They were married August 1, 1969. Additional surviving members include two daughters; Heidi Tinsman and husband “Spook” of Mattoon, IL , Heather Prahl and husband Matt of Mattoon, IL; one brother, Sam and wife Joan of Mattoon, IL; two sisters, Carol Bishop and husband Jack of Trowbridge, IL, Brenda Hutton and husband Paul of Mattoon, IL; one sister-in-law, Fredda Sanders of Ramsey, IL; five grandchildren, Heath Tinsman and wife Kasey, Hailey Tinsman, Hayden Tinsman, Mason Prahl and Morgan Prahl, all of Mattoon, IL; two great-grandchildren, Kamden and Kynnady Tinsman of Mattoon, IL; many special nieces and nephews; and his dog and buddy Scout. He was preceded in death by his parents. Chuck was employed by R.R. Donnelly for over forty years, as an Auxiliary Equipment Maintenance Technician (AEMT). He was a man of faith and devout member of the First United Methodist Church. Chuck was known for his enjoyment in life and “taking it slow”; he could often be found piddling in his garage, running errands for his family, fishing, walking, and mushroom hunting. However, Chuck’s family and grandchildren were his pride and joy. He loved vacationing with his family and attending all of the grandchildren’s events. The legacy of Chuck’s kindness, selflessness, and pride will live through them. He will always be remembered for being “The Greatest Dad and Grandpa in the World.” Memorials in his honor can be made to the American Cancer Society and First United Methodist Church.
