Obituary of Charles "Chuck" N. Rhoads

Charles “Chuck” N. Rhoads, 66, passed away on Sunday, May 12, 2019.


Born in Pottstown, PA, on October 19, 1952, Charles was the son of the late Nelson and Elizabeth (Becker) Rhoads.


Chuck was proud to serve in the United States Army and in the National Guard for forty years. After his time in the military, he worked as head custodian at Pottstown High School until he retired in 2018. When he was not working he spent his time outdoors camping, fishing, and hunting. He enjoyed watching sports, following politics, and trading stocks. He enjoyed his toys, trucks, tractors, classic cars, and rifles. Chuck loved life! He was always telling jokes, having fun, and making light of situations. He had dreams of bringing his family campground back to life for his children and grandchildren to enjoy. He will be greatly missed by all of his friends and family.


He is survived by his children, Chaundra Santangelo, Collegeville, PA; Kimberly Levering, wife of Cliff, Land O’ Lakes, FL, Elissa Rhoads, Tioga, PA; and Charles Rhoads, Jr., Kingsville, MD; one sister, Sylvia Yeager, Pottstown, PA; and five grandchildren, Hayden, Skyler, Avery, Zoey, and Zane.
