Chuck was born on March 30, 1947 in Baltimore, MD to the late Charles Leon and Mary Regina Lynch.
Chuck graduated from Lakenheath American High School in RAF Lakenheath, England in 1967, after graduating he enlisted in the U.S. Army. He served 4 years as a Signal Intercept Specialist on active duty with 2 tours in Vietnam before his honorable discharge. He went on to serve 6 more years in the Army Reserves with the 11th Special Forces Group as a Communications Specialist.

Chucks favorite hobby was to collect toy cars. He had a vast collection of over 7,000 and even had a whole room dedicated to his cars, affectionately known as "Pop Pops car room." Chuck never met a stranger and always told long animated stories about any subject you could imagine. He was the most selfless, loving, kind hearted man. He left an impression on anyone he met and you would never forget him. His family was his absolute greatest love, especially his children and grandchildren.
