Charlemagne Lionel Fouche
Charlemagne "Charlie" Lionel Fouche, born November 25, 1960, left this life for his eternal home on February 12, 2020. Charlie was born in Jacksonville Florida. He graduated from the University of Florida with a BS in Journalism. He earned a Master of Divinity degree from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and a Bachelor and Masters in Education from North Georgia University. He also held a Doctorate in Theology. Charlie taught in Dalton Public Schools. He held many certifications which enabled him to teach students in many content areas and grades. He loved teaching and loved interacting with students, who learned to appreciate his dry wit and high expectations for their learning.
Charlie loved books and he loved to study. His favorite topics for study were the Bible, History, and Sports. Charlie was a teacher, a pastor, an author, and an editor for authors of Christian books and publications. He was a sports writer for different publications, contributing articles, research papers and even trivia questions to the Society for American Baseball Research, SABR. He was also an athlete and a coach who understood the mechanics of any sport that he played. He grew up in Florida playing football and baseball through high school and college. He began college on a baseball scholarship and then went on to play football for a year with his beloved Florida Gators as a kicker. He held the distinction of kicking a 60 yard field goal, barefoot, in the old Gator Bowl. Charlie also had a passion for playing the APBA football and baseball board games. He had played the games since his childhood. A few years ago Charlie began to make cards using the statistics of the Negro Leagues Baseball team players that could be used with the APBA board game. He used the process of calculating the statistics of the players in his classes, to teach the students about statistics. The money from the sale of the Negro League cards is donated to Negro Leagues Charities. Charlie was honored to be inducted into the APBA Hall of Fame in 2019.
Charlie is preceded in death by his parents Marie and Edgar Fooshee, and sister Lynn Nelson. He is survived by his wife, Sharon Langley Fouche, their children, Beau Fouche and Georgia Fouche of Dalton, Angel Fouche and Olga Fouche of Athens; his Brother Joseph Fooshee, sister-in-law Melissa Fooshee, and his niece Rebecca Fowler and nephew Joey Fooshee, all of Jacksonville, Florida.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Melanoma Research Alliance www.curemelanoma.org or Parkinson's research.
