Obituary for Charles L. Minium

Ninilchik resident, Charles Le Grande Minium, 67, passed away in Soldotna, AK, on June 20, 2019, following complications from surgery.
A celebration of Chuck’s life will be held in Ninilchik late summer 2019.
Chuck was born on June 23, 1951 to Charles and Vera Minium in Longview, Wash. He graduated from Kelso High School in 1969 where he excelled in sports. Chuck made his way to Alaska in 1984 and lived in Wasilla until 1998. He worked as a millwright at the Cominco Mine for many years, as well as oil platforms in the Cook Inlet. In 1998, Chuck moved to Ninilchik and spent many days logging, but his real passion was fishing. He eventually bought his own boat and enjoyed bringing friends, strangers, and anyone willing, out for an adventure on the water. In Ninilchik, Chuck found a community that welcomed him and cared deeply for him. If Chuck was not at the Senior Center for lunch, or the Buzz Café for morning coffee, someone was checking on him. Cousin Rob was instrumental in caring for Chuck and we are forever grateful.
Chuck is survived by his brother, Duke; and sister, Marvel.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Vera.
The family would like to thank Heritage Place staff and caregivers, for their exceptional care and love that was shown to Chuck during the last year.
Arrangements by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai.
