Charles Wayne “Chuck” Coursey passed away on Monday, Aug. 8, 2016 in Golden Valley. He was 50 years old.

Charles, also known as Chuck, was born on April 21, 1966, in Kingman. It was early in his life that he discovered his love of baseball. One of his dreams was to play for the L.A. Dodgers. As he grew older, his desire to be a professional baseball player changed. Although he was always a fan, his plans for success changed frequently due to traveling and exploring different trades. Throughout the years, Chuck worked at many jobs in California and Arizona. He was a movie theater manager and had a pool service and delivery company. He recently relocated to Henderson, Nev. working as an Uber driver.

Not only did Chuck love baseball, but he also enjoyed music, playing a guitar, and spending time with friends and his cat, Beastie.

He is survived by his mother, Coreen (Dollarhide) Coursey of California; four siblings Ty Coursey, Lori Coursey, Darlene (Coursey) Denning, all of California and Georganna Coursey of Kansas. He has many family members that reside in Kingman, as well as nieces and nephews in California and Kansas.

Chuck was preceded in death by his father, Roland “Jug” Coursey, Jr. and his grandparents, O.D. and Georgia Dollarhide and Roland and Mayme Coursey, Sr.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, Aug. 19, 2016 at 10 a.m. at Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home.

Arrangements were placed under the care of Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home and Crematory.
