Charles Joseph Slade of Creve Coeur, Missouri passed away Saturday, June 2, 2018, at the age of 76. Cherished husband of Jean Slade, beloved son of the late Charles and Dortha Slade, honored father of Heather and father-in law of Cyrus McCall, devoted grandfather of Slade and Lance McCall, treasured brother-in-law of Joan and the late Bob Bogan, dear uncle of the late Chris Bogan and only brother of the late Frank Slade.
Charles received his Bachelor of Science degree from Washington University and a Masters of Business from Maryville University. Charles worked for The Boeing Company and McDonnell Douglas for a combined total of 50 years. He was an invaluable Project Manager and mentor to his fellow colleagues. He enjoyed being a member of the Clayton Elks Lodge #9 for 40 years and a past Exulted Ruler. On the weekends, golfing and working on home projects were his hobbies. He was always a bright smile at the 19th hole and the dinner table.
Charles was loyal and generous, and family was his main priority. He spent his last week celebrating both grandsons’ birthdays in Maine. Jean and Heather were able to be by his side until the end. He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all that knew him.
