West, Charles R.

West, Charles "Chuck" Robert
1/30/1961 - 5/7/2017
Chuck's passing was unexpected. A beloved son. He was born in Philadelphia, PA and raised in Wayne, PA where he was an active competitive swimmer until 1973 when the family moved to Fullerton, CA. Graduated from Fullerton Union HS in 1979; he briefly attended Cal State Fullerton. Active in the Youth Soccer League, his team enjoyed a trip to Germany to play teams in several German cities while staying with German families. Employed by Wells Fargo security services and Round Table Pizza. His involvement with the Boy Scouts instilled a lifelong love for wilderness and backpack camping which he did so at every opportunity. He was happiest when he could roam alone for days on end in the High Sierras or Desert Wilderness. He left behind hundreds of photos of mountains, lakes, trees and trails that now allow us the privilege of enjoying what he saw through his eyes. Never married, he was predeceased by his mother Bobbie West. Survived by his father Reed West, brother William (wife Sharon) and other family. Interment will be private at Loma Vista Memorial Park, Fullerton. "May your spirit now roam forever free in the High Sierras." - with love, your Family.
