Charles William Cargill JR.

April 21, 1938 –
 January 16, 2023


Charles (Chuck) William Cargill, JR. passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of January 16, 2023. He is survived by his wife Judy, his children Bill Cargill (wife Jody) of Dallas, Texas, Jim Cargill of Dallas, Texas and Anne Lehew (husband Scott) of Highland Village, Texas. He is also survived by his three grandchildren, Lauren Cargill, Madison and Molly Lehew.

Chuck was born on April 21, 1938 in Kansas City, Missouri to Charles W. and Story (Wood) Cargill. After high school he attended The University of Missouri and graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration.  While there, was a member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity and served in ROTC, leaving school as a commissioned officer. He served in the United States Army stationed at Fort Lee, Virginia and in the Army Reserves before receiving an Honorable Discharge in 1966.

On November 26, 1960, he married the love of his life Judy Williams at Bruton Parish Church in Williamsburg Virginia and they began their marriage during his Army service. Their first son Bill was born there in 1962. From there he joined his father-in-law William R. Williams in the insurance business in Altus, Oklahoma. His second son Jim was born there in 1964. After that he went back to school and graduated with a Masters in Business Administration from Oklahoma State University. After a two year stop in Chicago after graduation, where Anne was born in 1970, Chuck took a marketing position with the Dr. Pepper Company in Dallas, Texas where he and Judy have lived since. Chuck earned numerous honors for his work over the years, including being named as Man of the Year in his industry trade group. He also supervised television advertising campaigns and led Dr. Pepper bottler groups trips that took him and Judy to numerous countries. Thereafter he owned his own business and represented various product manufacturers in the sales and marketing capacities and finished his career as Director of Marketing for Trinity Medical Center in Carrollton. He also served on the Board of Directors for the Metrocrest Hospital Authority.

Chuck has been a lifelong Episcopalian, being baptized and confirmed at St. Andrew’s Church in Kansas City, Missouri. He was taught early on that a life lived in service of others was a life well lived. He has faithfully served the congregation of Good Shepherd Episcopal Church for over 40 years. In his time at Good Shepherd, he has served at nearly every level – Senior Warden, Good Shepherd School Board, Vestry member, the founding class of Stephen’s Ministers, Acolyte, Usher, server and cook at both Wild Game and Tame Game dinners. Chuck especially enjoyed time spent with the men’s group known as the ELFs who made toys for deserving children.

Chuck was known for his passion for golf. Anyone who knew him, knew that he could be found at Brookhaven Country Club every Saturday. Among his many accomplishments on the golf course, he was especially proud of his hole in one, and he shot his age when he was 74 years old.

Chuck loved his family as well. He was a dedicated husband, father, and friend to everyone who knew him. He never met a stranger and always had a “Dad” joke ready to go. One of his favorite things to say when asked how he was doing was, “I am on the right side of the ground so it is a good day!”. Dad, you are still on the right side of the ground. We miss you, love you and can’t wait to see you again.

Chuck was preceded in death by his parents and his sister Rael (Cargill) Vodicka.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his honor to Good Shepherd Episcopal Church of Dallas.

    Chuck was a great board member of the Metrocrest Hospital Authority and was always passionate about doing what was best for the community. Our friendship continued for many years and I always enjoyed his visits to my office. He always wanted to know how the Authority was doing and was glad he was a part of the success of the organization. He will be truly missed.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Thank you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
