Chuck Knox, 57, of Sunriver, passed away on July 20, 2012, of complications from Parkinson's disease.
He was born to Charles V. and Crystal (Wayland) Knox in Colfax, Washington, on July 12, 1955. Chuck was a 1973 graduate from Dallas High School in Dallas, Oregon, and furthered his education at Mt. Hood Community College where he graduated in 1976, with an associate degree in architectural design.

Chuck had worked for many years at SunForest Construction in the remodel division in Bend, Oregon, as a drywaller, finish carpenter, and architectural draftsman.
He enjoyed volunteering as a little league coach while his sons were growing up, encouraging young lives and good sportsmanship. Chuck was most happy when out on the golf course, fishing for salmon, boating, crabbing, and spending time with family and friends.
