For 31 years, he honorably served in the Navy during the Korean War, as well as the Navy Reserve and Army National Guard. He was also employed at Northwestern Bell Telephone Company and was an engineer at AT&T. Throughout his career he and his wife Lois lived in Sioux Falls, SD, Rapid City, SD, Minneapolis, MN and Chicago, IL, before moving to the Denver area in 1988. He was very active in Kiwanis and Sertoma within the community.

Chuck enjoyed watching the Broncos and the Rockies sports teams. He was also an avid runner, completing several marathons and setting a record for his age group at the Bolder Boulder. We will always remember his devotion to our family and his willingness to always help others.

The family requests that memorials be addressed to the American Cancer Society.
