avondale with the Jungs. Charlie was a very kind and compassionate man, he loved his family, his work and all kinds of sports. He was a good man and he will be missed by all who lived him.

- Miriam Jordan Cribbs, Savannah , GA

I knew Charlie in high school many years ago, and later he coached 3 of my grandsons at Benedictine. He could be funny and he could be tough, but IMO a great role model for young men. He will be missed.

- Collins family, Savannah, GA

I am sooo sorry to learn of Charlie's passing. I loved chatting and laughing with him at church. He was in my life since I was a little girl. I will surely miss him, but I know he is with his loving parents. My deepest sympathy goes out to his entire family .

Comfort and blessings to the family in their loss.

I knew Charlie at Savannah High School. I was a year ahead of him, and always thought he was such a nice person. My sympathy to his family. God Bless You All!

- Jan Daniel Crawford, Va. Beach, Va.

I was privileged to work my last fire with Charlie after many years of service on the Savannah Fire Department. He was one of the most professional and dedicated firefighters I have ever known. I also umpired softball and baseball with him over the years. I considered him a friend and a great co-worker. We had a saying in the fire department about Charlie. If you didn't like him, there was something wrong with you. His last act of kindness to me was the day before he went to be with our Lord. He let me lean on him while he escorted me into and out of the funeral home of another dearly departed friend of ours, Carl Hendricks. Even though he was in great pain from a kidney stone, he didn't hesitate to offer me help. That was my friend Charlie. God Bless his family. Daniel D.

what a great person charlie was in life. we will certainly miss him and that smile he shared with everyone. i grew up with charlie in the avondale sub division. we play some sports together and as we grew older i played and he umpired. rest in peace and i will see you in heaven

- gary hodges, savannah, ga

I am saddened to hear of the passing of this great man. I was a junior at Windsor Forest playing football when I first met coach Jung. He had a great sense of humor and could motivate you in a way that none other could do. He made you laugh but in the laughter, he'd change your prospective on how to be successful. After many years had gone by I saw him coaching Benedictine and we laughed after I told him, " you went to the enemy ". We maintained a great friendship and I will certainly miss running into him from time to time. My heartfelt and sincere condolences to the Jung family. But earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. Rest in His presence coach. All is well now.

- Vernon Howell, Savannah, Georgia

Grew up in Avondale with Charlie. He was always such a pleasure to be around. We could go years without seeing each other but when we did it seemed like it had only been yesterday. He was one that never missed a beat. SHS class of 1966 will miss him and his great organizing skills. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of his family, his firehouse family and to all that called him a friend. Debbie Manly White, Savannah Ga

I first met Coach Jung as a student at BC, however I knew his ex wife Theresa and kids Christen and Zach prior to attending BC. I got to know Coach Jung as a student. He was such a nice guy always willing to give advice, lend a hand. To Coach Jung's family, I offer my most sincere heartfelt condolences and prayers.

- Stephen C. Grotto II, Savannah , GA
