F.A.G. Mem.# 117949925
The following Obit. was published in the McDonough IL County Voice. You might consider adding this to the Find A Grave Memorial # 117949925.

"Charles F. Sides, 82, passed away Sept. 26, 2013, at home, following a courageous battle with cancer.
He was born Oct. 7, 1930, in Dallas, Texas, to Charlie and Opal (Hopkins) Sides.
He graduated from Carter Riverside High School in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1949. From there, he played baseball for the Cleveland Indians AAA Farm Club in Lake Charles, La. He then enlisted in the U.S.A.F. and served during the Korean War, stationed at Holloman Air Force Base at Alamogordo, (White Sands) New Mexico. Under Colonel Stapp, he was involved in the testing of the chimpanzees for air and space travel.
He met Betty Terhune in Alamogordo, and they married in Petersburg, Ill., in June 30, 1956.
Charlie graduated from TCU in 1959. He began his extensive football coaching career in Illinois.
Charlie coached in many Illinois locations. Highlights of his coaching career included, assistant football coach at University of Illinois, head coach at Bloom Township High School, Chicago Heights, Rushville High School and Macomb High School. He then had the opportunity to be the offensive coordinator for the American Football Association's Alabama Vulcans. Some of his most valuable memories were of his time spent in Rushville and Macomb with his players and the community.
We would like to give a special thanks to those who traveled from Rushville to visit with him a few weeks ago, including Tim and Sheila Ward, Chuck Harris and Mike Bartlow.
In addition, he was so pleased to receive letters and phone calls from many past players, coaches and friends from the Rushville and Macomb area.
Charlie returned to Texas to continue his coaching career. He married Rita Nolan in 1983 and retired from Rockwall ISD. Together Charlie and Rita enjoyed raising and competing cutting horses throughout his retirement.
Charlie is survived by wife, Rita, of Terrell, Texas; children Gary (wife Myra) of Monroe, N.C., Kathe Moseley (husband Gary) of Frisco, Texas, LuAnn Kube (husband Kurt) of Frisco, Texas, and Linda Waldsmith (husband Rick) of Savannah, Mo.; and nine grandchildren.
Arrangements are by New Hope Funeral Home in Sunnyvale, Texas. Graveside services to be Oct. 9, at the Dallas-Ft. Worth National Cemetery."
