Willie Chiles was born in Greenwood County, South Carolina on May 2, 1921. He was the last of five children born to David Luke and Nancy Nobles Chiles. His lifetime memories are of his beloved hometown, Augusta. Willie served as an officer in the United States Army during World War II and was stationed in the European Theater where he served with distinction.

Willie modeled what it was to be a Christian, as he read his Bible daily, was fully committed to his church family and acted as a Christian. He was married to his beloved Maude Smith Chiles (1923- 2001) for more than 50 years. From this union one child was joyously welcomed, William David Chiles Esq.(1949-2011).

A retiree of The United States Postal Service, Willie was an avid exercise enthusiast, fisherman and golfer. How he enjoyed getting out on the greens!

To all who have said a prayer or been otherwise supportive, the family extends our deepest gratitude.

The family will receive friends Tuesday, August 22, 2017 from 5:30-7:30 pm at the funeral home. Homegoing service will be conducted Wednesday, August 23, 2017 at 11:00 am at Bethel A.M.E. Church, 623 Crawford Avenue, Augusta, GA. Interment will be in Southview Cemetery.
