Charles Ralph Feaster Jr “Chuck”, 83 of Danville, KY passed away, peacefully, on Thursday, February 16th, 2023 with his family by his side. He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Elsie Feaster, and his son, Patrick Scott Feaster.
Chuck is survived by his wife, Brenda Feaster; his children, Ron (Missy) Feaster, Michael (Beth) Feaster, Michelle (John) Newby, and Tyler (Jennifer) Feaster; seven grandchildren, Andrew Feaster, Zachary Feaster, Erin Wright, Kelsey Currier, Jacob Newby, Logan Feaster, and Connor Feaster; and five great-grandchildren.
Chuck enlisted in the Marine Corps after graduating high school. The Corps had a profound influence on him that shaped his beliefs and outlook on life. Honor, Courage, and Commitment are virtues not lost on him as he embodied these traits in his family life and with friends. Once a Marine- Always a Marine he loved to say. The Corps insignia adorned everything from clothes, hats, wallets, vehicles, boats, 4-wheelers, golf clubs, Christmas decorations, and the entire Man Cave. Sargent “Devildog” took immense pride in being one of The Few. The Proud.
Chuck’s professional career with Belden and Cooper Industries swept him across the states and world experiencing the smoky mountains of North Carolina, the carousing Cajun lifestyle of Louisiana, Big bass and bucks in Arkansas and Kentucky, the best karaoke nights Tokyo had to offer, the scorching hot tamales in Mexico City and to roaming the golf courses of Kentucky and Florida. Retirement was happily spent migrating to Florida during the winter months and hugging grand and great-grandkids when home.
Chuck believed if there was a job to do, it needed to be done once and done right. He was a perfectionist and proudly applied it to everything he did. There was not a job he couldn’t do or a task he couldn’t handle. When he didn’t know how to do it, he simply learned how. On behalf of all his children we thank him, so ever gratefully, as we would not be who we are today without him.
Chuck was always trying to find ways to bring his family together. Telling stories and often speaking the phrase “You all better remember these stories so they can be told when I am gone”. He shared what he loved with his family and passed down traditions that will be carried on for generations to come. His passion for the outdoors, golfing, camping, hunting, and fishing has been forever adopted by those who call him Husband, Dad, and Grandpa. Chuck’s anecdotes and colorful idioms will continue to fall on the ears of future family generations, carrying on the amazing man he has become. Semper Fi Pops!
