WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- With great sadness, the Waynesboro Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office announced that Charles P. “Chuck” Ajemian passed away peacefully at his home Wednesday morning.

He is survived by his wife, Anne Marie, and to his five sons, Charles, J.C., Eric, Lucas, and Jason.

Since his election as Commonwealth’s Attorney in 1997, he faithfully served the citizens of Waynesboro.

Those close to him said he was very involved with his family and the community.

"For me one of the greatest losses personally is a friend and a wonderful mentor. For me, he was always someone I looked up to, someone I could always turn to. He was always honest and he was always very steadfast in what his beliefs were," said Nancy Marion, a former city council member.

"He's been in this community a long time. He knows the people in this community. He knows that not everyone is perfect. He tried to use his background and upbringing to come to just decisions," said Robert Luzader, the Sergeant of Investigations. He also said whoever replaces him will have some big shoes to fill.
