In memory of
Charles Chaffin, age 64, of Georgetown, Texas passed away on Thanksgiving Day, November 27, 2014, in Georgetown, Texas.
A time of visitation, with family and friends, will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 3, 2014 at Ramsey Funeral Home, Georgetown.
Charlie was born on March 12, 1950 to parents, Edwin Lee and Luella (Fulcher) Chaffin in Big Spring, Texas. When Charlie came to Georgetown, he was employed as a ranch foreman where he enjoyed raising cattle, goats and horses. He also had a state and federal brucellosis testing accreditation. He has worked at the Austin Avenue Animal Hospital with Dr. John Tarlton for the past 25 years helping with both large and small animals.
Charlie loved his frequently extensive travels to Mexico and Central America. He also especially had an interest in the Big Bend area of Texas and attended the international meeting between the parks of Big Bend and Mexico at Terlingua and the Rio Grande Village with Dr. Tarlton years back. The great outdoors was Charlie's love, as was his hunting for and collecting Native American artifacts.
World and Texas history were his passions. He enjoyed helping educate children about history. He taught children to ride horses, work with cattle and hunt. He liked competing in golf tournaments with his friends, and also in Texas Hold'em tournaments. He was an avid University of Texas Longhorn fan as well. He cleverly created useful pieces for his friends' as he would tinker with carpentry. Even though most knew him as a quiet sort of fellow, he could tell some great stories! He will greatly be missed.
Charlie was preceded in death by his parents, Edwin Lee Chaffin and Luella (Fulcher) Chaffin.
Charlie was a beloved brother to his sister, Carol Wright; sister, Debby Rowe; and brother, Steve Chaffin. Though not related, he was very special to the Tarlton family: Dr. John and Lana, Cole, Patrick, Renee, Tyler and Tucker who all considered Charlie a member of the family.
