Obituary for Charles Alfred Havlick

God called Retired CW3 Charles A. Havlick (Chief) home to be with the Lord on November 25, 2018 in Charlotte, NC at the age of 80 due to complications from pneumonia. He was surrounded by his family in his home under the loving care of Hospice.
Chuck is survived by his three children and spouses, Vincent F. Havlick and Lisa Moore of Fredericksburg, VA; Joan and Geoff Roberts of Charlotte, NC; and Joyce and Paul Schumann of Waxhaw, NC.
Chuck is survived by his eleven grandchildren: Krista Lawton, Preston Schumann, Phylicia VanVorce, Tiffany Lackey, Stephanie Richardson, Samantha Roberts, Ashley Lawson, Brittany Havlick, Zachary Roberts, Justin Estep, and Sarah Havlick.
Chuck is also survived by his nine great grandchildren: Ayden Havlick, Aubree Havlick, Bayne Vanvorce, Ivy VanVorce, Florence Lackey, AJ Lawson, Landon Lawson, Chase May, and Magnolia May.
Chuck (aka “Chicky” to all of his friends and family in New Jersey) is preceded in death by his wife, Patsy Elaine Havlick (Fleming); parents Frank Havlick and Stella Havlick (Christopher) of Atlantic City, New Jersey and by his brothers Vincent Frank Havlick, Frank Vincent Havlick, Brazier “Duke” Yorke all of Pleasantville, New Jersey and sister, Jane Haines (Yourn).
Chuck was born on October 15th in Atlantic City, New Jersey to Frank and Stella Havlick. He got his diploma from the State of New Jersey in February, 1960. He joined the United States Armed Forces (Army) in October of 1961. He married Patsy Elaine Havlick (Fleming) on October 5, 1964. Legend has it that Patsy pointed Chuck out at a dance and said, “I am going to marry that little devil.”
Chuck loved his wife, Patsy. They were married for 53 years, before her passing on December 18, 2017. They had 3 beautiful children: Vincent, Joan and Joyce. Chuck was always up for an adventure, so they spent time fishing, water skiing, and camping. Chuck always had a great sense of humor and over the years, developed his own book of “Chuck-ism’s” such as: “We call all sing together, but we can’t all talk together.”; “Pick me a winner.”; “My mother’s name was Stella and Stella didn’t raise no fool.”; “Listen, pay attention and do what you are told.”; “Don’t start no sh*t and there won’t be none.” Chuck always joked that everyone who entered his home had the “two count movement”: they would open the front door (count 1), then open the refrigerator door (count 2). He was always asking someone, especially his grandkids, to “pull my finger.”
Chuck, aka “Chief” was a leader in the United States Army as evident by his many awards. He was awarded the Bronze Star on the 15th day of January, 1993. He was awarded the Army Commendation Medal (4th Award); Master Parachute Badge; Meritorious Service Medal; Joint Service Commendation Medal; Army Achievement Medal; Army Good Conduct Medal; Army Occupation Medal; National Defense Service Medal; Humanitarian Service Medal; Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal.
In his 30 year military career the “Chief” participated in the Vietnam Era riots of Detroit/DC (1967); 2 tours in South Korea; the snow clean up Rhode Island (1978); the nuclear clean-up of the Enewetak Attol in the Marshall Islands (1977-1980); the invasion of Grenada (1983); Desert Storm/Desert Shield (1990-1991). He and his family had the opportunity to travel around the world, specifically travelling to Germany, Georgia, Hawaii and North Carolina.
Chuck was a loving husband, a devoted father and grandfather, a beloved uncle and brother-in-law, a Military mentor in the Airborne Community, and a friend to us all. This old soldier will never be forgotten!
