SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Legendary Charger Chuck Muncie is being remembered for his talents on the football field and a larger-than-life personality.

"Chuck was a loud laugher... His whole being... He just loved life and that's what I remember about Chuck 'til I saw him last year at the alumni game," said Pastor Miles McPherson.

A memorial service was held Saturday at the Rock Church in Point Loma for the former NFL running back.

He died of a heart attack earlier this month at the age of 60. Muncie played for the Chargers in the early 80s.

His image was tarnished with drug problems but he turned his life around and started a youth foundation for troubled kids.
