Obituary : Charles Youngs
Charles (Chuck) Youngs of Orlando, Florida, and Oak Bluffs died March 3, at his home in Orlando. He was 79 years old. He was born in Providence, R.I., the son of Charles and Ruth Youngs.
Chuck leaves behind the love of his life, Anne Sharon (Whitehead) Youngs, his wife of 43 years.

Chuck served in the United States Navy and was later employed by the New England Telephone Company for 35 years. He was a man of honor and great integrity. His kindness overflowed on all who were lucky enough to be called his friend. He was a culinary expert, and his famous dishes were enjoyed by his many friends in the Campground in Oak Bluffs and also in his Orlando home. His great sense of humor and wit kept everyone smiling and laughing when they were with him.
