Charles Floyd Carvey
November 8, 1947 ~ January 12, 2024 (age 76) 76 Years Old
Charles Floyd Carvey (Charlie), 76, was a very special man that left us on January 12, 2024.
Charlie was born November 8, 1947, to Levetta Mae Conard and Edward Floyd Carvey (Nick) in Whitefish, Mt. He had two brothers, Edward and Don Carvey and two sisters Alvera McClain and Illa Tallon.
When Charlie was 17 years old, he married the love of his life, Cherril Lynn Stacy, on June 19, 1965. They were married 58 1/2 years. They have four kids Shawna Carvey, twins Jennifer Carvey and Janella Enghusen and Kyle Carvey; seven grandchildren Jacquelyn Riekena (Jason), Skylar Evins (Logan), Ethan Carvey (Hailey), Taylor and Logan Brush, Austyn Pulse (Jessica) and Dillon Bagnell; four and half great grandchildren, Carter Brownlee, Charlie Riekena, Grayson Mills and Tikaani Carvey and baby Mills on the way. He had numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and was friends to everyone he met. He was a family man that was extremely proud of his kids, grandkids and great grandkids. He was happiest spending time with his family in the outdoors, hunting, fishing, picking huckleberries and getting wood.
Charlie moved to Spokane and worked for his father-in-law, Ken Drew, at a fish hatchery until he joined the US Army in 1968. He was sent to Fort Lewis, WA for boot camp then on to Fort Leonard at Wood, MO before being sent to Thailand during the Vietnam Conflict. When he returned state side, Charlie was stationed at Fort Belvoir, VA and taught land navigation at West Point Military Academy. After leaving the military, he worked at a fish hatchery outside of Seeley Lake, MT where they started their family. He lived in Columbia Falls and worked at Louisiana Pacific until moving to Eureka in 1982. Charlie started C&S Logging with partner Doug Stacy. He also made beautiful log furniture with his brothers Ed and Don as Crooked Tree.
There will be a Celebration of Life for Charlie later in the Spring with a potluck fish fry at the back end of Sophie Lake. Arrangements are under the care of Schnackenberg Funeral Home of Eureka, MT.
