Charles "Chuck" Nason

April 15, 1950 — January 11, 2024

Lakeside - Marblehead

Charles “Chuck” Nason, 73, of Lakeside Marblehead, passed away January 11, 2024. He was born in Port Clinton, Ohio, on April 15, 1950, to Donald and Geraldine (Lucas) Nason. Chuck was a 1968 graduate of Lakeside High School. In April of 1969, he enlisted in the United States Army, and served in Germany during the Vietnam War. He was honorably discharged in July of 1971. Following his service in the military, Chuck earned an associate’s degree in accounting and graduated in 1980 from Terra State Community College. On April 4, 1986, he married Dorothea (Laubacher) Nason in Fremont, Ohio, and they enjoyed 36 years of marriage until her passing on March 5, 2022. Chuck was a truck driver for the Shelly Company for many years until finally retiring in September of 2019.

In his free time, Chuck loved being outdoors and tending to the flowers in the garden, fishing and traveling. He also attended The Chapel in Port Clinton. Chuck loved spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He is fondly remembered as being a jokester and had the most infectious laugh that never failed to get his family to laugh along with him.
