Charles S. Huey

CHARLES S. HUEY, age 73, beloved husband of Margaret Neville; loving father of John (wife Victoria), Douglas (wife Carrie-Ann) and Kathryn and dear friend to their mother, Kathryn Matthews; devoted grandfather of Allyson, Madelyn, Elliott, Ethan Charles, Zachary, Jacob and Avery; cherished son of the late Virginia Huey (nee Tisdale); dearest cousin of Paul Butler (wife Virginia); dear friend to many. U.S. Army Veteran.

Charles S. Huey was born in Dothan, Alabama on February 9, 1946 and passed away on April 8, 2019. He was a resident of Mentor for 40 years, formerly South Euclid. Charles was a member of Old South Church in Kirtland where he volunteered in their food pantry and also served as a support group facilitator with the Alzheimer’s Association. Charles graduated from Carroll High School in Ozark, Alabama. He earned his Bachelor’s degree from Georgia Tech where he was a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, and earned his MBA at the University of Virginia. He was a U.S. Army Veteran having served in South Korea. The major part of his career was spent as a marketing manager with General Electric.  Charles enjoyed playing both the guitar and piano, often writing his own songs, telling a long story, and traveling the world with Margaret, the love of his life. He liked golf, watching college football and was a huge Browns and Indians fan but never could take sides between Alabama and Auburn. He will be remembered as a caring, deep soul and will be greatly missed.

  3. So sorry for your loss. I worked with Chuck for many years at GE. He was a great guy! I will also miss him much.
    Played golf with him many times and he was in our GE retiree card games.
    May god be with you in these trying times!

  4. So, so sorry for your loss. Chuck had such a good heart and kind man.
    I worked with Chuck at GE and we were both members of Old South and worked together many times at the food pantry.
    Please know that my and many others’ prayers are with you during this time.

  5. Pat and Sheldon Firem

    Our deepest sympathy to you, Margaret, to his children, and to Charles’ entire family. Our hearts go out to you.

  6. So sorry for your loss. What a great guy, super fun to be around and always ready to give advice and help.

  7. My heart is heavy. I have known Margaret for many years. Such a wonderful friend. Many years later I met Chuck since he facilitated the Alzeheimer support group while I was caretaking my dear mother. What an explosive couple. So very happy for them. As a widow when my children were in grade school, I know the shock, suffering with grace by my husband, caregiving duties willingly and lovingly given by a dedicated spouse. We were blessed with years together with Bob and Chuck. . The best years of our lives. May they rest in eternal peace with God’s loving arms around all of us in unity and love.

Leave Your Condolence
