Chuck was born July 25, 1936 and passed away on September 26, 2012 at Kelowna General Hospital in Kelowna, BC. He was born and spent most of his childhood in Premier, BC. He and his family then moved to Bralorne Mine, BC in 1948 when the Premier Mine closed. Later, his family moved to Nelson, BC and then, sometime in Chuck’s adult life, he moved to Vernon, BC. Chuck worked for the BC Forestry Service Lookout in the Falkland area, spring to fall. He never married and leaves behind no close family. It is with great sadness that we let his friends know about his passing.
