Charles Stuart Rushmer II completed his journey here on earth on July 16th, 2021 after a long battle with Dementia. Chuck was born in Springfield, Colorado, but lived his whole life in Colorado Springs. Chuck is survived by his wife Lisa Rushmer, his daughter Aubrei Beyers, son Nathan Conway and 4 grandchildren. Chuck was well known in Colorado Springs as a premier custom home builder, building contemporary and or southwest homes. After graduating college, Chuck became a math teacher at Widefield Junior High for 7 years. Then one summer, Chuck built his 1st house, which was featured in Better Homes and Gardens Magazine. Needless to say….. that became his passion and the beginning of an incredible career. Chuck was the life of the party where ever he went and brought laughter and joy to many. His charisma, light and gentle nature will truly be missed.

I had the pleasure of knowing Chuck for many years.He was a generous and caring person.He would make the time to become involved in my life when it was not always the best time for him.Chuck cared about my kids and their achievements as if they were his own kids.(of course he would remind me that it was my wife´s DNA that was responsible for their success and had little to do with me.) My fondest memories of Chuck were our Saturday morning racquetball games at the "Y".We would play until our feet and knees were shot. He was a marvelous "trash talking " competitor.He would give it and take it with a smile.(Shiv,Chuck and I would always laugh off the results over breakfast.)Chuck, I will pray for you and your family.You we´re a wonderful and joyful friend.

Our family was lucky enough to call Chuck a friend for many years as I was growing up. Of the many memories that come to mind, I am grateful he came to help my dad put up our first basketball hoop (and challenged us to our first official game) and helped me figure out how to finance my freshman year of college by "hiring" me to clean his spotless office once a week. So many kindnesses. Chuck had a huge heart and gave our family many happy memories.

My dad, Joe Griebel, and Chuck were close friends while I was growing up. They were racquetball buddies. My favorite memory of Chuckie Rushmer (as we called him) was when he came by our house to see our new deck. In reality he was there to take us to the airport for a surprise trip to Disneyland. He was so happy to be able to be part of the surprise trip our parents had planned. It is a memory that I'll always treasure. Such a great man!

I was in Mr. Rushmer math class. He was one of my favorite teachers. He always gave his all to his students and was always there for them. RIP God has another Angel around the throne tonight.

Chuck was in the Widefield graduating class of 1964 with me and my husband, Claude. They were good friends who played sports together and spent time together in other ways too. I remember the time they bought a stock car one summer, working on it and racing it till they couldn't fix it anymore. There are so many good memories! Chuck had a huge personality which lit up a room when he was there.

My family has so many fond memories of Chuck. He was our neighbor and friend in Manitou Springs for many years. My children stayed in his home when I made several business trips. This was one outstanding man and he will be missed.

While I probably haven't seen Chuck in 35 years or more I have many fond memories of him. He was my neighbor in Manitou Springs for several years. I was in my teens and challenged him to a one-on-one basketball game on a basketball court in my backyard that he and my dad built together. Chuck was competitive and didn't cut me any slack even though he was a foot and a half taller than me at the time. He blocked my shots, stole the ball and muscled me around the court. It was humbling. A great life lesson. I worked on a couple of Chuck's construction sites for him cleaning up and doing odd jobs as a teenager, he was always smiling, funny and a great guy to work for. I wish his best to the family. Please know that Chuck touched a lot of lives and was a positive influence on many people. He will be missed.
