November 25, 1960 - August 1, 2021
Charles Joseph “Chuck” Mehler, age 60, passed away at his home on August 1, 2021. Chuck was born on November 25, 1960 in Ironwood, Michigan to Charles W. and Patricia A Mehler. After graduating from Luther L. Wright High School in 1978 Chuck made a living as a Carpenter working for a local contractor building modular homes. When homes sales in the area toppled, he took a position in the family’s business as a Glazier. In the early 1980’s Chuck struck out on his own and moved to Morgan City, Louisiana. He worked as an Engineer on numerous inland tugboats hauling equipment and chemicals up and down the Atchafalaya River. After most of the oil and gas exploration was curtailed in the Gulf of Mexico, Chuck moved to Jacksonville, Florida where he was employed by who would soon be his Stepfather and his son’s namesake Warren McClain as an automotive technician. With Chucks relentless drive, attention to detail and show up to work no matter what attitude he soon reached the level of Automotive Service Excellences “Master Technician”. A feat he was quite proud of. He worked for a few different local auto repair shops as well as a short time for himself. The majority of his professional career was spent at Westside automotive where he was employed at the time of his passing. Chuck is survived by his mother, Patricia A. McClain; brother Craig (Barbara) Mehler; aunt, Darlene Wong; as well as his most beloved son Nicholas Warren Mehler. Chuck was a beloved son, brother and most importantly a loving father to his son Nick. He will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved him. His quick wit, crazy sense of humor. and loyalty to family and friends are traits which will keep him in our hearts for the rest of time.
