Chuck was always active in sports such as, track, tennis, golf, and racquetball. He was proud of the record he held in pole vaulting and high jump at the Thomas Jefferson High School.

Chuck later joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Church and he and JoAn were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on June 23, 1990. “Pop” or Pa Pa Chuck as the grandkids called him had many fun times camping and hanging with the family at big holiday functions. In his sixties, he enjoyed going camping in his motorhome and eventually traded it in for full blown glamping, at the “Alaskan” up Ogden Canyon, which was his favorite!

He is survived by his sons, Chad, and Reed, his siblings, Sheryl Tippit, Barbara Sullan and Douglas Ralston. Step Children, Debbie, Matthew, and Greg.
