The unusual obituary of The Chuckster, a man who joyfully seized the day

I never met The Chuckster, but I wish I had. He died Nov. 6. 

I was reading the News-Leader Thursday when I just happened to spot an obituary on an inside page with the name: “Charles (the Chuckster) Edward McGinnis.”

The Chuckster? 

What manner of obituary was this?

Of course, I had to read it.

“He gave nearly everyone in his life a nickname. If you were lucky, you got two nicknames. And he didn’t just greet you with your nickname, he yelled it when you walked into the room.

“For some, he wrote a personalized song that he sang to you every time you walked in the door. He poked fun at everything in life noticing the little things that others often missed.”

His survivors were listed not by name, but by nickname.

This obituary was loving, quirky and bursting with life.

I wondered: Who wrote this final testament to The Chuckster?
