On October 31, 2021, John Charles (Chuck) Mealy (76) finished his Father's work for him in this world and was taken to his eternal home. His parents, Charles D. and Margaret E. Mealy, preceded him in death. He leaves behind a wife of 54 years, Betty, and two sons: Mark (Jennifer) Mealy of Central, SC, and Greg (Wendele) of LaFontaine, IN. In addition, he treasured grandchildren Jacob, son of Mark and Jennifer and Bryn, Gabriel, and Rowyn, children of Greg and Wendele, and one brother, Larry (Linda) of Hartford City, IN.
Chuck was a member of ALIVE Wesleyan Church, serving as organist for its traditional service as long as he was able.
In fulfillment of preparation for his life's work, Chuck was graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with a bachelor's degree in Music, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, NC, with a master's degree in Music Education, and the University of Sarasota (now Argosy University) with a doctorate in Human Services Administration. Following service as a musical director in churches and Bethany Bible College (Canada), he served as Director of Admissions at Indiana Wesleyan University, followed by service at Southern Wesleyan University as Director of Admissions and later, Director of Conference Services. After retirement, he enjoyed many years of volunteer work until physical health precluded further involvement.
Appreciation especially to all the medical personnel who so graciously cared for him during the years of declining health. Recently, Hospice of the Foothills (at Cottingham House) cared for him with such a compassionate, professional, and Godly focus during his last days. Thank you.
A Celebration of Life service will be held at ALIVE Wesleyan Church on Saturday, November 6, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. Family will receive friends at 10:00 a.m. in the auditorium. Memorials may be directed to ALIVE Wesleyan Church, Project 20; 136 Chastain Road, Central, SC 29630.
