Charles Mason Backer Obituary
December 1, 1941 - January 13, 2017 Charles (Chuck) Mason Backer passed away in Thousand Oaks, CA on January 13, 2017 after a valiant battle with metastatic lung cancer. He was a beloved, father, grandfather, and dear friend. Chuck was born in Greeley, Colorado in 1941, the son of Russell and Leta (Walter) Backer. On January 29, 1960, he married his high school sweetheart, Paula (Briley) Lambert. They moved to California in 1964 where Chuck built a successful career in the computer industry. While they divorced after 17 years, Chuck and Paula remained the closest of friends. Chuck was a steadfast LA Dodgers and Denver Broncos fan, knew everything there was to know about cars, loved photography and golf, but his greatest joy was found in his grandchildren and his daughters' dogs. Chuck is survived by his ex-wife and best friend, Paula, his children Barri (Cork) and Whitney (Jon), and his twin grandsons, Ian and Bailey. The family has opted to have a private family dinner in his honor on February 4 at one of Chuck's favorite restaurants.
