CLARKSTON, WASH. Charles William James died May 18, 2013, with his family at his side.
Chuck was born March 13, 1943, in Youngstown,.
Growing up in the steel town of Girard, Chuck became a lifelong Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Browns fan, thus setting himself up for a life of sports disappointment.
Chuck enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in 1961. His father encouraged him to do so as a means to eventually earn a college degree with the G.I. Bill. Chuck intended to serve one four-year term. At his first duty station in Charleston, S.C., however, he met Judy Usher, also a young Air Force enlistee. According to Chuck, he lowered himself to go out with a teenager. She was 19 and he had turned 20 just three days before. They married three months later in June of 1963 and were together until the end.
Married and with two daughters born within the next two years, Chuck continued to serve in the Air Force until 1983. During his military career, he served overseas in Germany, Korea, and Thailand and within the United States in Nebraska, Arizona, and Montana. He retired from the Air Force as a Senior MSgt. and moved to McDonald. He worked at the U.S. Post Office for the next 20 years. During his time in Ohio, Chuck loved spending weekends and vacations at the family camp near DuBois, Pa. He spent lots of happy times there with his grandparents as a child and returned there as an adult as often as possible.
Chuck and Judy relocated to Clarkston in 2005, where he renewed his golf game, earning his personal best-ever score of 87 in the summer of 2012.
Chuck was known for his corny sense of humor, repeating stupid jokes ad nauseam. His daughters have vowed to carry on this tradition. He also loved to wind Judy up, but he loved her more than anything else.
Chuck has been described variously as the best father in the world, the best brother in the world, the best brother-in-law in the world, and the best boss in the world. His sister Georgeann Gatrell reports that the two never exchanged a harsh word between them.
He will be deeply and sadly missed, survived by Judy James, his wife of 49 years, 10 12 months; daughter and son-in-law Elena and Jerry Price Mars; daughter Elizabeth (Becky) James, all of Clarkston; sister and brother-in-law Georgeann and Harold Gatrell of Lisbon; sister and brother-in-law Lauretta and Tom Sok of Longview, Texas; brother and sister-in-law Ray and Shirley James of Warren; sister-in-law Jill Usher of Coupeville, Wash.; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
His parents, Charles (Chick) H. and Elizabeth June (Becky) James of Girard, and father- and mother-in-law, James (Jim) and Jean Usher of Clarkston, preceded him in death.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 25, at the First Presbyterian Church in Clarkston.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the church or to the Valley Art Center in Clarkston.

(James) Johnson of Upper Marlboro, Md.; three grandchildren, DeVon (Jenifer) Tucker of Columbus, KeTeris Tucker of Hawaii, and ALexus Johnson of Upper Marlboro; two sisters, Bertha Royster of Struthers and Dorothy Henry of Campbell; and a host of family and friends.
