Charles (Chuck) Henry Lester, 72, passed away on March 15, 2023, in Hot Springs, Ark.

He was born in Springdale, Ark., on Aug. 30, 1950.

Chuck graduated from Springdale High School and went on to graduate from the College of the Ozarks in Clarksville, Ark. Chuck loved his career as a production manager, working alongside some of the biggest entertainers in the world.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Vol and Dixie Lester; brother, Tommy Lester; grandparents, Oscar (Jean) Keener and Jim (Rose) Lester.

He is survived by his wife, Cindy Swindle Lester; son, Blake (Tina) Lester; son, Jonathan (Misty) Lester; sister, Susan Alderson; sister-in-law, Lois; nephew, Chuck (Linda) Alderson; niece, Lisa Lester McClelland; great-nephew Bennet; great-nieces, Ashley, Becca, Nicole; loving sisters-in-law, Libby (Steve), Judy (Susan); and family friend, Yvonne.

We will miss Chuck "Dad." He fought hard, but in return loved even harder. His grandkids were the light of his life, Evyn, Vol, Hudson, Swan, Polly, but his "Ride or die" was his wife of 46 years, Cindy Lester.

In true Chuck fashion, a celebration of life "party" is to be set at a later date.

Chuck was an avid lover of animals and rescue. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Guardian Angels Cat Rescue & Adoption Shelter or your local Humane Society.
