WILMINGTON — Chuck Caldwell, died the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016.

He leaves behind his mother, Eleanor Caldwell; and sisters, Nollie Morris and family, Emily Powell and family, Mary Caldwell and son, and Janice Carnes and her two daughters. He also leaves behind his brothers, Trey Caldwell and family, John Caldwell and Stephen Caldwell with family.

He would also like us to remember his Wilmington family: Andrea Harkin, her daughter, Sunshine, Andrea’s mother, Sandra, and B.J. Cooper, who he regarded as a brother. Chuck was also blessed with a large extended family who will miss him dearly.

His unique wit and sense of humor won him many friends, and his loyalty made those friendships steadfast. Children naturally gravitated to him. His nieces and nephews called him “Uncle Chuckles” for a reason. He was generous to a fault, often over gifting and making grandiose gestures. He loved to help someone in need and had a real way with animals. He will be greatly missed by many people and pets.

As owner of Quantum Acrylics he built many museum display cases and aquariums that can be found prominently in area landmarks including New Hanover Regional Medical Hospital, USS North Carolina Battleship Memorial and Cape Fear Museum for millions of visitors to enjoy every year.

His family would like to express their gratitude to all the friends who have sent prayers, good wishes and happy stories since we learned of his passing.

As Chuck would say to us all…“Miss you already.”
