Obituary for Charles E. "Chuck" Terrell, Jr.

Bartonville- Charles E. “Chuck” Terrell, Jr., age 82, passed away at his residence on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 in Bartonville, IL.

Chuck was born on February 10, 1936 in Lovilia, Iowa, a son of Charles E. and Mary A. (Heyland) Terrell, Sr. He was formerly married to Janice J. (Moody) Turley. They had three children; Theresa (Douglas) Peterson of Evans, GA, Denice (Stan) Kester of Bartonville, and Steven (Janine) Terrell of Peoria. He is also survived by 10 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and two brothers; John (Sherry) Terrell of Farmington, IL and Robert (Marlene) Terrell of West Peoria, IL.

Chuck graduated from Manual High School in 1953. He proudly served in the 182nd Illinois Air National Guard from 1953 retiring in 1991, after 38 years of service as rank Senior Master Sergeant. He co-owned and operated the Pilot Club Tavern in Bartonville, from the mid to late 70's. He was a member of the American Legion Post 979, Knights of Columbus - St. Jude 4333, 4th Degree, Hanna City Sportsman's Club, and South Park Bums, a group he and his Manual High School classmates founded.

Chuck was an avid St. Louis Cardinal's fan and never missed a post-game phone call with his son, Steve.  He was so proud of his family and never hesitated to brag about his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.  

He was a long time member of St. Ann's Catholic Church.  Chuck never missed a Sunday Mass or Holy Day and always arrived an hour early before Sunday Mass to help open the church with Sr. Judith Ann.  He has touched so many lives, made so many friends and will forever be missed.

A Funeral Mass will be at 10:30 AM on Monday, January 28, 2019 at St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Peoria. Fr. Donald Roszkowski will officiate.
