Charles W. Correll Jr., 79, of Stallings, NC, passed away on August 8, 2021. Chuck was born on March 21, 1942 in Hamburg, PA, to the late Charles and Dorothy Degler Correll.
Chuck was a graduate of Marist College, where he earned his Bachelor’s degree. He also served honorably for 4 years in the US Army. He was a company clerk stationed in Hanau Germany. Chuck worked for IBM as a Project Manager; and was self-employed as a Quality Consultant.
Chuck played minor league baseball; and loved playing golf, tennis, softball and volleyball. Although he loved his sports, his number one pastime was his family. He was a great communicator.
