West Columbia -  A memorial service for Charles Owens “Chuck” Lundy, III will be held at 3PM on Sunday, January 7, 2018 at St. James Lutheran Church.  The family will receive friends at the church following the service.

Chuck, the eldest son of Emma Rawl Snelgrove and the late Charles O. Lundy, Jr, was born on January 8, 1958 and went to his heavenly home on November 27, 2017.  He had been in declining heath for some time.

Chuck was a graduate of Airport High School, USC College of Journalism, and Midlands Technical College.  He worked in Respiratory Therapy for nearly 20 years as a health care provider and an educator.

He served three years active duty in the U. S. Naval Reserve onboard the U.S.S. Forrestal (CVA-59) and as a member of the commissioning crew (plank owner) of the U.S.S. John D. Rodgers (DD-983).  He also served in the S.C. Army National Guard.

He was a member of Fellowship Baptist Church where he served as a Deacon, Sunday School teacher and on various committees.

Chuck is survived by his daughter, Emily Hannah, who he loved with all his heart.    Other survivors include his Mother; stepfather: Ralph Snelgrove; brothers: Barry (Billie) Lundy, Ricky (Nancy) Lundy, and Gary (Kristie) Lundy; sisters: Cheryl (Danny) Austin and Jimi Rabon, along with beloved nieces, nephews and cousins.  Chuck was predeceased by his grandparents: Hortense and Charles O “Charlie” Lundy, Sr, Eron and Thomas E “Bus” Rawl, Sr; and his niece, April Austin Shaw.

Chuck was the family historian and loved to tell a good tale.  He never met a stranger, and loved to make people laugh.   He also loved hunting and the great outdoors.

Memorials may be made to St. James Lutheran Church Food Pantry, 1358 S. Lake Drive, Lexington, SC 29073, or to the charity of one’s choice.

Sara and I was so shocked at hearing of Chuck's passing. Chuck was a gentle Giant and his heart was as big as he was. My Family and I loved him very much. Dad, Jacob and I enjoyed our times so much with Chuck hunting. Chuck was Gods Voice at Family gathering and at all places. Chuck had a gift to be able to communicate to everyone. My heart goes out to My Aunt Emma and Ralph, brothers an sisters and all of the other family. Chuck will be greatly missed but I know in my heart he is with the Lord. This world was made a better place by Chuck's Life. We will cherish our times with Chuck forever. God Bless everyone.

Our hearts broke when we heard the news. Chuck was such a wonderful Christian man, we especially appreciate the time he spent teaching youth Sunday School to our son. May God's loving kindness and comfort help your family, through this very sad time. Psalms 29:11

I wanted to reach out to you during this sad time to offer my condolences. While nothing will completely take away your grief, by meditating on God's promises found in the Bible, you can find real hope and the strength to keep going. I have found the scripture at Isaiah 25:8 to be especially comforting. Here it promises that God "will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces."

Growing up across the street from Chuck's Parents and Grandparents, I remember him very well as a child and have fond memories of all the Lundy family. My deepest sympathy to his family. Sincerely, Glenn Miller, Spartanburg, SC
