Chuck worked for Kenworth in Kansas City, MO for 22 years and then for B.P.U. Quindaro Power Station until his retirement in 2008.

Chuck enjoyed many activities with his princess, Mary Maxine. He was always her biggest supporter in whatever she wanted to achieve. He coached her softball teams as she grew up. They also were involved in The Indian Princeses (Thunder Cloud and White Cloud); a YMCA program for fathers and daughters during grade school. Chuck loved classic street hot rods and motorcycles. He enjoyed taking motorcycle rides with his grandsons on bike trips to various locations. Chuck was an avid Kansas Jayhawk Basketball fan.

Chuck is preceded in death by his brother, Curtis “Curt” Deason; sister, Patricia Deason Croft; honorary grandson, Robert Zevenbergen; nephew, Michael Hoppis; and niece, Donna Deason.

Chuck is survived by his wife of 52 years, Ardith; daughter, Mary Maxine Pollock and husband Jim; two grandsons, Troy and Mitchell Pollock; sister, Shirley Deason Wallace; sister in-law, Carol Deason; loving nieces and nephews; and all of his great friends/buddies for all of their quality time spent together; whether good or bad. And last but not least, the canine prince of the household, Cooper.

The family would like to thank the Telemetry and ICU nurses and doctors, along with support staff at Overland Park Regional Medical Center, for the excellent care given to Chuck, and support and companionship to our family. A special thank you to his cardiologist, Dr. Kirit Masrani, for his medical care and compassion over the past 24 years and especially during the past couple of months.

Ardith, we all know these days will happen, but way too soon for Chuck. We feel such a terrible sadness, but will forever remember what great times we shared whether it be with our street rods, 2 cruises together, trips to Mississippi & Florida plus such fun times at the lake house laughing it up. Remember the \"$75 diamond ring\" gag?? We sit & think of so many, many perfect times together & even those Saturday nights with the 3 couples eating & playing Farkle!!! We'll never EVER forget our fun together & you & Chuck.
