Charles (Chuck) Hugh Wilson  April 16, 1942 - November 26, 2020  

Charles "Chuck" Hugh Wilson, 78, of Las Cruces, NM, passed away on November 26th, 2020 in Las Cruces, NM. Chuck went to the hospital for back pain that never improved - the fractures found in his bones are thought to have been caused by cancer. Chuck was born in Roswell, NM on April 16th, 1942 to Joseph Adolph and Grace Wilson. He went to Roswell High School and received his bachelor’s in business administration from New Mexico State University. Chuck was a simple man who enjoyed watching sports, especially the LPGA, Steelers, baseball, and NASCAR, driving his '89 5.0 mustang, country-dancing, and steadfast. You could count on Chuck smoking a cigarette and wearing a baseball hat, or a cowboy hat for special occasions and out dancing. His proudest moment was when both of his sons played together on their High School Golf Team as #1 and #5. He carried around the newspaper clippings for 35 years in his wallet! Chuck was the Accountant at Las Cruces Sun News, a bus driver, and most proudly, serving his country in the Army. Chuck was a great father, grandfather, and sweet friend who will not soon be forgotten. Chuck is survived by his sisters Sherry and Jan, half-sister Jean, son Craig, and grand-daughter Madolyn. Chuck is preceded in death by his parents Joseph and Grace, brothers Joe and Eugene "Kenny", and his son Keith. "It's time to say goodbye to yesterday. This is where the cowboy rides away" There will be no service or memorial due to COVID-19. Chuck's remains will stay in the family. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity of your choosing In Honor of Chuck. Arrangements by Getz Funeral Home, 1410 E. Bowman Ave. Las Cruces, NM 88001.
