Charles Dungan

Charles B. Dungan, Jr., 73, of Louisville, Tenn., passed away Sunday, Jan. 11, 2015, at Johns Hopkins Hospital following a brief illness. He was surrounded by family and close friends who traveled to be with him. He is preceded in death by his father, Charles B. Dungan, Sr., his mother, Helen Rose Cowell Dungan, and his aunt, Grace Elizabeth Cowell. An Eagle Scout, Charles was a graduate of Knoxville Catholic High School and University of Tennessee Law School, where he was first in his class. Following graduation, he served as a captain in the Judge Advocate General’s Office of the United States Air Force and was a veteran of the Vietnam War. Upon return from his military duty, he lived and practiced law in Maryville, Tenn. In his 49 years of practicing law, he was appointed to the position of court judge of the 30th Judicial Circuit in Blount County, Tenn., was assistant district attorney, and served in the Public Defender’s Office. For the last 25 years, he was a partner in the firm Dungan and Meares, now Dungan, Meares, and Webb. Charles had a kind and generous spirit, and a heart that filled any room he entered. He was quick to laugh and loved a good joke. He was a master storyteller. He proudly suffered through the ups and downs of his golf game, and even had two holes in one. He was an exceptional husband, father and friend, and the perfect grandfather. He will be profoundly missed by those who loved him, and his memory will live forever in the kindness and attention he showed to others. He is survived by his wife, Jan Dungan; sister, Grace Elizabeth “Betty” Dungan; daughters, Stephanie Dungan Ebuna (Mike), Elizabeth Dungan Crosby (Neil), Susan Eby Stockdale (Mitch), and Carrie Eby Mills (Snell); grandchildren, Kendall Crosby Weichold (Michael), Taylor Crosby, Abby Crosby, Reagan Crosby, and Landon Ebuna; great grandchildren, Jacob Weichold and TJ Weichold. The family wishes to acknowledge former wife Mary Nell Dungan, “adopted son” Tim Williamson, and lifelong friend Rom Meares for their love and support. The family also wishes to thank his friends and law partners Mike Meares and Laura Webb for their wisdom and extraordinary devotion. In lieu of flowers, please direct donations to the Fund for Johns Hopkins Medicine, 750 East Pratt Street, 17th Floor, Baltimore, MD 21202. There will be a celebration of life on Sunday, Jan. 25, at 3 p.m. at the Clayton Center for the Arts in Maryville, Tenn.
