Following a long and courageous battle against cancer, Charles (Chuck) A. Metzler, 86, of Casper, passed away peacefully at home on the evening of Saturday, February 6, 2021.
Chuck was born February 12, 1934 in Tekamah, Nebraska to Art and Mable Metzler. He was the second of their two children.

In 1965 they had their daughter, Yalonda.
Chuck was a father who loved being involved in his children’s extracurricular activities. Weekends were meant to watch Terry in Wee Dragons and later High School sports or running Yalonda around to parades that she twirled baton in.
Chuck and Marge moved to Wyoming in 1994, as both of their children were already living there.
In addition to his family, Chuck loved his pets, yard work, gardening and having a good time.
He had a little piece of heaven that was very near and dear to his heart, where you could find him at everyday with is beloved Haley, his miniature donkey, and Mimi, his pot bellied pig.
