Mr. Clifford Edward Dingler
Mr. Clifford Edward Dingler passed away at his residence on Friday morning. Known to all as “Chunk,” he was born June 10, 1926, to the late William Roy Dingler Sr. and Elberta Mae Hudson Dingler.
He served in the Army during World War II. For many years, his welding and machine shop was a landmark on the Welcome Road for anybody and everybody, and if you needed some welding or machine work done, that was even better! Chunk was the envy of all the guitar pickers who ever heard him play. He was a fixture at Newnan Music for years and was always willing to play for and encourage younger musicians. If he did not know a song, he would just tell you to start and he’d jump in there with you.
He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Louise Payton Dingler. His children are Carol Hill, Cathy McMahon, Eddie Dingler and Tony Dingler. He was preceded in death by his son, Dennis Alan (Blue) Dingler in 1978. There are six grandchildren.
Funeral arrangements are by McKoon Funeral Home at 38 Jackson Street. Family visitation was Friday, March 15, 6 to 8 p.m. A graveside service will be Saturday, 4 p.m., with Rev. Ken Norton officiating.
