Chelsea - Charlie "Chuck" Means III, age 63, passed into his eternal life in Christ and glorious new body on March 25, 2021.\r\n\r\nChuck was born in Waterville, Maine on August 16, 1957 to Charlie A. Means Jr. and Dorothy (Rawley) Means. He grew up in Winslow and graduated from Winslow High School in 1976. He graduated from Casco Bay College in 1980 with a degree in Computer Science, and started working for the State of Maine as a computer operator. Chuck retired as a Senior Systems Analyst after 22 years of service.\r\n\r\nDespite a debilitating medical condition, Chuck lived life to the fullest over the years, doing the things that he enjoyed - playing guitar, riding motorcycles, bulldozing with his John Deere tractor, camping, and going boating and fishing. He particularly enjoyed boat trips down the Kennebec river and riding the waves on the ocean and riding his jet ski on Damariscotta Lake where he and his family were later able to own a camp. He was always upbeat and joking, and had the gift of cheering up others. Chuck took great pride in his work and learned to do mechanical, electrical, and plumbing jobs, house renovating and woodworking.\r\n\r\nMore than anything, Chuck was a devoted husband and father. Though he couldn't get to church in later years, his life philosophy was "God first, family second and work third". He was married to his wife Tina for 33 years, and they were thrilled when their daughter, CariAnn, came into their lives. Even when CariAnn became an adult, Chuck continued to call her his "Llittle Princess." He loved his dogs and they always vied for his attention, so much that we nicknamed him the "Dogfather."\r\n\r\nChuck was predeceased by his mother and several very special aunts and uncles. He is survived by his wife and his daughter of Chelsea, his father Charlie Means Jr. of Waterville, his sister Cheryl McInnis and her husband Dana of Winslow, nephews Craig McInnis and his wife Jennifer and children of Waterville and Christopher McInnis and his wife Rachel and children of Winslow, his uncle Richard Rawley of Windsor, his uncle David Rawley and his wife Marie of Waldoboro, and several cousins.\r\n\r\nA Celebration of Life will be held at 1 PM on Thursday, April 1 at Lighthouse Baptist Church, 108 Maple Street, Farmingdale, Maine. Due to COVID-19 services will be limited to family only. Arrangements are under the direction and care of Gallant Funeral Home, 10 Elm Street, Waterville, Maine. An online guestbook may be signed, condolences and memories shared at www.gallantfh.com.\r\n\r\nIn lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to the Bread of Life Ministries, 159 Water Street, Augusta, Maine 04330 or any humane society.
