I met Chuck at Hudson's Bay High School in Mr. Bonnell's Spanish class. Chuck's knowledge of sports amazed me. He knew every single detail about every single player and team from high school, to college and all the pro levels. Chuck and I camped out, fished, drank and talked story. Chuck's never give up attitude always inspires me. Chuck never judged was always supportive and was a very good friend. I'll never forget the Xmas Eve Chuck surprised me and called from Waikiki. I will miss Chuck Bergstrom.

Linda, my memories of Chuck at HBHS was someone who was just trying to find his place in life. He certainly did that even though there were many rough roads getting to that right place. He was and still remains a great friend. He would catch me up on the latest news every reunion attended and might have "bent" the truth a bit on occasion; but never "broke" it. That award winning smile and chuckle... will always be missed. God bless, Chuck, and find him that right place now that he's in Your care! Amen!

In our childhood in the neighborhood, Chuck had the unenviable role as the 'little kid" in our group and thus sometimes suffered for it. To his credit, he usually took it with cheerfulness and optimism. I am happy to hear how he grew into a dear brother and friend. I am sorry I didn't get to renew our friendship.

The first guy I actually knew who owned a Corvette! Chuck was one who was ready for anything and often was the hit of the party. We crossed paths in Vancouver over the years after Bay and seeing him was always a great reunion. He will always be a part of my "high school memories".

Chuck was always 'game' for every program we could cook up in South Cliff, Harney, Mac Hi, and Bay. He had a wonderful kindness born of goodwill and respect that he always seemed to exhibit. Great person from a great family. Working next to him at Brookside in the early 60's have given me many fond memories of Chuck.
Rest in Peace. Jim Holland

Chuck will be missed. We had a lot of great times growing up. He was a sports nut and always fun to be around. I wish we had more time to hang out.

Chuck was always a special friend to the Prill family. He and his brother Eric provided many good memories that we will continue to cherish. Chuck always had a unique sense of humor that he used to brighten everyone's mood. He was a dedicated son and brother who never forgot to honor his family and friends. We send our deepest condolences for his loss.

Linda, I am so sorry for the loss of your brother, Chuck. We had a nice chat at the HB class reunion a few years ago. He seemed happy and was having a good time catching up with old friends and acquaintances My thoughts are with you and your family.
