Charles Delbert Alvord
December 21, 1949 – February 8, 2021
Charles (Chuck) Delbert Alvord, 71, of Colorado Springs, CO, passed away peacefully on February 8th, 2021. He was the beloved husband of Robin (Flook) Alvord for 47 years. Born in White Fish, Montana, he was the son of Adelbert and Virginia Alvord and brother of late Dennis Alvord. Chuck is survived by his two children, Christina Logan, and her husband Allyn Logan, of Salida, CO and Daniel Alvord and his wife Kyle Akeley, of Middlebury, CT.
Born in White Fish, Chuck moved to Arizona in his early teens. In 1969, Chuck was drafted into the Army. He served during the Vietnam War and was stationed at Fort Eustis, Virginia. After his service, Chuck returned to Arizona, where he met his wife. Chuck, Robin, and their beloved dog Festus lived in Flagstaff, where they enjoyed traveling to Oak Creek Canyon, a fond memory of their early marriage. In 1978, Chuck and Robin decided to move from Arizona. They originally intended to move to Denver, but fell in love with Colorado Springs and never left.
Chuck worked throughout his adult life as a private contractor, building his business to a staff of 6. Chuck retired in 2006, after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s. He was best known for his crystal blue eyes, immense love of classic rock and being an avid fan of the Broncos and Rockies. A man of few words, Chuck’s sarcastic sense of humor lightened the world of everyone around him. His optimism and love for his family drove his every decision.
A private, family funeral was held in his honor shortly after he passed. A larger memorial will be planned and announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Parkinson’s Foundation.
