Chuck Kumalaa Obituary – Death: In Loving Memory of Charles Louis Kumalaa of Marion, Ohio: On February 6, 2023, Charles Louis Kumalaa, 60, of Marion, Ohio, passed away. Roberta Merkel and the late Louis Burch welcomed Charles into the world on January 9, 1963. Charles has lived all around the country.
They had a happy 25 years together before being reunited in heaven. He had met and married his late wife Jennifer Kumalaa while traveling and working as a truck driver.
William Kumalaa, Jessica Kumalaa, Savannah Maine, and Kylie (Cade) Wygal are his four children; also surviving are six grandchildren and his younger sisters.
He was a devoted, caring father who over the years drove a truck to support his family while making immeasurable sacrifices. He loved his granddaughters more than anything in this world and was a wonderful parent and grandfather to them.
Chuck enjoyed spending a lot of his free time near automobiles. Whether it was his Old Willys, his vintage Chevy, his brilliant orange Charger, or his stunning blue Challenger, he was known for driving exciting, showy vehicles. Everyone would always look at his autos when they passed. He would almost certainly be riding his motorcycle if you couldn’t find him at an AMMO event or a car show with his club, the Rod Knockers. He is frequently seen cruising with his friends or driving on exciting, difficult roads like the Tail of the Dragon.
Chuck was a major music aficionado as well. He enjoyed taking his children and Jennifer, his wife, to concerts. Driving a truck and traveling with Five Finger Death Punch as part of their tour was something he relished doing during his final summer on this planet.
He had an incredible presence in this world and it will never be the same without him. He will be terribly missed.
His family can be reached privately for more details on the memorial service that will be performed in his honor.
