Everett (Chuck) Angell

10/2/1936 — 5/28/2016

Everett “Chuck” Angell was born Oct. 2, 1936, in Rochester, N.H., to Malcolm and Marie Angell. He passed away May 28, 2016, with his family by his side after complication from a fall in Phoenix, Ariz.

As a child, Chuck always had a love for trains, both real and model. If there was a train track near home, he could be found sitting by the tracks waiting for a train to pass. Later in life, he started collecting Lionel model trains and had a very large collection. He belonged to the Lewiston-Clarkston Model Train Club for many years. He also followed NASCAR for many years.

In 1954, Chuck joined the U.S. Army, retiring 21 years later with the rank of Sergeant First Class E7. Chuck had many duties while in the Army, including two years in the Presidential Honor Guard; and two years at the VIP flight squad, where he had the honor to be the Crew Chief of a VH-34 and fly high-ranking officials like the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of the Army. His greatest memory of flying during those times was flying as the Crew Chief with retired President Dwight Eisenhower aboard. During his military career, he also spent two tours in Korea and Vietnam as well as a tour in Germany and Alaska before returning stateside. While in Vietnam, he was awarded the Bronze Star for Valor and earned the Senior Crew Member Flight Wings. After he moved to the area, he worked at Washington State University in the Public Safety Department, retiring from there as Parking Supervisor.

In 1960, he and Renee Snowburger were married. They had five children: Victoria, Scott, Lori, Melody and Nikki. Their marriage later ended in divorce. On Jan. 1, 1976, he and Virginia “Ginny” Whitted were married in Salinas, Calif. After moving from California to the Palouse, they enjoyed many years of camping, fishing, collecting and traveling with their RV. They later settled in Clarkston, and when his health began to fail, Chuck moved to Phoenix to be near his oldest daughter.

Chuck is survived by his children, Victoria (Bob) Wallace of Phoenix, Lori (Mike) Fulmer of Ohio, Nikki Angell (Dean) of California; and Scott of Washington; and stepdaughters Jennifer Whitted and Barbara Harden of Lewiston. Chuck is also survived by six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his beloved wife, Ginny, his daughter, Melody, his granddaughter Angel and his stepson,

Steven Whitted.

A graveside service with full military honors will be conducted for family and friends at 11 a.m. on June 13 at Normal Hill Cemetery. Malcom’s Brower-Wann Funeral home is in charge of arrangements.
