Later, he and his family were transferred to Georgia, Arkansas, and El Paso, where he eventually began his own wholesale food distribution company. Later he moved to Dothan and lived there for nine years before returning to El Paso, where he and son Todd were in business together.
Chuck was a loving father of two children and adoring grandfather of three. He was proud of his extended family, keeping current with all their activities and accomplishments. He was an avid golfer, long time fan of Alabama football and basketball, and UTEP basketball. He enjoyed "singing along" to music of the 60s and 70s. He had a passion for the study and discussion of politics and history. Chuck was a great listener and was genuinely interested in others. He was comfortable with people from all walks of life and adept at engaging them in conversations about themselves. He gave jobs to UTEP students and supported the Home for Battered Women, in El Paso. Chuck's all-time favorite gift was Jimmy Flower's boiled peanuts, from Opp.
Chuck had great respect for, and interest in the people, history, and culture of El Paso. This includes the beautiful desert mountains, wide-open spaces, no grass to cut, no flies or mosquitoes, and the fact you could play golf or exercise in excessive temperature and not perspire. He was a humorous, witty, and caring man. Every day of Chuck's life was spent trying to better the lives of all those he cared for and loved. He will be tremendously missed by all who knew him.
Chuck was predeceased by his parents, Frank and Lillian McGill, of Opp. He is survived by his son, Todd McGill; daughter Christy; three adoring grandchildren, Blake, Jordan, and Amya; the mother of his children and devoted friend, Martha McGill; one very special brother, Bart (Judith) McGill; niece, Eloisa; nephews, Bartley and Josh, all of El Paso.
