Charles T Simmons Obituary
Charles T. "Chuck" Simmons passed peacefully January 21, 2014 while hospitalized for treatment of complications from diabetes. Following a twenty year Air Force career during which time he specialized in Commissary, Exchange and supply operations, he enjoyed a second full career with Safeway Stores.

Following retirement from Safeway he found that he missed the daily interactions with customers and co-workers and soon returned to familiar retail surroundings and worked an additional 10 years part time for Kmart.

His military career included tours of service in remote installations in Alaska and on the battlefields of Vietnam.

He was born January 5, 1933 to John and Beatrice Simmons of Elkton, Maryland. He was preceded in death by parents, siblings and his wife Erma.

He is survived by his daughters, Deborah D'Annunzio and Tina Bolejack and by his sons, Howard and Chuck Simmons, his stepson, Dave Rose, as well as grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Chuck and Erma were members of First Lutheran Church in Colorado Springs.

At Chuck's request, a public graveside memorial, with military honors will be February 4 at 10:30 a.m. at Memorial Gardens, 3825 Airport Road.
