The Tennessee Highway Patrol reported Charles “Chuck” Marcy Jr., 61, of Munford, died in an accident on Saturday, Feb. 13.

Marcy was driving a 2014 Polaris RX8 northbound on Hazel Grove Road, near Hawkins, and hit ice on the roadway.


The accident report stated the ATV went left, then right before flipping and landing on top of Marcy.

His obituary states he was an avid outdoorsman and spent many hours hunting, fishing and camping.

A family man, he is said to have especially enjoyed spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren and many friends. He was known as the life of the party and could always be found on the dance floor.

He worked for World Color Press (Quebecor) from 1988 to 2009 and had been employed by Rose Construction for many years.

Marcy was born May 30, 1959 to Charles Thomas Marcy Sr. and Alice Forbess Marcy. He graduated from Munford High School in 1977 and was of the Assembly of God faith.

In addition to his father, he is survived by his wife of 29 years, Sonja Baskin Marcy; son Jacob (Haley) Marcy of Munford, his daughters Sara (Benjamin) Hawkins and Anna (A.J.) Kiihnl, all of Atoka; sisters Stephanie Ballman and Deborah Frazier of South Carolina, and his beloved grandchildren Owen Reeves Marcy and Ava Sophia Hawkins.
