    I just found out Charlie died last October, and wish I'd have made it back down to see him again. I last saw him when I visited in 2016, and we had a fun talk about all the hell we raised as kids, and the other Gean family members. He was a great and interesting cousin, who will be missed by everybody he ever knew.

  4. Brandon Gean, Trumann says

    Ok where do I start. Dad I’m going to miss everything that we did together or with our family. I will miss our phone calls and text messages of “what you doing?” And always a reply of “nothing what are you doing?” I will miss our Sunday Lunch every week where Angela would cook a great meal. I loved watching you enjoy that meal and spending time with Ashlyn. You were Ashlyn’s world and all of her friends loved you like you were their Pepaw too. I will miss all the talks we had about Arkansas sports and life in general. I kept your voice mails so I could hear your voice anytime. You were my hero and my rock and now your in Heaven with all of our loved ones who left us before. Dad you were my best friend and I’m going to be lost without you. When I go in your house I breakdown crying because I want to see you sitting on the couch saying “hey bubba”. I will miss you cheering Ashlyn on at her games and giving her great advice. I will miss seeing you love Nick and Meredith like your own blood. Dad I was there as you took your last breath and I pray I see you again after I take my last breath. Please watch over us and protect us. Angela is trying her best to comfort me but she is hurting too. She loved you more than life itself. I’ll see you again Daddy! I love you and will miss you for the rest of my life!

  9. Arnold Crow, Tyronza, Ar. says

    My good friend and neighbor for the past 40 years. He was a hard working simple man who loved his family, especially his son Brandon. He talked about playing baseball when younger. I assume he was better than an average player!!! He loved his CHEVY or GMC trucks. Went to bed with the chickens and up with the roosters. I'm gonna miss hollering, hey Chug-a-Lug, when I seen him outside. Rest In Peace my friend until we meet again.

  10. Glynnis Boyles, Bartlett, TN says

    May you rest in peace, Chuck. You were loved, and will be missed, by many. Prayers for your family.
