Charles William Morrow, age 52, of Acworth, GA, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, September 1, 2017. He was born on December 12, 1964 in Pittsburgh, PA.

Chuck Morrow was most prominently known as the founder, owner, and CEO of Ambush Board Co. and BuyWake.com. A pioneer in board sports retail, he developed Ambush into an internationally known global online retailer, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in June of this year. A larger than life personality, he thrived on change and challenging conventional wisdom. In addition to being an innovator and a disruptor, he was a scratch golfer, avid snowboarder, and accomplished poker player. Chuck was a loving son, husband, father, and grandfather, and great friend to many. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Chuck is survived by his wife of 22 years, Melinda; mother and stepfather Mickey and Jerry Files; three children, Kalyn Morrow of Kennesaw, Eric Elliott of Atlanta, and Lee Elliott and wife Leslie of Woodstock; two grandchildren, Jamie and Erin Elliott; mother-in-law Mary Graziano of Redondo Beach, CA; and step-sister Carey Files of Kennesaw. Many extended family members and friends also survive. Chuck was preceded in death by his father Charles William Morrow.
