GARNER, NC – Charles “Chuckles” Sawyer passed away at Kindred Hospital, Greensboro, NC Sunday morning, June 3, 2018, from injuries suffered in an automobile accident on Oct. 4, 2017. He fought a long and courageous battle with his loving family at his side.
Born June 15, 1940 in Harpersfield, NY, he was the eldest of three children born to the late Charles and Naomi Kellum Sawyer.
At his request, there will be no funeral, but there will be a “Celebration of his Life” later in the summer.
Chuckles graduated from Oneonta Senior High School, Oneonta, NY and the certification program for Production Management at Rochester Institute of Technology; an accomplishment of which he was very proud.
He is survived by his much loved wife, Andrea; son, Brian and wife, Stacy; sisters, Teenia Christensen and
Toni Sines; step-sister, Maryanne Champlin and husband, Craig; several grand and great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, as well as his especially beloved dogs, Thor and Baxter.
In addition to his parents and much loved grandmother, Louise, he was preceded in death by his son, Shane.



A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.


  1. Kristi, Dan and Colin

    Chuck you will be dearly missed. I’ll never forget you being the best neighbor a person could ask for and then you and Andrea opened up your hearts and treated us as family. Your kind heart and words of wisdom meant the world to us! If not for you and Andrea and your family we wouldn’t have had the opportunities we have been given. We will never forget our little vacation. You and Andrea gave our family the first opportunity to have a wonderful family vacation and to see the ocean! You treated our son as one of your own grandchildren and he loved spending time chatting with you and talking about the WWE. Charlie Chuckles you will forever be in our hearts and never forgotten. You were the kindest, fun loving man and you touched so many people. Until we meet again we love you.
