Charles N. Feezor, Jr., MD played his final round on March 16, 2016, and passed over to the Heavenly Links. Born in Salisbury on February 26, 1937, to the late Charles N. Feezor, Sr., and the late Joyce Agner Feezor, Charles enjoyed growing up as a N.C. boy.
He received his undergraduate degree from Davidson College in 1958, and his MD from Bowman Gray School of Medicine (now Wake Forest University School of Medicine) in 1962, graduating third in his class. He was a member of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity and also Alpha Omega Alpha National Medical Honor Society.
He was married to the former Carolyn Ann Davis. He began his residency at N.C. Baptist Hospital, but left to serve two years in the Air Force as a Flight Surgeon at Eglin AFB in Ft. Walton Beach, Fla. After his discharge, he returned to N.C. to finish his Residency in Urology at Charlotte Memorial Hospital (now CMC).
After two years of practice with Dr. Daniel and Dr. Johnston, he opened his solo urology practice in Charlotte and continued to practice until 2011. His devotion to his patients and to the practice of medicine was reflected in the warm relationships established with all. He was a very caring and compassionate physician, respected and loved by his patients as well as his peers.
Charles established a love for the game of golf at a young age growing up playing at Salisbury Country Club; and although he never received formal lessons, he had a natural affinity for the game.
At the age of 17, he won the N.C. State Junior Golf Championship. He continued as a low-handicap golfer as a member of The Charlotte Country Club from 1970, until his passing.
He was also a member of High Meadows Golf and Country Club in Roaring Gap, NC. He was a member of Davidson United Methodist Church since moving to the area in 1992. He enjoyed many other hobbies including collecting and restoring vintage cars, gun collecting and shooting, and building and flying model airplanes.
All of these were shared with his son and together they spent many hours of fun. He also loved the time he spent at his home which he referred to as “The Feezor Farm,” working in his beautiful rose gardens or down in his shop. Time spent with his family at home or at the family beach house in Sunset Beach was cherished. He was a lover of animals and, especially, all of his pets, both feline and canine.
He is survived by his loving wife Kathleen Feezor; son, Charles N. Feezor, III, of Clarksville, Md.; daughter, Kimberly Feezor Byrd (James) of Pinehurst; son, Richard Thomas Feezor of Morganton; stepdaughter, Nikole Kennerly (Timothy) of Lexington; brother, Michael D. Feezor, PHD of Chapel Hill; grandchildren, Rachel Cole Byrd, Charles Davis Byrd, Carolyn Noelle Feezor, Karoline Grace Kennerly, Krista Jean Kennerly, and Jackson Price Kennerly; nephew, Michael C.D. Feezor; and extended family.
He is also survived by his loyal and loving chocolate lab pal, Bentley.
He will be greatly missed by all and remembered as a loving, caring man who knew no strangers and made all comfortable with his beautiful smile. His sense of humor and brilliant mind will live on in all of those who loved him. Visitation and
