He was born on a cotton farm on July 29, 1939 in Alexandria, Louisiana to Charles M. Bollar, Sr. and Helen Robert Bollar, who preceded him in death.
Chuck graduated from LSU with an architectural design degree. He married his high school sweetheart and loving wife of 53 years, Ione Jeffery.
Chuck entered the Army in 1962 as a second lieutenant. He and Ione spent two years seeing Europe, especially its grand architecture. Their neighbors introduced them to the Navigators, and upon returning to the US, they joined the staff for 15 years, ministering all over the country.
Chuck spent 33 years as a gifted architect with a primary passion for helping churches and non-profits design and construct facilities uniquely suited to their missions. He was gifted at transforming goals and objectives into practical facilities.
Chuck will be remembered for his sound biblical wisdom and desire to help others understand God's Word. He and Ione have hosted a weekly Bible study for over 30 years.
Chuck served numerous churches as an elder, Bible teacher and consultant. He brought a rare combination of common sense and God's wisdom to every discussion.
