Chuck Lamson passed away on Nov. 23, 2015, in Evergreen. Chuck was born in Webster City, Iowa, to Robert and Margaret Lamson. He graduated from the University of Wyoming in 1961.
Chuck had a long and distinguished athletic career. Among his collegiate awards were Honorable Mention All-America in 1960 and 1961, Unanimous All-Conference Selection, Sports Illustrated "Back of the Week" in 1961, Best Student Athlete in 1962, and he was named captain of the football team in 1961.
