Charles "Chuck" Hite Life Story

Charles Jessie “Chuck” Hite, 54, of Goshen, passed away on Friday, November 10, 2023, at Goshen Hospital. He was born on September 19, 1969, in Elkhart, to the late Charles Dean and Marianne (Wiese) Hite, who survives. On October 5, 2007, Chuck married the love of his life, Sasha Lung, in Goshen.

Chuck is survived by his loving wife of 16 years, Sasha Hite, of Goshen; children, Zachery (Alissa) Hite of Elkhart, Chandler Gadson of Goshen, Jessica (Adam) Leszczynski of Elkhart, and Romie Hite of Goshen; grandchildren, Ally Leszczynski and Ayden Hite, both of Elkhart; mother, Marianne Hite of Goshen; brother, Marcus Dean Hite of Goshen; beloved pug, Piggy; five feline friends, Zia, Loki, Willow, Mochi, and Sophie; and a loving host of extended family, friends, and acquaintances.

In accordance with the family’s wishes, cremation has been chosen. Services for Chuck will be held on Saturday, December 2, 2023, at Billings Funeral Home with a memorial visitation from 1 PM to 3 PM and a service to immediately follow beginning at 3 PM. Pastor Jim Brown will be officiating.

Chuck recently worked for Winnebago in Middlebury as a line worker for three years, enjoying his job each and every day.

In his spare time, Chuck could be found creating music, most notably 80s-style rock and roll, while playing his beloved guitar. He was a member of several bands throughout his life and learned to play the guitar when he was just 10 years old. At one point in his life, Chuck had the opportunity of a lifetime and was invited to play on stage at the Grand Ole Opry, serving as a testament to his love of the music world. When not playing the guitar, Chuck could also be found singing his heart out in a few rounds of karaoke, singing along to the rock classics of his time.

Besides music, Chuck also liked cooking, being most famous for his cheese dip and mozzarella sticks, while also simply enjoying the company of his friends, family, and pets during his life. Most notably, Chuck adored his father, Charles Dean, and missed him dearly since his passing, now having the opportunity to be reunited with him once again.

Chuck will best be remembered as a good friend while also notably being called a “smartass” at times. He was outspoken, tending to tell it the way it is, while still remaining a loving husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, and friend. Chuck, along with all the love, music, and joy he shared, will be dearly missed by those whose hearts he touched throughout his life.
