Chuck attended and graduated school from Albert Lea. He went on to join the United States Army, where he served in Colorado Springs, Colorado, then moved to Oregon and California for a time.

He moved back home to Albert Lea, where he worked at Interstate Packaging — where he eventually would retire from.

In his free time, Chuck enjoyed fishing, hunting and had quite the green thumb when it came to gardening.

Chuck is survived by his mother, JoAnn; daughter, Danelle Tibbetts, and fiance, Tyler Pritchard; siblings Suzan (Gary) Riley of Carroll, Iowa, Thomas of Iowa, Carrie (Leon Butch) Roberts of Oregon, Lori (Kenn) Register of Albert Lea and Jaysen and Walter of California; and nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father, Harry; brothers Steven and Bryce; a niece, Elizabeth “Liz” Zwinger; grandparents Carrie and Charles Green and Madeline and Joseph Flo; as well as his close friend, Kenny Ohnstad.

Chuck will be sadly missed by family and friends.
