Comer, Charles "Chuck" 1/3/1937 - 12/13/2016 Kalamazoo, Michigan Charles Douglas Comer, affectionately known as "Chuck" to his family and friends, departed this life peacefully to his heavenly home on December 13, 2016. Chuck was born on January 3, 1937 in Bluefield West Virginia to the parents of James Douglas Comer and Ruby Thompson Comer. Both parents preceded him in death. Chuck was a graduate of Columbus East High School, Bowling Green University and received his Masters at Western Michigan University, where he taught physical education and was a football coach for many years until his retirement. Chuck became a prolific Sports Photographer who was known throughout the world of sports for his "keen eye" in taking a precise shot at just the right moment! He was known and very well thought of by a host of professional athletics whom he photographed. He leaves precious memories behind to his friends and family which include Daughters, Cris and Cheri Comer, Sisters Barbara Clarke and Beverly Hargrow, Aunt Virginia Mathias and a host of cousins.
