“There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. Yet that will be the beginning. “-Louis L’Amour
Chuck has always been Consistent, Steadfast, Principled, and Fair. Chuck was born May 17, 1949, to Charles D. and Birdie F. Ott, who have preceded him in death. He was a son, brother, husband, soldier, welder, father, uncle, and grandfather. He enjoyed the outdoors, tending animals to include raising, showing, and judging Louisiana Catahoula dogs. Chuck was a member of Northside Baptist Church since 1975 where he served as an active Deacon. He retired from Exxon Chemical plant after 35 years. He served and ministered in numerous Christian organizations during his life, to include ELBA and The Gideons International. Chuck had a servant-leader heart and this was displayed in his belief that the people are the church and we should be committed in service and love.
Chuck is survived by his wife of 51 years, June Strickland Ott; sister Jean Roberts and husband Phillip, brother Daniel W. Ott, sons Charles D. and wife Angela, Chad W. and wife Megan, daughter Kristy Gremillion and husband Damon, grandchildren Mallory and Brooklyn Ott, Ian and Jaclyn Jones.
5 For I may be absent in body, but I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see how well ordered you are and the strength of your faith in Christ. 6 So then, just as you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to walk in him 7 being rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and overflowing with gratitude. Colossians 2:5-7
