Charles (Chuck) R. Belcher, Sr., passed away Friday, January 5, 2018 at age 81.

Born in Grundy, Virginia, and predeceased by his parents, Willie Green and Virginia Grace Belcher and brothers, Clinton and Robert (Bob). Chuck graduated high school in 1954 and joined the U.S. Navy. After discharge from the Navy in 1958, he moved to Norfolk, Virginia and started his career in airline reservations, where he met his wife, Janet Rae Brewer of Bluefield, West Virginia. Chuck continued to serve our military in the airline reservation industry by working and managing the SATO travel offices at Fort Monroe, Langley, Ft. Eustis and Norfolk Naval Base, and other off-site duty stations around the world.

Survivors include his sons and their spouses, Charles (Rusty) and Suzanne of Hampton, Virginia; Patrick (Jessica) of Winter Garden, Florida, and Timothy (Catherine) of Fairfax, Virginia. Dad enjoyed spending time with his family and he loved having his 6 grandsons (Nathan, Justin, Tristan, Cartney, Dylan and Raeden) around him. He was thrilled to know he would be a great grandpa in March 2018. Several nieces and nephews are extended family.

Above all, his faith in Christ and leading others to the Lord through discipleship was important to him. For over 40 years, he taught young through senior adults in Sunday School. He was a member of Buckroe Baptist Church where he served as Sunday School teacher and Deacon. He had also been a member of East Hampton Baptist Church and Hall Road Baptist Church. He was also a member of the Gideon's International and loved sharing stories of how others were led to Christ through the message of the New Testament.

In their retirement years, Dad enjoyed cruising with Mom and their friends all over the Caribbean.

Services will be held at 11:00 am Thursday, January 11, 2018 at Buckroe Baptist Church, with interment at Parklawn Memorial Park.
