Royer, Charles "Chuck"  
Salinas Charles "Chuck" Royer Chuck Royer passed away on March 1, 2015 at the age of 86, surrounded by his loving family. While Chuck's life was filled with adventure, his proudest accomplishment was raising a family that "loved hard and loved deep." A natural and gifted storyteller, Chuck entertained his family countless times with the stories of his life. Born and raised in Montana, Chuck was a cowboy who worked on his family's ranch as a boy. He wanted to serve his country during World War II by joining the Navy but he was only 15 years old so he had to get a little "creative" with the paperwork! Even until the end of his life, he remembered details of the many places he visited during this time. After his military service, Chuck worked as a cowboy and often competed in rodeos. It was during these rodeo days that he met his first wife Barbara, a skilled horsewoman herself. Barbara and Chuck had four daughters and when Barbara succumbed to cancer, Chuck continued raising them himself. He wasn't alone for too long, because he soon met his second wife, Liza. Liza affectionately called him "grandpa" since Chuck was a lot older. Chuck showed her that he still had plenty of energy left in him. Together, they had another daughter, Aliza. Chuck's tireless energy showed itself again when, at the age of 69, he and Liza decided to start a new business, LC's Tools in Castroville. With his beloved little dog Tipper at his side, Chuck continued to work six days a week selling and repairing tools until shortly before his passing. Customers were constantly amazed at Chuck's strength and vitality. Chuck's legacy will live on through the hearts and lives of his big family. He is survived by his wife Fremeliza (Liza) Royer and his five daughters Meta Rose Brewster (and husband Kenneth Brewster); Winona Lee Sub Laban (and husband Walid Sub Laban); Kathleen Elizabeth Perez (and husband Victor Perez); Karey Ann Olivas (and husband Pastor Manuel Olivas); Aliza Jo Royer (and husband Ramon Velásquez Moreno). His grandchildren are Barbara Brewster Deree, James Michael Brewster, Tahrier Walid Sub Laban, Nieda Walid Masri (and husband Anas Masri), Amel Walid Resheq (and husband Nihad Resheq), Nadia Walid Almhtsab (and husband Mohammed Almhtsab), Yasmine Walid Sub Laban. Vianna Rose Espinoza (and husband Rigoberto Espinoza), Jonathan Victor Perez, Samantha Marie Perez, Manuel Matthew Olivas, Jr., James Daniel Olivas, Dominic Royer Velásquez, and Joseph Alexander Velásquez. His great grandchildren are Elizabeth, Yusuf, Malik, Jena, Taleen, Halah, Haneen, Maryam, Fatinah. He is also survived by his mother-in-law Melba M. Reed and his longtime friend and "adopted son" Paul Jonathan Farmer. Friends are invited to a viewing at Healey Mortuary, 405 North Sanborn Road, on Tuesday, March 3 from 5-9pm.
