Charles “Chuck” Edward Ganaway Jr., 59, a resident of Bayou L’Ourse, passed away Saturday, September 28, 2019 at his home.
Chuck was born August 25, 1960, in Illinois, the son of Charles E. Ganaway Sr. and Catherine Hill Ganaway.
Chuck worked for Nationals Supermarket as a cashier and stocker for almost 5 years; he was a very hard worker and everyone at Nationals loved him. Chuck entered the United States Air Force right after turning 21, where he served as an electrician for the air- crafts from 1981-1985. Chuck had an infectious, beautiful smile that could light up a room; he could make anyone laugh with his blunt humor, and he will be missed tremendously by all who knew him.
He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his father, Charles E. Ganaway Sr. of Bayou L’Ourse; one brother, Louis F. Ganaway and wife Joan of Bayou Vista; two sisters, Ginger L. Bonin of Morgan City, Melissa D. Marcel and husband Corey of Bayou Vista; brother-in-law, Floyd Vining Jr. of Berwick; a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and cousins.
Chuck was preceded in death by his mother, Catherine Hill Ganaway; sister, Kim R. Vining; brother-in-law, Lockwood Bonin Jr.; nephew, Jonathan Ganaway; maternal and paternal grandparents.
