Alvin Rawlings "Chuck" Thorne, III, 61, of Lexington Park, MD passed away on June 11, 2017 at Washington Hospital Center. Born June 14, 1955 in Washington, DC, he was the son of Jetta Lou (Vallalay) Thorne and the late Alvin Rawlings Thorne, II.
Chuck graduated from Friendly High School. He moved to St. Mary's County from Waldorf, MD in 2005 and was the restaurant manager for The Captain's Table in Solomons and Waldorf for 11 years. He was a member of the American Legion Post 274 SAL.
Chuck was a rare breed. He was warm, patient, caring, and loving humbled man. He lived his life in a simple manner and was loved and respected by all who knew him. He had a great sense of humor and a smile that showed his kind soul. He was dubbed Sunshine because that's how he lived each day no matter what life brought. His love for his family was unyielding and without judgment. Chuck was plagued with illnesses for many a year, but he never lost sight of any blessing that each day would bring. He was a fighter through all his illnesses and defied so many unfavorable odds that were against him. He will always be remembered for his "Never let em see you sweat" attitude. He lived life to the fullest. He was a blessed man, and we were blessed to have him if only for awhile.
Chuck is survived by his wife, Rossie V. Jaso; his mother, Jetta Lou Thorne of Waldorf, MD; his children, Daniel R. Moudry of Chesapeake Beach, MD, Tracy D. Moudry of Waldorf, MD, Brieann W.
