Chuck Saxon, a cherished husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, went home to his Lord and Savior on January 3, 2024, in Columbus, Georgia, at the age of 61. Born on February 7, 1962, in Valley, Alabama, Chuck was a man whose generosity and kindness touched the lives of all who knew him.
Chuck is survived by his loving wife, Denise Saxon, and their children: Britney Lusk (Kyle), Chaz Saxon (Brittany), Jondell Saxon, Tyler Saxon, Miracle Bolen (Alex), and Daniel Arledge (Rachael). He was a proud grandfather to Jaci, Paisleigh, Ryder, Gideon, Kenedi, and Jax. His sister, Gyda Simms, along with a host of nieces and nephews, will also hold his memory dear. Chuck was preceded in death by his parents, Johnny and Doris Norred; his father, Bernard Saxon; and his sister, Gail Shephard; and brother, Steve Saxon.
A long-time member of Fairview Baptist Church in Columbus, Georgia, Chuck's faith was a cornerstone of his life. He relished the fellowship and took every opportunity to share his love for the Lord with others. His commitment to his faith was evident in the way he lived his life, always putting others before himself.
Chuck's passion for life was matched by his love for his family. He was a devoted husband and father, always ensuring that his family felt his unwavering support and love. His grandchildren were the light of his life, and he cherished every moment spent with them.
An avid fan of Auburn University, Chuck's spirited cry of "WAR EAGLE" could be heard during every game, and his enthusiasm was infectious. His hobbies included repairing electronics and woodworking, skills he often used to help others. His handiwork was not only a testament to his talent but also to his desire to make the world around him a better place.
Chuck's selfless nature extended beyond his family and church. He was always the first to lend a helping hand to anyone in need, embodying the true spirit of community. His frequent trips to Goodwill were not just about finding treasures but also about connecting with people and sharing moments of joy and laughter. Often, when friends or family would ask Chuck how he was doing, he would happily respond, “I’m Blessed by the Best, and confused by the rest!”.
Those who knew Chuck will remember him as a man of great character—generous, kind, and selfless. His legacy is one of love, service, and the simple joy of living a life dedicated to the well-being of others.
As we say goodbye to Chuck Saxon, we celebrate a life beautifully lived and a heart that gave so much to so many. He will be deeply missed, but his spirit will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to have known him.
A memorial service for Chuck will be held on Saturday, January 13th, 2024, at 12:00 Noon (EST) at Fairview Baptist Church in Columbus, Georgia. Pastor Freddie Johnson will officiate. Chuck’s family will receive friends following the service at the church.
