He suffered a cardiac event while riding his bicycle in the mountains. He received the best possible care at Mission Hospital in Asheville. Charles was born on August 23, 1948, in St. Louis, Missouri, to Charles and Edith Smith. In 1957, he moved to Venice, Florida, where his fourth grade teacher gave him the nickname 'Chas.' Chas began tracking stocks as early as age 17. He was reading Barron's and the Wall Street Journal when his schoolmates were perusing the pages of Sports Illustrated. He graduated from Venice High School in 1966, and went on to receive a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Florida State University in 1970. Chas was the founder and CEO of CPS Investment Advisors, an independent financial advisory firm located in Lakeland, Florida. Chas had over 30 years of experience in financial planning, income tax, and accounting. He was nationally recognized as an author and lecturer on topics of investments, financial planning, and wealth accumulation. He also served on the prestigious Fidelity Investments Advisory Council. In 1994, CPS Investment Advisors formed the CPAlliance, a unique asset management program partnering with other CPA firms across the country. In 2000, CPS Investment Advisors joined 79 other independent financial advisory firms across the country in founding the nation's first advisor-owned, federally-chartered trust company, National Advisors Trust Company, which now operates in all 50 states. In 2015, CPS Investment Advisors was ranked #3 of the Top 100 Fee-Only Wealth Management Firms by CNBC. Also in 2015, Florida Trend Magazine ranked CPS Investment Advisors as one of the top businesses to work for in the state. Chas's mantra was helping people achieve financial independence. He is survived by a devoted team of business partners and staff. He leaves an incredible legacy of service and commitment to his family, his clients, and his profession. Throughout his 40 years in Lakeland, Chas served as a leader, a contributor, and a philanthropist to numerous community organizations. He served on the Board of Trustees for Florida Southern College, was a Past President of the Polk Chapter of the Florida Institute of CPA's, and was a past member of the finance committee and endowment fund for the Church of the Resurrection. He also served as a correspondent to the Lakeland Ledger, contributing articles focused on financial planning. He was a long-standing member of the Kiwanis Club of Lakeland and the Polk Senior Games, where he also served on the Board of Directors. Chas was an avid triathlete, and enjoyed running around Lake Hollingsworth, swimming at the Lakeland Yacht & Country Club, and biking in both Florida and in the mountains of North Carolina. He loved the Beach Boys, Florida State football, playing cards, his Airedales, and goofy pranks with his grandchildren. Most of all, he enjoyed vacationing with his family at his homes in both Maggie Valley and in Manasota Key. Chas is survived by his wife, Susan L. Smith, and his three daughters, Shelley (Oak) Duke of Tallahassee, Lindsey (Matthew) Campbell of St. Petersburg, and Ashley (David) Murphy of Lakeland.
