Charles J. "Chuck" Vennard, III, 18, died unexpectedly on Monday, October 4, 2021 at his home.
He was born on March 3, 2003, in New York, a son of Charles Vennard, II and Tonia Haun Lampe.
Despite growing up in foster care, Chuck always lit up the room and made everyone smile. He was a friend to all and would often pull over while driving or run out of a business to say hello to someone he knew and spend some time talking with them. He had a kind heart and will be remembered for his dedication to his football team and football family while in school. He often enjoyed watching the Steelers and pick-up football games with his friends. He enjoyed playing X-Box with his friends, and also was very patriotic, having great respect for all branches of the military. He was a dedicated member of the Civil Air Patrol, achieving the rank of Cadet Senior Master Sergeant. He was given the honor of Cadet of the Month for 2 months in a row prior to the Covid pandemic. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his girlfriend; Jenna Schatz of St. Marys, his best friend; Collin Hannah; two sisters; Patricia Haun and Elizabeth Vennard, and by a brother; Michael Haun-Patterson. He is also survived by his maternal grandmother, paternal grandparents, a host of good friends too numerous to mention, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
