Obituary
Chuck Dralle went to his heavenly home on November 21, 2013 after a lengthy illness, one day before his 71st birthday. Charles Ray Dralle was born on November 22, 1942 to Arthur Martin and Pearl Francis Dralle in Jackson, Michigan. Growing up in a military family required him to call many places home, but he spent most of his teenage years in Anchorage, Alaska. He spent the last 28 years making his home in Southwest Missouri, spending his final days in Branson. Chuck enlisted into the Army directly out of high school and served several years doing his part in protecting this great country. Chuck thoroughly enjoyed his life. He loved the outdoors, and playing golf. He was a huge Chiefs fan and enjoyed watching and following his favorite sport, baseball. He often spoke of the time and countless hours he spent coaching a group of young ballplayers while stationed in Japan during his time served in the Army. He enjoyed his family and always appreciated the small things they did that showed him how much he was loved. Some of his favorite memories included traveling with his wife, Martha Kaye, whom he loved very much. He was a good Christian man who thought of others before he thought about himself. He was never one to brag or draw attention to the fine things that he did. There were countless good deeds performed with the intent of making the lives of others easier and better. After serving his time in the army, he spent many years working construction. Chuck was a very successful business man, spending nearly 40 years in the retail package business. He owned and operated S&B Liquors in El Dorado Springs. He did everything to the best of his abilities, never allowing greed or pride to get in the way of doing what was right. He was well respected by all those that knew him. Chuck is preceded in death by both of his parents, and his son in law Jeffrey Moos. He is survived by his soulmate and wife of 43 years, Martha Kaye. Every day revolved around his wife who he has shared many great times and experiences with. Chuck also leaves behind, one brother, Cameron Arthur Dralle of Kansas City Missouri. He shared his life with three daughters and one son: Anna Rae Moos of Tennessee, Laurie Kay Foster and her husband Don of California, Lisa Kay Dralle of Springfield Missouri and Christopher Martin Dralle and his wife Leslie of Springfield Missouri. He was extremely proud of his seven grandchildren: Rayanne Moos, Alexandra Moos, Stephen Foster, Jacob Dralle, Brady Leonard, Blake Dralle and Emma Dralle. He is also survived by his sister in law, Sandra Summers and her husband Bill and his brother in law CH Morrow all of North Carolina. He also leaves his memories with many nieces, nephews and friends.
