    A great loss for us all. Chuck always had a smile and a joke for me. We at the JHS football and baseball programs owe a deep debt to “Chuckles” for his tireless dedication to the kids. We’ve lost a loyal and honest friend. Condolences to the Myers family for your loss.

  • Mini Daub Posted August 5, 2020 12:46 PM

    So little time to get to know my brother that I finally found. He welcomed me into the family with open arms as if I was always there. Although I didn’t want to see you in pain any longer, I regret we did not find each other long ago. I will cherish the time we did have and sharing of our lives. Tell our Mom, I think I have found everyone. See you there.

    • Pam Posted October 25, 2020 1:25 PM

      I’m so glad He got to meet you. It is a shame there could not have been more visits.

  • Jack Meadows Posted August 5, 2020 4:41 PM

    I had the privilege of serving with Chuck in the 308th Missile Wing. He was highly respected by his peers. A true patriot and military professional, a Cold War Hero. RIP Chuck.

    What a wonderful man! He was a wonderful role model for many young men, including my son Josh. Chuck was a joy to know. I appreciated his input and help as we watched and guided our boys growing into men. My prayers are with all of the Meyers family. Big hugs to you all.

  • Michael Foley Posted August 6, 2020 8:43 AM

    Chuck was my first room mate When I arrived at LRAFB. We were friends who lost touch after we both retired from our careers. Much to my regret. It is no surprise that he touched the lives of so many people in such a positive way. To Pam and your family I share your Sadness. May God bless you all.

  • Donald Beeks Posted August 6, 2020 1:07 PM

    Chuck was my Branch Superintendent when I was head of the Missile Maintenance Branch of the 308 MIMS. He was an outstanding leader and technician and a good friend. He will be missed by many.

  • George Hebling Posted August 6, 2020 7:04 PM

    I worked with Charlie while we served with the 308 MIMS. He was always a good and decent man who honestly cared for people. He will be missed by all his friends.

      Thank you David, it’s so true how much he cared for the people he trained and worked w/.

  • Todd Mead Posted August 7, 2020 8:17 AM

    I had the great privilege to proudly serve with Charlie in the 308 MIMS. He was a good friend and a great mentor. He always took care of all his technicians ensuring we had what we needed.. which included many words of encouragement or a pat on the back. Godspeed Charlie.

  • Ardy Tackett Posted August 7, 2020 9:05 AM

    I met Charlie in 1970 while working in scheduling. I started working with him in 1973 when i cross trained into Missile maintenance at Little Rock AFB. He was a good man who helped new airman learn the job. Pam and i went to school at Hot Springs High so we have known each other since we were kids. Good wife and great mom. I will miss Charlie a lot. He was a great friend and good man to all. See you on the other side.

    • Pam Posted October 25, 2020 1:38 PM

      Thank you Jack. He talked about y’all a lot. Bailing hay, chopping wood. Things he would not had a chance to learn in life. Then when we brought Desha to pet you cows. What a blessing you were for him.

  • Sheryl Bollen Spieldenner Posted December 22, 2020 5:57 PM

    Christmas is upon us and I try to reach out to old friends that I haven’t heard from in a while, sadly after some research I found this…I knew he was battling cancer but just knew he was going to beat it…he was a fighter. Pam, I’m so very sorry that you have lost your precious husband. He was one of the best bosses I ever had and I was blessed to know him. My heart goes out to you and the children and grandchildren. So very sorry for your loss.
