" Charlie was a loving husband, father, and grandfather who will be missed dearly by his family and friends.
His warm smile and quick wit brought joy
to all who knew him."
Charlie was born in Kyje, Czechoslovakia. As a young man, he immigrated to Germany and enlisted in the U.S. Army, to which he dedicated 21 years of his life. During that time, he met his wife, Lieselotte and raised his family.
In 1979, after retiring from the Army, they moved to Vancouver, WA. He taught meat-cutting at Clark College for 27 years.
Charlie is survived by his daughter, Helen Hyde (Keith); grandson, Donald Hyde (Angi); and granddaughter, Laycee Hyde.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Lieselotte; and his son, Bernard.
Interment will be at Willamette National Cemetery on a date yet to be decided. Announcement will follow.
