On Tuesday, October 27, 2020, Charles “Chuck” Ray Dewell of Great Falls passed away at the age of 75.

Affectionately known as “Dad, Charlie, Poppa Bear,” or “Yogi,” to those closest to him, Chuck (as most others called him) graced the world with his presence on August 13, 1945, in Billings. After attending Laurel High School, he skipped town to proudly serve in the US Army for two decades. Following military retirement, Chuck became a jack of all trades and master of none.

Chuck loved exploring the West Coast, being outdoors, and fishing anywhere and anytime he possibly could. His heart was in Montana, though, so he could routinely be found at The Peak, Giant Springs, Holter Lake, or Glacier National Park. He gave his time by volunteering at the local food bank and offered his knowledge by volunteering as a docent at The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center.
