Charles Milton Stallard

December 27, 1957 ‒ August 16, 2019

Mansfield, Ohio

Charles Milton Stallard, son of Clinton & Avis Stallard was born on Dec 27, 1957 in Mansfield.

Chuck worked at the San-Dar Smorgasbord, Possum Run Greenhouse, and Therm-O-Disc, graduating from Clear Fork and attending Mt. Union College. As a youngster, he enjoyed walking the land, exploring rivers & creeks, calculating input & output of bodies of water, often accompanied by friends, family, and a willing dog.

Having an interest in mountains, rivers, populations, sports, past history & current events, asking for a world almanac for many birthdays was all that he wanted. Having a passion for playing basketball, Chuck used every opportunity to practice and engage in games and was honorable mention for all-Ohio.

As a juvenile diabetic, life began to throw at him many challenges. Receiving a kidney/pancreas transplant in 2002, he gained more time to defy the odds. An uphill battle all the way, he relied on his faith in the Lord Jesus for strength. Chuck’s love of reading & studying the Bible often found him talking with others about the scriptures. He was close to many of his 1976 classmates, enjoying their conversations and company among several other friends that were staples in his life.

Chuck’s “final graduation” was on August 16, 2019 in Newark when he went home at last to be with Jesus.

He is survived by siblings: David (Cindy) Stallard, Cheryl Haynes, Steve (Becky) Stallard, Edgar Stallard, and Virginia Haynes; half-brother Jerry Allen, along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Chuck was preceded in death by half-brother Dennis Adkins and brothers-in-law Don Haynes and Rick Haynes.

A memorial gathering will be held by his family 1-3 pm September 29, 2019 in Palm Park in Bellville. All are welcome to attend and remember Chuck’s life. Snyder Funeral Homes is honored to serve Chuck’s family and encourage you to share a memory with them at SnyderFuneralHomes.com

  • So sorry to hear of Chuck’s passing. He is now among the angels and with his God. Rest in peace, Chuck.

  • My deepest condolences to the family!! Chuck was an amazing man. I don’t think I knew anyone that was so caring and kind. My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

  • It was indeed an honor to have known Chuck and watched him play high school basketball as part of the famed Watson(jerry) & Stallard guard duo. His every action displayed his love of the game. As an adult, his approach to life showed his love of Jesus. There is no doubt that when he met his Lord and Savior he was told well done my good and faithful servant.
    Chuck Stallard: A profile of courage.

    • thank you for sharing that Jerry. I had the awesome privilege of watching Jerry and Chuck play together in basketball and play backyard football during recess with both of them only to Marvel at the athletic skill and the teamwork that developed between Chuck and Jerry. It’s rewarding to hear other people that enjoyed watching the talent and synergy between them. Chuck told me one time that he and Jerry did not need signs or play calls because they intuitively knew what the other one was going to do during a basketball game. It truly was a dynamic duo!

  • Chuck was a kind friend and a coworker, so very sorry to hear this Our prayers are with the family he left behind to be with our Heavenly Father

  • I remember watching him play basketball with one of the Watson boys. They were both so good and played well together, good teamwork!

  • A true christian warrior. I remember being amazed with all the knowledge he had about the length, depth, and height of mountains and rivers and so much more in Social Studies class at school. Now I know that was due to those world almanacs he wanted for his birthdays. Not too long ago when I seen Chuck at the hospital telling him my dad was not expected to live much longer he said I have a verse for you that gives me encouragement and it will do the same for you. That verse was Psalm 116:15. Through Chuck’s years of suffering, he never lost sight of God’s blessing or provision and shared that with others. He is now free of the suffering and rejoicing with his Lord and Savior.

  • Chuck is already sorely missed and for good reason. He was the kind of friend that even though he had many facts memorized, he remembered your birthday. Chuck was the kind of friend that when everybody else looked down on you or turned their back on you, Chuck was there for you. He was truly a humble servant to the Lord and as loyal of a friend as you could ever ask for.
    One time Chuck told me the most beautiful thing he ever saw was while he was out walking in the woods. He came up over the hill after an ice storm and there was icicles hanging everywhere. The sun shone through them and they were like mini prisms with tiny rainbows everywhere. Now, thankfully, Chuck is beholding far More Beauty than human eyes could ever take in. Thank you Lord for Chuck's life and his Eternal Walk With You!

    • Those ’74-76 basketball seasons were special for students and staff to follow–super years for Clear Fork!
      I was a fairly new English teacher at that time, cheering on the Colts.
      Then, after Chuck returned from Mount Union, he told me how Jesus had come into his life one day in his college dorm room. Forty years of close friendship and wonderful fellowship ensued. Kathleen and I (and our kids) praise the Lord Jesus for Chuck’s life, our friendship, and for his eternal life in glory! )Jerry and all, thanks for these testimonials to Chuck.)

  • Virginia and Cheryl and family , so very sorry , I am here for whatever you might need that I can do , love you ladies. Ruthie Swihart

  • Bill & I extend our condolences to the entire Stallard family and all of Chuck’s dear friends. May God shower all of you with His consolation and give you peace.
    Lifting you in prayer at this difficult time for your loss, but celebrating his spiritual presence with his Lord and Savior!

  • It is so sad to hear of Chucks passing. My prayers of peace are always for his family and friends. I went to church with them years ago and his brother Ed is a classmate. I remember his Mom and Dad and how down to earth they were. I have always enjoyed the families friendship. Like the rest, Chuck was always so kind . It is so good to hear of his fellowship with Jesus and despite his struggles in life he would still advocate in his faith. God Bless you all .

  • Chuck was a faithful follower of Jesus….one of the most amazing people We have had the blessing to know. ….such a selfless man.

    Virginia. we’re so sorry for your loss. It’s great that Chuck is at peace but hard for those he left behind. Let us know how we can help.
