Chuck was born at Mercy Hospital in Iowa City on Jan. 29, 1943, the son of Leslie and Lucille (Wilcox) Waters. He was the second of six sons. He grew up on the family farm near West Branch, Iowa, and graduated from West Branch High School in the Class of 1961.
On July 8, 1967, he was united in marriage to Corrine Kepler at the United Methodist Church in Lisbon, Iowa. Chuck worked at Procter & Gamble in Iowa City for 30 years where he held various positions. He served in the Iowa National Guard.

He enjoyed his time with his children and grandchildren, feeding the birds, morning coffee with the guys, RVing to Florida for the winter and happy hour with the other snowbirds.
