Charles “Chuck” Greever, 64, of Searsport, and Shenandoah, Iowa, was dispatched to his final run Feb. 18, 2019, when he left Belfast and pulled through the gates of Heaven at 7:10 p.m., delivering the most precious cargo of his trucking career, his soul.

He was born Aug. 10, 1954, in Maryville, Mo., the son of Glen and Patty Jo (Asher) Greever.

Upon arrival, Jesus stamped his bill of lading and said, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord.”

Chuck grew up and lived most of his life in southwest Iowa, attending college in Tarkio, Mo., on a football scholarship. He played football, basketball, baseball and ran track in high school, and remained an avid sports fan forever. During his trucking career of more than 40 years, he met, fell in love with, and married another trucker and the love of his life, Sue Koch of Searsport. Chuck and Sue made their home in Shenandoah, Iowa, and continued trucking, logging nearly two million miles together, traveling border-to-border and ocean-to-ocean. Upon retiring, they wintered in Maine. Chuck was a very proud dad, who loved his sons dearly.

Those who met him as he pulled into his final rest stop include his parents, brother Steve, and father- and mother-in-law Bill and Ada Koch.

Those left with Chuck-sized holes in their hearts include his adored and loving wife; sons Kasey and wife Alexis, Jeremy and wife Lindsey, Andy and wife Liz, and David Greever; grandchildren Jeremiah, Isaiah and Charlotte Greever; brothers Mike and wife Sue, and Phillip and wife Barb; sister Sherry Powers and husband Larry; and sister-in-law Alice Greever, all of Iowa; brothers and sisters-in-law John Koch and wife Pam, Arthur Koch and wife Silvia, and Mary Ginn, all of Maine; many nieces and nephews, all of whom were special to “Uncle Chuck”; a huge brotherhood of supportive trucker buddies from coast-to-coast, and many treasured friends.

It was Chuck’s wish to be cremated with memorial services held at the Belfast Church of the Nazarene on Saturday, March 16, at 2 p.m., with a time of gathering from 1 to 2 p.m. There will be a service in Iowa announced at a later date. Arrangements are under the care of Riposta Funeral Home, Belfast. Memorial and condolences may be offered to the family at ripostafh.com.
