Long-time CD shooter & RO, Chuck Ward passed away

Posted By: Zak Smith on July 1, 2021

It is with deep sadness that the Colorado shooting community announces the loss of Chuck Ward.

He passed away of natural causes.

Chuck was always at the core of the Colorado 3-Gun and long-range shooting community, although he preferred to stay out of the limelight. He was a plank holder of the NRA Whittington Sporting Rifle Match and he was involved in every 3-Gun, multi-gun, or LR match the “old crew” had going over the last almost 20 years.

Chuck was in the 101st Airborne in the 1980’s.

Rest in peace buddy.

Fort Logan is very busy and runs strictly on-time. Be parked and ready to proceed (presumably on foot) to the service tent at 10:15. I suggest planning to arrive at Fort Logan closer to 10:00 AM.

The Fort Logan National Cemetery service will run for approximately 20 minutes.

After services are concluded, friends will be gathering at Monaghan’s Grill & Tavern, 3889 S King St, which is across the street from Ft Logan. Please RSVP to zak@thunderbeastarms.com if you will be attending this gathering, so I can have a head count.
