Our beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend left this life unexpectedly on Friday, Sept. 7, 2012. Charles Scott “Chuck” Carpenter was born in Salt Lake City, UT, on Sept. 27, 1963 to Douglas Howard and Mary Anna Woodland Carpenter, the third of seven children.
He was raised in North Ogden, attending Weber County Schools. He graduated from Weber State University in 1987 with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. He taught school in Battle Mountain, NV and Weber County. He later became an agent for Farmers Insurance and worked with them for 20 years. At the time of his death, he was employed by Costco. He had a great love for others and enjoyed serving people in both the insurance and retail fields. He had a great love of teaching and recently recertified so that he could return to the school classroom. He loved sharing his knowledge and talents while tutoring students, the classes he substituted in, his Sunday School class and those many children in the nursery where he served for over 5 years.
Chuck served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the San Bernardino California Mission. He married Michele Doxey in the Logan Temple in 1990, they were later divorced. He and Michele had the honor of hosting several foreign exchange students, Kasia Polack (Poland), Lina Kulidzan (Bosnia), Elena Dwyer (Ukraine), Tobias Spindler (Germany) and Christian Lampe (Germany).
Chuck married Carrie Watt in the Ogden Temple on Dec. 19, 2003. Together they have two beautiful children, Wyatt Scott 7 and Kasha Marie 5.
He and his family enjoyed spending time together making memories. Front Runner, Temple Square, Downata Hot Springs, Yellowstone, Gateway Fountains, the splash pad, camping with family and 4-wheeling in the mountains just to name a few. His presence will be greatly missed as we continue those traditions. We know Chuck’s spirit will be there with us.
