Charles Hughes

May 10, 1968 - April 07, 2021

Kimball graduated from Sullivan North Highschool and spent his whole life in Kingsport, Tennessee. Growing up, he loved to attend Way of Life Baptist Church and always thought of the Pastor and his family as his own. He loved his family and his grandchildren more than anything. He was a lover of the simpler things in life and spent many days outside fishing or teaching his grandchildren, nieces and nephews how to fish, swim, and drive cars. Kimball was very passionate about music and loved to sing along to any song you would play. One of the greatest days of his life was February 18th, 2021 when he received Christ as his Savior. Kimball loved the humanity of mankind and wanted to help the homeless people. He had a servants heart and his kindness will be missed most of all.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Minnie Calhoun of Kingsport, Tennessee; father, John Hughes of Shelby, North Carolina; brothers, Johnny, Joe, and Bobby Hughes.

Left to cherish his memory is his son, Richard Hughes of Kingsport, Tennessee; his daughters, Kelsie Schaffer of Gate City, Virginia, Shayla Castle of Duffield, Virginia, Madison Hughes of Kingsport, Tennessee; sisters, Tammie Reichert and husband William of Palm Coast, Florida, Penny Kitzmiller of Kingsport, Tennessee; as well as several grandchildren, nieces, and nephews; he was especially close to his nephew Jonathan Shepherd of Palm Coast, Florida, who he thought of as his brother; and the love of his life, Angela Westmoreland.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, April 14th, 2021 at 5:00 pm at Way of Life Baptist Church. The service will follow beginning at 6:00 pm with Pastor Johnny Gibson officiating.
