Charles Raymond Farley “Chuck”, left this world unexpectedly on March 12, 2021.
Chuck was born in Billings, Montana, January 22, 1965 to Alvin Leon and Ellyn Dee Farley(Black), and was the oldest of four children. In 1967 the family moved to Tacoma, Washington. Chuck lived and grew up in various cities in Washington until the family relocated to Douglas, Wyoming, in 1980. Chuck attended High School in Douglas and resided there until he moved to Casper for work in 1986. That began his lifetime of working in the oil field.
Over the years Chuck held many jobs in the industry. Working for Updike, Miracle Painting, and later Crown(Stewart and Stevenson) for almost 15 years were among the jobs he was most proud of. Chuck was well known in the oil field for his work ethic and made many friends over the years. In later years Chuck worked as a Maintenance Supervisor at The Hat Six Travel Plaza. He enjoyed the many friendships he made there.
Chuck was married in 1988 to Sharon Malcolm and they had three sons. He had two children previously, a son and daughter.
Chuck loved the outdoors and over the years was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved spending time with family by a lake or river and there isn’t anyone close to Chuck that doesn’t have a fishing story to tell. He also loved getting together with family and throwing something on the BBQ. All through his life he especially enjoyed working on rigs, mechanicing, and painting, and passed on his knowledge to his Brothers and Sons. He was proud of his Children and Grandchildren.
Chuck is preceded in death by his Father, Mother, and baby granddaughter Kyleigh who he is now holding in his arms. He is survived by his Uncle Jerry Farley of Casper, his siblings Kimberley Farley of Billings, Montana, Brian Farley of Casper, and Alan Farley of Casper, his children, Jeremy Parks(Tiffany) of Whitman, Nebraska, Courtney Ford of Casper, Kyle Farley(Jamie) of Boise, Idaho, Jordan Farley of Casper, and Preston Farley(Karlee) of Casper, twelve grandchildren, numerous cousins and nieces and nephews.
Chuck was incredibly loved and will be greatly missed by his entire family and many friends, but we know he is sitting by a lake somewhere,,,,,,,until we meet again!!!
