Charles E. Shockney


Charles E. Shockney, of Vincentown, New Jersey, and formerly of Wabash, Indiana, passed away on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019, at the age of 74. Born in Elwood, Indiana, he was the son of the late John H. and Mary Shockney.
Chuck's life revolved around music and his family. From the youngest of children to the elderly, Chuck devoted his life to sharing his love of music with others, always proclaiming the Glory of God. He was a teacher and music director for many years at both Southwood High School in Indiana and Carmody Junior High in Colorado. He also had an opportunity to be the organist for the Colorado Rockies baseball team, as well as was a member of the Order of the Free Masons. Chuck proudly served and retired as choir director and organist at the Carmel United Methodist Church in Carmel, Indiana.
He was the beloved husband of Cheryl J. Shockney (nee Kizer), of Wabash, Indiana, and was the loving father of Elizabeth Reynolds (Floyd), Mary Ann Walton (Timothy), and the late Patrick Shockney. He was the loving grandfather of Ryann, Trevor, Shane and Blake. Chuck was the loving brother of Neal Shockney (Sue) and will be missed by many nieces and nephews.
Services and interment will be held at a later date in Wabash, Indiana.
