Area Deaths - September 16, 2009

Charles “Charlie” D. Slick

Charles “Charlie” Donald Slick, 79, succumbed to complications from COPD Sunday, Sept. 6, 2009, at Mary Washington Hospital.
He was born Sept. 7, 1929, in Chester, Pa., but primarily resided in the Fredericksburg area and Baltimore, Md.
In 1946, he received an honorable discharge from the United States Coast Guard, and for 50 years continued to serve in the American Merchant Marine. Donald was one of the many veterans who served and died while still waiting for Congress to approve benefits granted to other World War II veterans but thus far denied to merchant mariners. He was a member of the Spotsylvania Baptist Church.
Donald was preceded in death by his parents, Fred and Estelle Slick, and his dearest friend, Marjorie Massey. He is survived by his daughter, Dawn Yvette Cropper, her husband, John, and their son, Justin, all of Dover, Pa.; grandson Brandon Myers and his wife, Madelyn, of Redline, Pa.;  his sister, Jane C. Pomeroy and her husband, Art; brother Ted W. Slick; nephew Thomas F. Coghill and his wife, Teresa Nagy; niece Daurne Coghill; nephew Troy Coghill and Kristin Pacello; niece Tish Coon, and her husband, Tom; nephew Eric Pomeroy and Wanda Sanders; nephew Justin Pomeroy; nephew Wade Puckett; nephew Stacy Payne; cousin and dear friend Ollie K. Stephens, and his cousin Dorothy Stephens; and devoted friends Cindy Lynard, Jennifer Massey and Jeremy Farmer, and Dick and Linda Westerburg. Also surviving is his cat, Sissy.
Mr. Slick donated his remains to the State Anatomical Program in Richmond; there will be no formal funeral service. However, those wishing to make a memorial contribution, we encourage to do so to the organization of one’s choice. Plans for a memorial service are not yet determined, but will be communicated when the details are confirmed.
Donald was an adventurous man with a wide range of talents, including flying small aircraft, bricklaying, television repair, collecting Indian artifacts and playing guitar.
He spent his life at sea but would come ashore occasionally to touch our lives and make indelible impressions on us all. His stories of strange lands and escapades were endless and seldom in need of embellishment to entertain.
He was a larger-than-life character with a constant Cheshire grin, a quick wit, a gorilla heart, and an undeniable charm--he was hard to resist. Donald was a man of great humor and vitality--he will be deeply missed by those touched by his spirit.
