William Charles “Chuck” Jakeway Jr was born on June 17, 1960 at the Kadoka Hospital in Kadoka, SD, to William Jakeway Sr and Marilyn (Wilsey) Jakeway. Chuck made his journey to the Spirit World on September 3, 2022, at the Monument Health Home Plus Hospice in Rapid City, SD.
Chuck enjoyed fishing and playing cribbage with his sons, watching the New York Jets and NASCAR whenever possible. Chuck loved his family very dearly and spent as much time as he could with each of them.
One of the last things he was able to do was go with his son JT to the Black Hills Speedway one week before his passing, making a memory that JT will cherish forever.
Two weeks prior to his passing, Chuck was also able to spend some very special time with his eldest son, Dylan and his family, Kellee and William. Chuck loved it when grandson Will wrestled and stayed up with his matches on video.
For many years, Chuck drove truck and worked with heavy equipment. His first job was in Pierre working road construction. He was involved in building several roads and bridges throughout the state.
Chuck moved to Washington State, where he transported apples to California and hauled back meat, but after a time he moved to Wyoming. There he worked for the State Highway Dept and for Propane Services in the Gillette area.
Chuck was a very hard worker until he had some medical issues that made it where he could no longer do a lot of things that he enjoyed.
May Chuck rest in peace with rock-n-roll music always playing in the background. Chuck will forever be in our hearts. Don’t be sad, for he’s not mad at anyone anymore, rest in peace Dad – we all love you now and forever.
Grateful to have been a part of his life are his sons Charles Dylan (Kellee) Jakeway and Jerett “JT” Jakeway; grandchildren William Jakeway, Jerett Jr, Laila, and Bridgette Jakeway; very special friend Cathy Stone; sisters Yvonne (Rick) Mayfield and Lynette Jakeway; and uncle Ronny (Alice) Jakeway.
William was preceded in death by his parents William Sr and Marilyn (Wilsey) Jakeway; grandparents Sarah & Charles Jakeway; and uncles Bud and Jerry Jakeway.
Honorary pallbearers will be Cathy Stone, Gary Matz, and William, Jerrett Jr, Laila, and Bridget Jakeway.
