 Charles “Chuck” Lee Moon, 76, passed away on September 12, 2017 at the Cottage in the Meadow. Chuck was born on March 2, 1941 in Des Moines, Iowa, the son of Charles and Marie Moon. He grew up in Arkansas, where he attended and graduated from Huntsville High School. Right out of high school Chuck enlisted with the Navy, serving two enlistments. During his time in the Navy he was deployed to Vietnam during a time of heavy fighting. Chuck met his wife, Esther, in September of 1993, and they were married shortly after. They just celebrated 24 years of marriage on the 2nd of September. 

 
Chuck was devoted to his family and enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren. He loved to take them to see the Mariners play. He loved camping at Tower Rock. Chuck was a volunteer firefighter for more than 20 years and was also a certified EMT. He enjoyed helping those in need whenever he could. One of his prized possessions was his Martin guitar, playing it any chance he got. He enjoyed playing country western music, as well as listening to country and gospel music. He was a diehard Mariners fan, going to as many games as he could. At one game, on August 26, 2015, Chuck was watching his beloved Mariners and caught a foul ball, bare handed, that Nelson Cruz hit into the first base side.  
 
Chuck is survived by his wife, of 24 years, Esther. He is also survived by his daughter Jena (Charles) Passut, his step-children, Rebecca (Dean) Humphrey, Rochelle Owen, and Russell (Janet) Owen.
