Arnold, Charles L. "Chuck"  
Charles L. 'Chuck' Arnold of River Ridge, LA passed away on January 14, 2017 at the age of 74 at Canon Hospice after a lengthy illness. Chuck was born to Dudley and Lucille Arnold in Albany, GA on September 11, 1942, but the family transitioned to New Orleans during his early years. Chuck attended Thibodaux College for high school, and he graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, LA. He then began teaching and coaching in the Jefferson Parish Public School System. However, as his young family grew, he quickly transitioned to a more secure position building push-boats with his father. As the business flourished, Chuck took on his father's work ethic, attention to detail, and skill as a negotiator. Eventually, Chuck began his marine business with the business they built together. Chuck always cherished the time he spent working alongside his father during this portion of his life. Chuck was also greatly influenced by his mother, taking on her immense love of cooking. He deeply enjoyed sharing the food he prepared with others and frequently hosted fish fries, wild game dinners, and holiday parties for large groups of his friends and family. Chuck also took pleasure in competitive cooking, and he made a name for himself participating in a host of events, including the HGA Gumbo Festival. He treasured the friendships he made in these settings, and during the late 1970s, Chuck's reputation as a cook led him to develop lasting friendships with several members of the New Orleans Saints organization. He was known within the organization for his gregarious and generous nature, and he was honored to cook for members of the team and staff on many occasions over the years, including NFL Drafts and Rookie Days. Chuck became a member of the Krewe of Okeanos during the 1990s, and he enjoyed the years he spent with the krewe. Chuck served as their King of Carnival in 2009, and to this day, the back of the seat on the King's float bears the name "Gloria" as the result of a prank he and a friend played during that carnival. Chuck also loved to fish, spend time at his vacation home in Grand Isle, and travel in his motor home. After quickly becoming restless in retirement, Chuck's interest in motor homes led him to open Stepper RV Services in 2008 as a "hobby." This lasted for several years, and he continued to enjoy the RV community as he and his wife Beverly traveled. Chuck is survived by his loving wife Beverly Oxford of River Ridge; daughters Alexandra Arnold of New York, NY and Arielle Arnold of Savannah, GA; stepchildren Capt. Sean M. Stuntz USAF, his wife Corie, and their daughter Riley of Dayton, OH and Shannon Stuntz Nichols and her husband Derek of Tupelo, MS; Step-mother Verdie Arnold of New Orleans; grandchildren Sarah and Michael Degeyter; cousin Katherine Simms; sister Elouise Chiasson; and many nieces and nephews. Chuck was predeceased by his parents, Dudley Arnold and Lucille Arnold. His greatest heartbreaks in life occurred with the passing of daughters Kerry Arnold Degeyter (2011) and Jennifer "G.G." Arnold (2007), both cherished by all. The family would like to thank the employees of Canon Hospice, Excel Home Health Care (especially the physical therapists Lauren and Jennifer), his personal physician Dr. Patricia Estrada, and extraordinary caregivers Ardean Mack and Tasha Mack. In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital or the charity of your choice. Friends, former employees of Stepper Towing Incorporated and Stepper RV Services, employees of John W. Stone Oil Distributors, employees of Dekle Drugs, and employees of Ragusa's Supermarket are invited to join the family at Garden of Memories Funeral Home, 4900 Airline Drive in Metairie, LA on Wednesday, January 18, 2017.

Obituaries from the Past Three Days

Atteberry, Doris R.  
Her sons, Philip and Richard, at her side, Doris passed away at home on Sunday morning January 8th 2017. Her 17 year journey as an Alzheimer's patient over, she was ready to rejoin her "sweetheart" husband, Jim, in heaven's splendor. Doris' life began March 1, 1927 in the seaside town of Leigh-on-Sea, 40 miles SE of London, England. In 1951, looking for an opportunity to help her family in the struggling post-war economy, Doris, skilled at shorthand, made the difficult decision to set sail for the foreign land of Venezuela to work for Shell Oil Company. As fate would have it, Jim Atteberry, a country boy from Louisiana had the same idea. They met in a little cantina, fell in love, married in England, and came to Baton Rouge to begin their long and happy life together. Doris was a loving wife and mother. She found a lifelong church home for her young family at the Broadmoor Presbyterian Church, serving as a secretary for several years and kindling many dear friendships. As a young newlywed , far from the shores of her homeland, she was thrilled to find the British Club in Baton Rouge. The many wonderful friends she made there brought a wee bit of England to BR and made her feel at home here. Doris loved playing tennis, bike-riding, and continued her daily walks throughout most of her Alzheimer's years. In retirement, she and Jim traveled the country, Europe, and jolly ol' England seeing friends, family, and the sights. After the first few years of Alzheimer's, Doris' "boys" moved back home to help Jim provide care for her and manage the daily chores. Jim was always proud of how his loving wife kept her cheery disposition and strength despite the disease. In her final years, Jim's "little angels" of The Hospice of Baton Rouge provided daily tender loving care for Doris. Our family is extremely thankful and grateful for the services of these Ladies and the whole organization. They were dearly loved and became part of our family. We will all miss Doris greatly, she never met a stranger and was a friend to all. A lovely lady, inside and out. Doris was preceded in death by her husband, James. G. Atteberry. Father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. John Raynham, sister, Betty Donolon, brother Cecil Raynham of Essex, England. And survived by her sons, Philip and Richard Atteberry, and brother of Essex, England, Dennis Raynham. A memorial service for Doris will be conducted by. Rev. Steve Wallace on Saturday, January 14th at the Broadmoor Presbyterian Church at 11:00 am with visitation from 9:00 to 11:00 am. Lunch and fellowship will be provided at the church following the service. Donations may be made to the Broadmoor Presbyterian Church.
