The Corpus Christi Police Department has addressed questions about the funeral of Senior Officer Charlie “Chuck” Williams, who died of COVID complications.

"We have received several inquiries about funeral services for Senior Officer Chuck Williams," said a post from CCPD. "Due to the recent spike in Covid-19 cases, the family felt it best to postpone services for a later time."

Williams had been in law enforcement for 35 years and was assigned to the district's Directed Patrol Division.

CCPD officials say they will announce details as soon as they are available and that the family hopes to hold the funeral in the early months of 2021.
