Charles Lawrence (Chuck) Schorr passed away at home, April 25, 2017, and has gone on to join the Angels singing in the Heavenly Choir. His beautiful voice will be greatly missed. Although Chuck's true talent was in singing and playing guitar, he also mastered woodworking and design making many beautiful pieces of Mission Style furniture which will always be cherished by family and friends.

Chuck had a unique sense of humor, was passionate about those he loved and was a devoted family man. Many held dear his friendship and love which he openly shared. He was a loyal member of Carraway United Methodist Church, choir member and instigated numerous interesting discussions in Sunday School. He returned to Carraway, his boy hood church, after attending Lee's Chapel United Methodist Church for a number of years where he remained friends with many. He retired from Konica Mfg. U.S.A. and recently re-connected with many former co-workers and would join them for lunch to reminisce old times. He was determined to live life as fully as possible until one week before he was called home. He had two active and happy years after his diagnosis for which we are extremely thankful.

Chuck is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 47 years, Sherre Cunningham; only son, Jonathan Paul and wife, Christy Ball and beloved granddaughter, McKenzie Leigh, who was the light of his life and will greatly miss her Opa; brother, Stephen Paul and wife, Katherine P.; nephew, Matthew; niece and goddaughter, Taylor, who lovingly cared for Chuck during his last few days; mother-in-law, Maxine Thomas; stepmother, Patsy Schorr; stepsister, Kelly Knight; godson and namesake, Chuck Clayton.

Preceded in death are his father, Thomas Paul and mother, Ruth Shelton.

There will be a celebration of Chuck's life at Carraway United Methodist Church, 1301 16th St. 27405 on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 5:00pm with an informal opportunity to greet family immediately following.

Our sincere appreciation goes to Kimberlee Shaw, MD and Hospice nurse Sheri Jones for their care and kindness shown to Chuck and family during his battle with cancer. He will be dearly missed by his singing partners, Gayle Owens and Marsha Cole whose trio sang beautifully together for over 40 years. A part will always be missing.

Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Greensboro, 2500 Summit Ave., Greensboro, NC 27405, an animal rescue of your choice or Carraway United Methodist Church.
