Charles “Charlie / Chuck” Theodore Zeigler passed away peacefully on November 28th, 2019 at his home in The Dalles, Oregon. He was 65 years of age at the time of his passing.

Charlie was born on November 2nd, 1954 in Harvey, North Dakota to Felix Owen Zeigler and Gloria Ardella (Volk) Zeigler. He was the second youngest of six children. The family moved to Anaconda, MT in 1956 before moving to The Dalles in 1958. Charlie attended elementary – high school in The Dalles. From 1972 – 1974, he served in the US Marine Corps and was stationed at Camp Pendelton, CA.

Over the years, Charlie worked as a Forestry Aide for the US Forestry Service, a nurse’s aide for the Oregon State Hospital and from 1992 – 2001, he worked as a cell operator with Northwest Aluminum Company. He had many hobbies including gardening, woodworking, crabbing at the beach, fishing, listening to music and playing guitar with friends and family. He was always quick with a hug and a smile. The thing he enjoyed the most were his nieces, nephews and especially his grandchildren…whom he adored.
