Charles “Chuck” Roy Loggains, age 88, of Breckenridge, passed away Monday, March 20, 2023. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, March 24, at First Baptist Church with Pastor Andy Rodgers and Dr. Genoa Goad officiating. Visitation will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, March 23, at Morehart Mortuary.

Chuck was born on August 7, 1934, to Cecil and Roy Loggains in Eden, Texas. He spent his childhood with five brothers and three sisters. As a young adult, the Army became his goal. He served in the Army from 1953 to 1959. He was a part of the 77th Special Forces serving as a master paratrooper and ranger in the Korean War. He loved to brag to the grandkids and anybody that would listen that he made 153 jumps. When returning home in 1959, he began as a contract long-haul trucker. Through trucking and family, he made his way back to Breckenridge. On May 24, 1974, he married his Sweet Zorina, Martha Reece-Loggains in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 1977, he began his own trucking business, CAMKAT. He spent the rest of his days trucking for a living and retiring at the young age of 80. He believed a day working was the best way to spend your day!

His life’s purpose was to spread the love of Jesus. He did so in serving the ministries as a Gideon, a road chaplain, a faithful supporter of the Promise Keepers, the bus driver and leader of LLL (Living Life and Loving it). He is best known for his love and service as leader of the Roughneck Bible Class at First Baptist Church for almost 40 years. The class had open doors ready to spread the love of God to any man, of any class, in any walk of life that wanted to listen. Chuck’s life was best summed up to say he loved everybody he met as family!

He was preceded in death by his parents; one sister, Lulu; five brothers, Guy, Gene, Bill, Frank and Edward; and one daughter, Tanya Latham Gilbreath.

Chuck is survived by his wife of 48 years, Martha Loggains; three children, Jimmy Loggains and wife Lisa, Brett Loggains and companion Susie, and Kyle Latham and wife Christie; eight grandchildren, Tyler Loggains and wife Jessica, Jordan Loggains and wife Erin, Justin Loggains, Kylene Sparks and husband Clay, Tera Eddleman and husband Kirk, Skye Morris, Neely Burrows and husband Russell, and Levi Landon; thirteen great-grandchildren, Dixon Loggains, Kyler and Reece Sparks, Karter and Tommi Nance, Keely Eddleman, Paisley and Zander Morris, Hayden, Barron, Axton, Autumn and Keaton Burrows; two sisters, Wanda McElyea and Ola Elam; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Memorials may be made to Meals on Wheels or to the Roughneck Bible Class at First Baptist Church and may be left at Morehart Mortuary. Condolences may be made online at
