Chuck was known to the general public as Del Shannon, the singer-songwriter who wrote and recorded the #1 record Runaway in 1961 plus numerous other songs. The flip side of Del Shannon's first hit was Jody. Chuck and Shirl liked the song well enough to name their third child after it.
Sadly, Jody Lynne passed away June 6th, 2004 from Cancer.
