In Memory of

Charles Clifford Botts IV “Chaz”

January 4, 1977 - November 23, 2023


Charles Clifford Botts IV “Chaz”, 46, of Lee’s Summit, MO sadly left us on November 23, 2023.  He is survived by his wife Lee Anne Botts, daughters Callee and Allee Botts, Father Charles Clifford Botts III, stepmother Mary Botts, Half-brother Chris Botts, Half-sister’s Liz, Catie and Mel, Uncle Kennth Shanks and half niece Alyssa Hylton.  He was preceded in death by his mother Judy Shanks and sister Stacey Hylton.  A funeral service will be held in his honor at Langsford Funeral Home, Saturday December 2, 2023, visitation at 10am and service at 11am.

Chaz went to Savannah High School and competed in many sports, but his favorites were baseball and football.  Then he attended Missouri Western State University, and he had a variety of jobs, but ended up working as a network engineer, which allowed him to work from home and enabled him to spend more time ubering the girls around.  His favorite thing to do was watching his daughters do whatever they were doing at that time.  Throughout his life he was always tinkering on cars, watching baseball and football, hanging out with friends and being a wonderful husband and dad.  He was always kind and polite to anyone and everyone he would meet.  He’d be the guy that would give you the shirt off his back.

In lieu of donations there is a fund that has been established for his daughters’ athletics and college.

The account is at BOA but I have also set up a Venmo account.

I have known Chaz since elementary school, he was always one of the nicest people. Another classmate gone way too soon. Prayers to his wife, daughters and family.

Lee Anne,

We also want to support you and the girls in other ways ongoingly as needed. We’re always here for you and not just saying this to be polite!

Lee Anne, dear Sister. My sincere fellings for you and your daugthers. I’m here for whatever you need. Be strong sis.

Words cannot express the thoughts and feelings that I have right now. Chaz was one of kind with a smile that would light up a room. I am going to miss our conversations where you could always tell he was the proudest papa out there. Always so excited and proud of his daughters. You will be missed my friend, but the memories and positive energy you always had will be with us all forever.
