Charles Frederick Harless Jr Obituary

Dr. Charles F. Harless Jr., USAF Lt Col (Ret)

Dr. Charles Harless “Chas” passed away the morning of October 14th in the peace and comfort of his home while surrounded by family.

Charles was born on September 30, 1927 to Charles F. Harless Sr. and Mamie Harless in Durham, NC. His childhood was spent in Chapel Hill until age 10 when his family moved to Sanford, NC where his parents lived out their lives. At an early age Charles was recognized for having a beautiful singing voice and he won first place, receiving the highest marks possible, in the state competition for unchanged voices. He performed throughout his high school and college years then continued in church choirs as a soloist and graced many weddings including those of his children.

After graduating from high school Charles served a year in the Navy near the end of World War II. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and continued on to Dental School; graduating with UNC’s first Dental Class in 1954. Charles then joined the Air Force starting out in Colorado where he met his wife Paula. His family moved around the world being stationed in England, Texas, Florida, a tour in Viet Nam, Germany, and again in Florida before retiring in 1974 with 20 years of military service. Charles returned to Raleigh, and the state he always loved, to establish his private practice in Periodontal Medicine. He cared for his patients dearly and delighted in his daily interactions with them for another 28 years, finally retiring at age 75.

Chas was also an avid golfer becoming a member of North Ridge Country Club in 1980 which served as his second home when he retired. He kept a sharp mind working crossword puzzles, endlessly remembering and telling offbeat jokes, talking politics, and expressing opinions on any topic just for the fun of stirring things up.

Chas is survived by his wife of 58 years Paula, sons Jeffrey C. and Clay R. of Raleigh, Dr J. Matthew Harless of Roanoke, VA, stepsons Steven and Michael of Raleigh, a sister, Shirley Scott & husband of Boulder, Colorado, and 6 grandchildren. The progression of melanoma cancer shortened his time with us but we will continue to smile, laugh, show kindness, stay curious and always thoughtful as we remember him for the remainder of our days.

The family is inviting friends to share their memories of Chas with them at North Ridge Country Club, October 22nd, between 3:00 and 6:00 pm.

Internment will be at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date.
