With family by his side Charles Scott "Charlie" "Chuck" Amundson, 42, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, July 6, 2014, of melanoma.
Charlie was born Dec. 12, 1971, in Rochester, Minn., to Larry and Connie Amundson.
Charlie's father preceded him in death.
He leaves behind: his adoring mother, Connie; loving children, Brady and Kayla, of Brainerd, Minn.; Aunt Barb and Uncle Dennis Pritchett, who Charlie lovingly referred to as his second parents, Aunt Carolyn, who helped him through tough times, and many loved ones.
Charlie's passion in life was hunting, fishing, playing cards, car races, and most importantly, his love for his mother and children. Charlie's work history included working in Brainerd, Minn., and for Hight Construction in Minot.
A memorial service will be held Aug. 16 in Carmichael, Calif.
In lieu of flowers, donations are requested for his children's education. Donations may be sent to Connie Amundson, 5241 Winding Way, Apt. 3, Carmichael, CA 95608.
