Charles Anthony (Chuck or Charlie) Orgovan Jr. KF6YKQ

November 12, 1940 to March 24, 2011
 

Born in National City California to Charles A. Orgovan Sr. and Lillian Plum Orgovan

Survived by wife Anna KG6ZOA of Paradise CA; sons Dave Orgovan of Mesa AZ and Dan (Michelle) Orgovan of Federal Way WA and William Sanger of Paradise CA; stepdaughters Yolanda (Tim) Anderson temporarily in Germany and Brenda Sharp (Eric Adair) of Paradise CA. He also leaves a brother Martin (Betty) Orgovan of Long Beach CA.

Charles was active in a number of hobbies; an avid Ham radio operator, rockhound extraordinaire (always with some fancy showpiece in his pocket).. He collected coins, antique tools, outmoded radio gear and anything else that struck his fancy. Just ask, we're sorting it all now.

Charles was active in a number of clubs during his later years including the Golden Empire Amateur Radio Society, Butte County ARES, Yuba Sutter Amateur Radio Club, Yuba Sutter ARES and Paradise Post 7-11 E Clampus Vitus.

He was the boy next door over half a century ago when my parents moved the whole family from Spokane WA to Red Bluff CA. His parents separated and he moved away and we didn't get together again until 2004. Unfortunately, his cancer didn't give us as long as we could have wished.
