Charles Richard Lodes Nov 6, 1941 - Aug 27, 2014 OKLAHOMA CITY Charles Richard Lodes was born on November 6, 1941, in Vinita, Oklahoma, where he was baptized and raised. Charley was confirmed in 1953 and graduated Sacred Heart Academy. He played junior college baseball at Connors before being drafted by the Chicago Cubs. Charley played for the Cub's minor league team, the Morristown Cubs, for less than a season before suffering a career- ending injury. He enrolled at Phillips University in Enid, Oklahoma, at 20 years old to complete his degree and start his coaching career. It was there that Charley met his wife of 49 years, Shirley Stabe Lodes. Over the years, Charley and Shirley moved from Enid to Garber to Midwest City to Temple, Texas, to Johnson City, Tennessee, and back to Oklahoma in pursuit of Charley's baseball coaching career. Charley was a husband, a father, and grandfather, a teacher, a mentor and a dreamer. But his true calling and legacy is that of "Coach." His love of life and love of the game drove him to always reach higher and dream bigger than what many thought possible. In his five years at Temple Junior College, TJC was nationally ranked and won 163 games, losing only 89. He took over the East Tennessee State University baseball program in 1977, turning a "glorified intramural program into an NCAA regional fixture." In each of the five previous seasons, the Bucs hadn't won more than seven games. Charley's first year at ETSU the team won 29 games, becoming the Ohio Valley Conference Champion. In his first four seasons, Charley took the team to three NCAA regionals. Charley left the Bucs after six years and 204 wins. Charley and Shirley returned home to Oklahoma in 1983 with Charley becoming the head baseball coach at Oklahoma City University. That first year, the Chiefs were the Midwestern Cities Conference Champions and Charley was named NCAA District 5 Coach of the Year. Two years later, OCU became a member of the NAIA and the Chiefs qualified for the NAIA College World Series. In 1987, Charley got his 500th collegiate win. The Chiefs went back to the NAIA College World Series in 1988, which was Charley's final year of coaching. After OCU, Charley never stopped mentoring his former players and just being "Coach" because to him every player was family. Charley continued his lifelong passion of working with kids and youth, teaching them the skills of baseball and a true understanding of the game. Charley passed away in his home August 27, 2014, entering the Kingdom of Glory at age 72. Charley's family meant the world to him. He is survived by his wife of forty-nine years, Shirley; son, Lance and wife Laura, of Oklahoma City, and their two daughters, whom he adored and who adored him, Lily and Addison; and daughter, Lori and husband Matt, of Washington, D.C. Visitation will be at Mercer- Adams on Sunday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. Services will on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Bethany, Oklahoma, with entombment at Chapel Hill Cemetery.
