1957 – 2020
Sadly we lost a good friend this week. Charles “Chuck” Deem was a good friend, traveling companion, and my brother-in-law. We married sisters Meg (to Chuck) and Amy (to me). We’d traveled together to: Amsterdam, Belgium, Prague, Germany, Paris, Croatia, Machu Picchu, Provence France, Ireland, England, Colorado, Wisconsin, Missouri, and other destinations in the US. I am blessed with amazing and fun memories of Chuck.
Chuck was an engineer by education and vocation, but he had the heart of an adventurer. Raised in the hills of West Virginia he was a proud Mountaineer Alumni of West Virginia University (“Go ‘Ears!!!”). He was an avid hunter and fisherman and had an affection for all things in nature, but above all things Chuck loved his wife Meg. They both enjoyed travel to new places, meeting new people, trying local wine & foods (but mostly Chuck focused on desserts). You couldn’t bribe Chuck with money, power, or privilege, but if you happened to have some chocolate… well that was a different story!!!
We’ll all miss you, my brother. Bons voyages, mon frère.
