YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – On Friday, August 2, 2019, Charles “Chuck” J. Dravich, age 75, passed away at Select Specialty Hospital Youngstown.
He was born in Rochester, Pennsylvania on January 17, 1944 to Ralph and Rose (Trupkorvich) Dravich.
Charles is survived by his wife of 25 years, Shirley Ann (Fahrny) Dravich; daughters, Chrissy Kelley of Grove City, Pennsylvania and Heather (Jon) Headley of New Wilmington, Pennsylvania; daughter-in-law, Teresa Kelley of Pensacola, Florida; grandchildren, Andrew Carey of Crestview, Florida, Brandon (Michelle) Cummins of Union Township, Pennsylvania, Trevor Sturgeon of New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, Mariam Kelley of Grove City, Pennsylvania and Jaycie Headley of New Wilmington, Pennsylvania; brother, Robert (Donna) Dravich of Rochester, Pennsylvania and nephews, Matthew and Mark Dravich, both of Rochester, Pennsylvania.
Besides his parents, Chuck was also preceded in death by his son, Bryan Kelley and infant sister, Nancy.
Chuck loved hunting and fishing even though his health prevented him from those activities over the last few years. He found profound joy in watching, “shoot’em-ups,” (cowboy movies) with his granddaughter, Mariam, on TBS, when she would say, YES, she’d watch with him.
He did not attend church but was devoted to Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who Chuck called, “The Boss” and he would have been very proud to have passed into the Kingdom of God with over 30 years of sobriety.
Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at New Life Baptist Church, 3414 PA Rt 208, New Wilmington, PA 16142 with Pastor Steven Mikulshi officiating. A light lunch is to immediately follow.
