Charles (Chuck) B. Cheney, our loving husband, father, grandfather, 77 passed away on July 18, 2020 due to injuries sustained in a bicycle accident.  Born May 26, 1943 in Prescott, AZ to William Clem Cheney and Eva Day Cheney and later moved to Salt Lake City, UT.

He attended East High School and graduated in 1961 and soon after was called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Montevideo, Uruguay mission.

Chuck graduated from the University of Utah School of Pharmacy in June 1969 and was a pharmacist for over 40 years.

Chuck loved all things related to the University of Utah. He was a long-time season ticket holder for football and basketball. He enjoyed playing pickle ball in recent years and has always enjoyed riding his bike. He loved to travel with his wife and enjoyed traveling all the world.

Over the years, he has found gratification in serving others. He served at the Joseph Smith memorial building, church history museum, and spent several summers in Nauvoo serving at the church history sites.
