Charles R. Davis passed away on December 5, 2011, in Bothell. Chuck was born on June 11, 1940, in San Diego, Calif. He had resided in Woodinville since 1970.
Chuck was preceded in death by his mother, Alice, and father, Charles, and by his daughter Barbara Trent, who passed away in 2001. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Nancy; his son, Paul; daughter in-law, Donna; grandchildren, Taylor and Alysha and his sister, Betty.
Chuck was an ordained Lutheran minister and spent his career as a pastoral counselor. He was passionately dedicated to his clients and colleagues. He spent a great deal of his time helping people work through their grieving processes.
In 2004-2005 Chuck learned that he had lost the use of his diaphragm and was put on full-time oxygen therapy. In 2006 he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Chuck never gave in to either medical issue and fought to his last breath.
He spent the last two months of his life at the Bothell Medical Center. He was such a fighter that he was determined to come home and return to work because he felt the need to be available to his clients.
In fact, the family was able to enjoy his company for Thanksgiving dinner at their home in Woodinville. His strength and determination continued to grow. Unfortunately, Chuck contracted a virus which his damaged immune system could not fight. His weakened condition forced his body to end the fight. Chuck is, and will always be, a loved man in his family, his community, his profession and his church. He was a man of God and a man of his family. One of Chuck’s greatest joys was attending Seattle Sounders matches with his son. Their father-son bond was as strong as one could be.
Chuck will be greatly missed by his family, his peers, his colleagues and the many people he served throughout his life.
