Charle (Chuck) Kurtz, 80, passed away Monday, September 5, 2022, at North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo. He was born December 5, 1941 to the late William Adrian Kurtz and the late Letha Milner Kurtz. He was a member of Community of Christ. Chuck was a proud Navy Veteran serving aboard the USS Intrepid. He was an avid fisherman and would not disclose his favorite fishing holes to anyone, except his brother and fishing buddy Dean. His favorite coffee shop was at Dean’s kitchen and patio most mornings to have his coffee and honey bun. He loved spending time with his family and reminiscing about the “old days”, playing games with family, and telling jokes. He played golf with his brothers Dean and Jim and sister Judy for several years, when weather permitted, after his brothers and sister retired to this area. Chuck was a great supporter of Tombigbee Jamboree and loved to dance. His favorite sayings were “You know what I mean” and “It’ll be alright.”
