Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Charles “Chuck” Frederick Karle, 61, passed away on Thursday, March 31, 2022, at his home in Sandpoint, ID. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
Chuck was born on August 14, 1960, in Castro Valley, California, to Floyd and Patricia
(Stanaland) Karle. When he was young, he moved with his family to the Reno, Nevada area. He loved baseball and played multiple sports. He enjoyed spending time with his brother and fellow fun-loving friends, engaging in countless shenanigans with them before graduating from Edward C. Reed High School in 1978. Shortly after, he began working for Reno Auto Wrecking, in a career that he would enjoy for many years.
He met the love of his life, Robyn, in 1983. Two years later, the couple were married. In late 1985, they welcomed the birth of their son Christian, and three years later were blessed with their second son Kelly.
In 1993, Chuck moved with his family to Sandpoint and purchased Dad’s Auto Wrecking, running the company for 15 years. Later, he worked in the concrete, construction, and automotive parts industries.
Chuck continued playing sports throughout his life, especially golf, and always welcomed the opportunity to hit the course with his sons. He loved to ride motorcycles and was a big fan of auto racing. He greatly enjoyed hunting and camping trips with his family, producing everlasting memories. He was heavily involved in his children’s sports careers, both as a fan and a coach. He also invested his time in his boys’ lives through Boy Scouts of America programs.
Chuck loved music, playing his guitar or harmonica, writing songs, and singing. He was fond of country music and 70’s and 80’s bands such as Tom Petty and AC/DC. He had a blast at every karaoke night with Robyn, and loved listening to her sing at open mic.
Everyone who met Chuck would agree that he was both a jokester and a selfless man, and would surely have a story to tell about him. He loved to laugh and make others laugh, and he was always willing to help anyone. The most important things to Chuck were faith and his family. He supported his wife, children, and grandchildren in everything they did, and was the most loving man a family could ask for.
He is survived by his wife Robyn; sons Christian (Brianna) Karle and Kelly (Melodie) Karle; three grand-children, Kayden, Ashlyn and Lucas; two aunts Carol and Nevada; three nieces; and many cousins, extended family and close friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents and his brother Fred.
