Charles (Chuck) Peet, Jr., a loving son, father, grandfather, brother, nephew and friend passed away peacefully on February 5th after a brief but valiant battle with cancer. Chuck was born on January 26, 1966 in Orange, Texas to Charles (Bubba) and Linda Peet. Chuck graduated from LCM high school in 1984. Chuck was married to Misty Simon and had a son, Cullen Peet. Chuck had several occupations during his lifetime, but for the last 10 years he owned a pilot car business and loved travelling the country escorting oversized loads and making friends wherever he went. Chuck also loved to spend time with his family and friends out on the water, riding ATV’s, or just relaxing by a campfire.

Chuck is preceded in death by his father Charles (Bubba) Peet Sr. and his grandparents, Charles W. and Verde Peet and Albert and Miriam Wright. Chuck is survived by his son Cullen and his fiancé Cassi, his granddaughter Huntley, his mother Linda, his brother Drew and wife Kris, his nephew Tyler, his niece Jessica, his beloved aunt Karolyn Fruge, uncle and aunt Alvin and Shirley Wright, aunt Sylvia Smith , many cousins, and more wonderful and devoted friends than anyone could ask for.
To all that knew Chuck, he was the life of many a party and always willing to raise a glass with friends and family. He had a personality that was hard to miss and thankfully impossible to forget. Chuck was always ready to help out a friend, no matter if he had not seen you for 10 years or just the day before. He was blessed to have so many friends that were like family, who helped make his last days with us as joyful as possible. His joy for life will remain in all those who knew him as we celebrate life in his honor.
