Charles Lou “Chuck” Queen III, 50, of Chillicothe, passed at 9:35 a.m. Thursday, June 16, 2022 in the Adena Regional Medical Center following a courageous battle with Mesothelioma. 

He was born December 30, 1971, in Columbus, Ohio, to the late Charles Lou Queen II and Shirley Smyers.  On January 21, 2007, he married his soul mate and best friend, the former Audra Hiles who survives.

Chuck was a graduate of Paint Valley High School and had attended Ohio University Chillicothe.  He had worked at Wal-Mart Distribution in Washington Court House, CCI in Chillicothe and Keihin in Mt. Sterling.  Chuck was an avid hunter and fisherman and enjoyed being outdoors and spending time with his family.  He attended Faith Apostolic Tabernacle Church.

The family would like to extend a special “thank you” to the Adena Hospice Nurses for the loving care giving to Chuck and compassion shown to our family during this time.
