Charles Vaughn Conway, “Choc,” was born March 4, 1940, at Strong City, Oklahoma. Choc was eighth in a family of 10 children — five boys and five girls.
He was preceded in death by his dad and mom; two brothers George Conway, Shirl Conway; sister, Delena Conway Cassidy; son-in-law, Kris McDougall and a grandson, Adam McDougall.
Choc is survived by his wife, Gail of the home; sons, Eric Conway and wife, Cheri, Mike Conway and wife, Teresa, both of Ardmore; daughter, Tracy Conway and husband, Will of Lone Grove; two stepdaughters, Katrina Dorroh and husband, Robert of Mooresville, NC, Sonya Hunter and husband, Robbin of Dickson, Okla.; four sisters, Martha Musgrove, Sharion Cooper, Mertie McKee, Peggy Luckett; and two brothers, Bill Conway and Jim Conway. In addition Choc is also survived by 11 grandchildren, Justin, Olivia, Tyler, Keeton and Reece Conway, Caleb, Kaitlyn Dorroh, Colton and Eli Hunter, Conner McDougall and Kristen Lockridge.
Choc loved to worship his Lord with his brothers and sisters in Christ at First Baptist Church in Ardmore where he taught Sunday School for a number of years. He always said he couldn’t sing a note, but he enjoyed it so much. He was a retired cattleman and enjoyed working outdoors. He loved coaching his kids in little league and his grandchildren in sporting events. He loved sports and played basketball at Dickson High School. Choc loved God, His Son, Jesus Christ, his church, family, friends, his country, history and Texas Ranger baseball and football.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Conner McDougall Medical Fund at Citizens Bank or to the First Baptist Church Mission Ministries.
Pallbearers will be Terry Brewer, Gene Willingham, Harold Caudle, Morris Nalls, Don Tidwell, David Stewart, Al Johnson and Caleb Tennison.
Our lives are forever changed here on Earth, but Heaven is sweeter and “we can only imagine”… The blessing comes in knowing that it is not “goodbye” but “I’ll see you later sweetheart, daddy, Pa and friend.”
