Chuck spent the majority of his work life in the agricultural feed business and his last few years as a rural mail carrier. His greatest satisfaction was in the gift of having a loving and caring family. Some of his favorites: dancing with his wife; reading to his grandkids; coffee at Nootzie's; lunch with Eileen Trites; a good crossword puzzle; and a western book, song or movie.

Charles is survived by his wife, JoAnn (Sorum) Meyer; their six children, Scott (Lori), Chris (Sarah), Becky (Mark), Tom, Mary (Dan) and Dave (Natalie), 17 of 18 grandchildren; his sister, Glenna Faye (Allen) Fitzgerald; and brother, Greg (Peg) Meyer.

He was preceded in death by his father, Glen; mother, Alice; and granddaughter, Madeline.
