Charles Angevine Hutchinson, Jr., died December 5, 2005 at his home. Chuck was born June 27, 1923, in Boulder, Colorado, the son of Charles and Isabel and older brother to Tom and Jim. Chuck attended the University of Colorado where he received a bachelor degree and two masters degrees in engineering. He served in the United States Navy during World War II in the Atlantic theatre. After the war, he married Rosa Smith in 1947, with whom he had four children, Chuck III, Judi, Susan, and John. Chuck married Maxine Coker in 1974. He is survived by Max, Rosa, his four children and their spouses, Max’s daughter Lisa Biggars and her husband, twelve grandchildren, and four great grandchildren.

After his love for his family, Chuck’s greatest joy in life came from the beauty of the outdoors in his native Colorado and his adopted home of Texas. Whether leading high school buddies up the Boulder Flatirons in the middle of the night, snow skiing down barely groomed slopes in the National Park, water skiing in the Texas hill country, deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico or playing golf at his home in Sugar Creek, Chuck reveled in outdoor life and activity. Together with his father and his brothers, he formed the Rocky Mountain Rescue organization—still in existence today as one of the premier outdoor rescue operations in the country.

Chuck began his career as a petroleum engineer with Atlantic Oil in Dallas, moving into management as manager of international exploration, and district manager of South and East Texas. In 1976, he rose to the top of his profession when he was elected to serve as the President of the international Society of Petroleum Engineers. Chuck later ran his own independent oil exploration company, MC Resources. After retiring from the petroleum business in 1988, he became a successful realtor in Fort Bend County and was named Fort Bend County Realtor of the Year in 1994. Chuck then began his final and probably favorite career, teaching real estate classes to new and continuing realtors. He continued to love teaching until just months before his death.

The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at M.D. Anderson, and particularly the dedicated and kind personnel with the Houston Hospice. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to the Charles A Hutchinson Jr Memorial Fund, c/o University of Colorado Foundation, P.O. Box 1726, Denver, CO 80217.

A gathering of family and friends to celebrate Chuck’s life will be held in the Garden Room at the Sugar Creek Country Club on Sugar Creek Blvd. Friday, December 9, from 1:30 to 4:30.

The Settegast-Kopf Co., Funeral Directors At Sugar Creek, 15015 Southwest Freeway, Sugar Land, Texas 77478. 281-565-5015.
