Upon graduation from Kelso high school Charles married his sweetheart and love of his life Linda West in the LDS Logan temple September 28th 1962 and they were married 60 years. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints and held various callings and was in the bishopric as the 2nd counselor approximately 1988 to 1990. He worked straight out of high school for Longview Fibre paper mill and retired in 2003 after 44 years.
Chuck became an advocate for food storage and emergency preparedness and he and his wife began selling Bosch and Magic Mill small kitchen appliances to the Longview and Kelso communities for over 35 years. They made a huge impact at the county fair each year with their amazing whole wheat bread smothered in butter and honey, that became synonymous with their fair booth every year and had people waiting in line for a slice of happiness. This went on for many years, and finally turned into an amazing business in the community called Lindas Kitchen Specialties and he was instrumental in facilitating the popular classes for breadmaking and emergency preparedness taught by his wife Linda. He raised his 6 children and helped raise many of his grandchildren by opening his home and heart to anyone who needed a hand.
As a man of true integrity, He was honest in all his dealings and could always be counted on to follow through with any task. His stability as the patriarch of the family was immeasurable.
He had his own style and great hair. He loved all sports but especially the Highlanders, Huskies and the Hawks (Sea Hawks) He loved watching his children and grandkids play sports and was usually there in the stands cheering them on.
Charles or Chuck as he was commonly called was truly a great man whose impact will be forever felt by his family, that loves him dearly. He was a selfless man whose passing left and unfillable gap in the hearts of his loved ones. His ability to sacrifice, provide, support, forgive, and love will be forever engrained in all he knew.
