C. MATLOCK 1926~2007

Our beloved husband, father, brother, grandpa, and great-grandpa, Charles (Chuck) L. Matlock, age 80, passed away July 3, 2007, at Ashley Valley Medical Center after a courageous battle with cancer while surrounded by family.

He was born August 10, 1926 in McCroy, Arkansas, to Maggie and Edward Marvin Matlock. After the divorce from his first wife he became father and mother raising his loving children alone. His family was the most important part of his life. He worked hard in several different professions creating a wonderful life for his children.

Work took Chuck to several areas, one of which was the Union Ice Plant in Van Nuys, Calif., where he worked for 17 years. At the ice plant he would take his children on deliveries which allowed them to meet several movie stars and witness productions in Hollywood, Calif. The opening of the Pennzoil refinery in 1974 brought Chuck and his children to the Uintah basin. He retired from the refinery in 1996.

His hobbies included ATV and motorcycle riding, gardening, fishing, hunting, camping, playing his guitar, and watching the Utah Jazz, but Chuck's most important hobby was the countless hours spent telling stories of his childhood and spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife Linda; children: Taylor (Steve). Auburn, Calif.; Terrel, Meeker, Colo.; Larry (Celia), Reno, Nev.; Dennis (Debbie), Qunlan, Tex.; Mark (Ruth) Wash.; Darrin, Auburn Calif.; Christa (Denile), Vernal, Utah; Tami, Sandy, Utah; sisters: Netti (Harold) Portageville, Mo.; Constant, Ark. and 20 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his mother and father, brothers John, Ernest, and Roy, and two sisters, Mittie and Mirtle.

Graveside services were held at the Vernal Memorial Park, Saturday, July 7, 2007 at 11 a.m. The viewing was an hour prior to services, under the direction of Thomson-Blackburn Vernal Mortuary.
