Charles Frederick Huncke, 71, passed away on October 18, 2018. Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, to Carl and Sally Huncke on June 3, 1947, he was preceded in death by his parents.
He is survived by the love of his life, Deeana Montgomery; sons Chris and Brian (Dina) Huncke of Indian Trail, North Carolina. Sister Ruthie (Alan) Holland of Little Rock and brother John (Kate) Huncke of Bronxville, New York. Amy (Walt) Terry and Amanda (Lynn) Tiner of Little Rock. Matt (Ali) Holland of Maineville, Ohio. Laura (Doug) Hoey of River Forest, Illinois. Grandchildren: Jake, Zach, Reed and Anna Claire Terry; Mary Montgomery, Trey and Janie Tiner. Nephews and nieces: Sara and Matt Huncke; Will, Molly and Gavin Hoey; Owen and Nate Holland.
He was dedicated to his work and, most importantly, to his family. He loved attending as many events as he could involving his grandchildren, particularly PA football games. He was a proud 1965 graduate of Catholic High School.
He was extremely proud to have served his country honorably in the United States Navy from June 1967 until November 1974. He spent most of his active duty on the USS Newport News including a Vietnam tour in 1969.
Charles worked tirelessly for John Chandler's companies for over the past 30 years. He loved the people he worked with there. We are convinced Charles has been assigned a new role as "Greeter" with St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, especially greeting young newcomers to heaven with his customary, very enthusiastic and vigorous handshaking accompanied by his saying "So very glad to meet you, so glad to meet you, it's great to meet you!" The perfect role for Tinker!
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you consider donations to the Catholic High School for Boys in Little Rock, the North Little Rock History Commission, the Arkansas State Police Foundation or a charity of your choice.
