Chuck was born in Bellingham, Washington, to Sequim parents William and Eleanor Duncan.
He was the oldest of five children, Dean (deceased 2012), Russell of Santa Maria, California, James of Chandler, Oklahoma, and Pauline Knudson (deceased 2007).
Chuck attended Sequim grade and high schools and worked many summers in nearby hay fields.
He joined the Air Force on March 12, 1947, and became a corporal with the 20th Weather Squadron. When he was discharged six years later, he settled in the Tacoma, Washington, area.
He traveled back to Sequim whenever possible to visit with family and always knew that Sequim would be home again in the future.
In 1963, he, wife Rose and their two oldest children moved to Chehalis, Washington, where he was to manage LeMay garbage service in Lewis County.
Soon after, Chuck and Rose decided to make their family larger and adopted Lorrie, Paul and David.
In 1993, Chuck retired, and immediately, he and Rose moved to the Dungeness area in Sequim. Rose passed away in 2006.
In 2007, Chuck and Winona met, and he began another segment of his life.
Chuck leaves behind his wife, Winona; brothers Russ and Jim; children Charlene, Chuck Jr., Lorrie, Paul and David; and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, a stepfamily and friends.
Sequim Valley Funeral Chapel was in charge of arrangements. Please leave condolences at www.sequimvalleychapel.com.
