Charles Robert Huggins, known by everyone as Chuck, passed away on October 13 in Greeley, Colorado after a long illness. Chuck was born in Denver, Colorado to parents Robert and Esther (Pedersen) Huggins. He grew up in Golden, and graduated from Golden High School in 1975. His love of music really took off when he became active in Band during junior high and high school, where he played the sousaphone and tuba.

After high school, Chuck worked as a forklift operator, and was very proud that he lost a lot of weight before attending his 10-year high school class reunion in 1985. He joined the army shortly after that, but was unable to complete basic training due to health issues. He suffered a debilitating injury a few years later from an accident where he was hit by a drunk driver. In 2009, he moved to Greeley to be closer to his sister.

Chuck enjoyed his solitude, and loved to watch old movies and read about astronomy. He had several poster-sized photos of stars, galaxies and nebulas on the walls in his apartment. Friends and neighbors would keep him company, and they gathered frequently to sit outside and talk until illness prevented him from getting out very much. He will be remembered for his dry sense of humor and his ability to make them laugh with his impersonations and foreign accents.

Chuck is preceded in death by his parents, and is survived by his sister Debi (John) Oster of Kersey, nephews Paul Oster of LaSalle, Dan (Lindsey) Oster of Evans, and Eric (Toni) Oster of Colorado Springs, along with two great nieces, three great nephews and several cousins. In lieu of gifts or flowers, the family asks that donations be made to your local Hospice organization.

I remember how happy I was when I was a kid when Uncle Chuck would come to the farm for a visit. We (Paul, Danny & me) would go shooting regularly with our Dad (Jay). But if Uncle Chuck came up. He would have cool new guns to shoot. If I remember right I shoot my first Revolver and AK-47 he owned.
Now I'm older I will always remember him loving to talk to me about the Army. He always loved to hear my storys about working on the tanks. He would always tell me he wanted to be a tank driver. But the Army would not let him because of health issues. Chuck also started to collect Flags. He was vary happy when I brought him back the South Korean Flag. He was a vary nice Uncle to me and my Family and will be missed.
