Charles “Chuck” Raymond Bromley embraced life for 62 years. He passed away in his home in Kings Beach, leaving all who knew him with many cherished memories.

A California native, Chuck was born in Long Beach and raised in the Los Angeles area. He graduated from David Star Jordan High School in 1963. He then served in the Marine Corps Reserves from 1963-1971, from which he received an honorable discharge.

While living in the Los Angeles area between 1967 and 1977, Chuck married his former wife Amy Hembd and became the proud father of two sons, Todd Alan Bromley and Trent Michael Bromley.

Chuck was employed for many years at Douglas Aircraft and Armored Transport Inc.

In 1977, he and his family moved to the Lake Tahoe area, where Chuck found a love for fishing, hunting and nature. Throughout the 30 years he lived at Tahoe, Chuck worked as a flooring contractor, which fostered many lasting friendships.

Most important to Chuck were his connections to those he cared about.

Chuck will be remembered as a man who enjoyed life, an avid storyteller and a proud member of the Potawatomi Tribe.

In recent years he spent his time Jeeping, camping and celebrating his four grandchildren. He appreciated the warm sun, a good book, and a cold beer.

Chuck was preceded in death by his father and mother, James and Eva Bromley.

He is survived by Kathy Williams, his loving partner of 14 years; his older brother James and sister inlaw Becky Bromley; sons Todd and Trent Bromley; daughters in law Kim Bromley and Christina Ramirez-Bromley; grandchildren Madison and Nathan Bromley and Jade and Kai Ramierez-Bromley.

Family and friends will gather to celebrate memories of Charles Raymond Bromley on Dec. 15 at 1 p.m. throughout the afternoon. Contact 530-541-3705 for location and further information.
