Chuck went to Bakersfield High School, where he cemented his love of football. After graduating in 1982, he went onto play at Taft College and Weber State. Following his passion, he enjoyed many years of coaching football at both Bakersfield High School, and Maricopa High School. "Coach" was a name he was proud to be called. Chuck was a diehard Driller, USC, and Raiders fan. He loved sharing his love of football with his family and friends. Golf became a fun pastime and he looked forward to his weekend rounds with his close buddies. Chuck was blessed and enjoyed many things, but none more than being a PAPA! He embraced his role, and showed his love for his grandchildren at every turn. He loved to visit them in Texas. He worked for the Dept. of Corrections for the last 25 years, thriving in a career he loved, and making friendships that would last a lifetime. We take comfort in knowing we will see him again. Until then, we will keep his memory alive in our hearts.

Viewing will be held Tuesday, January 9th, 5-9 p.m. at Hillcrest Memorial Park. Funeral Service will be held Wednesday, January 10th, 11 a.m. Hillcrest. Reception to follow at A Royal Palace, District Blvd.
