Charles “Pewee” Troy Dyche, Jr. passed away peacefully in his sleep after a long battle of lung cancer that he managed with grace and courage, on April 3, 2016 in Fairhope, AL. He was a loving and devoted husband and father. Charles was a native of Greenville, MS but resided in Daphne, AL for the last 8 years. He is an Army Vet who served and protected his country in the Vietman War. He had a tremendous love for fishing, hunting, and sports. He enjoyed all of these things with his family and friends. Anyone who knew Charles knew he never met a stranger, was a genuine great man, and would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. He always lived by and instilled in his children the saying, “Treat the janitor with the same respect as the CEO.” Charles will always be remembered for his contagious smile, huge heart, big bear hugs, infectious laugh, and generous spirit. He was one of a kind and missed dearly by all that knew him.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Charles Troy Dyche, Sr. and Frances Jeanette Dyche and his brother, Michael Wayne Dyche.

    Brenda and Sharon. I am sorry for the loss of your brother Charles. Of course for me and others from the old nieghborhood he is better remembered as Pewee. We tend to lose personal connections as we get older but the times shared as children growing up seem to be ever present. May god bless you and yours. Jim.
