Charles Alvin Majors, known to many as “Chuck”, was born October 6th, 1949 in Satin, Texas. He was the 13th of 14 children born to the late Mr. L.C. Majors Sr. and Mrs. Alvie Majors. He gave his life to Christ at an early age and was baptized at Cedar Grove Baptist Church in Satin, Texas. Chuck attended Rockdamn Jr. High School in Satin, Texas from 1st to 10th grade. He then graduated in 1967 from George Washington Carver High School in Waco, Texas.
Chuck was quiet, helpful, smart, and a very good student. Growing up, he enjoyed playing baseball, learning to cook with his mother, and fishing.
He moved to Seattle in 1973 where he met his one true love, his wife, Gloria Joyce Davis in 1974. Chuck started his family with Gloria and step-son Marcus Davis, and they later welcomed their daughter Charlene “Keke” Keosha Majors in 1984.
Chuck completed a pipefitter apprenticeship and joined the United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipefitting Industry of the United States and Canada - Local 32, the largest plumbing and pipefitter union in North America. During this time, Chuck worked on Seattle landmarks such as the Edgewater Hotel, hospitals in the Seattle First Hill neighborhood, and was part of the construction of many iconic buildings in Downtown Seattle and the Greater Puget Sound area. He worked for 40+ years and remained a proud member of the Local 32 until his passing.
Chuck was the definition and example of what a good man is. A father to many, grandpa, uncle, cousin, and husband. He worked hard and always gave everything he had to his family. He was helpful, thoughtful and as kind as can be. Chuck had a quiet strength about him and though he was not a man of many words, he had a larger than life presence. He loved to laugh and make others laugh; his smile would not only light up his face but the entire room.
He worked hard and always gave everything he had to his family. He always opened his home to any family members that needed it. He loved to BBQ and was well known for his famous potato salad. He enjoyed car rides, listening to the blues, and road trips.
Charles was preceded in death by his parents Mr. L.C. Majors Sr. and Mrs. Alvie Majors; brothers Freddie Lee Majors, L.C. Majors Jr., Vernon Majors, Theodore Majors, Franklin Majors, and Marvin Majors; and sisters Alice Wilson and Ruby Jackson.
He leaves to cherish his memory Gloria Joyce Davis, their daughter Charlene Keosha Majors, step-son Marcus Davis; siblings Joel “Pete” Majors, Curtis “Butch” Majors Sr., Mary Lousie Brandon, Doristine Degrate, Gloria “Von” Majors; grandchildren Markuel Davis, Shawntehnea “Deja” Sherman, Marqui “Jay” Davis, Jadin Nguyen and one great grandson Champion Sherman, as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
