Charles "Chuck" Haukeness Obituary
Charles "Chuck" Haukeness passed away suddenly on Saturday, July 1, 2017, in Idaho Falls, Idaho from a sudden heart attack. Chuck was born to Stanley and Kathleen (Wilson) Haukeness in Durango, Colorado on February 26, 1961. He was predeceased by his beloved wife, Cathy (Disman) on August 16,1998 and his stepson Sean Disman in 1998 . Chuck has been a beloved member of the Southeast Idaho communities of Pocatello and Idaho Falls since 2001, working in both communities in the health care industry. He was a United States Navy veteran, being honorably discharged in 1982.

"Uncle Chuck" is survived by his sisters Kristen Conrad of Gainesville, Florida (niece Claire Conrad and nephew Paul Conrad) and Kit Haukeness of Park City, Utah (nieces Leah, Rebecca, Mara, and Roslyn Selznick), and his brothers David Haukeness of Boulder, Colorado (niece Alec Haukeness), Robert Haukeness of Durango, Colorado (nephews Johan and David Haukeness), and James Haukeness of Cortez, Colorado (nieces Tessa and Amanda Haukeness and nephew Nicholas Haukeness). Chuck is also survived by Cathy's children that he loved as his own, Eric Disman of Woodland Park, Colorado and Christina Majerus of Watertown, New York and their 5 children. Chuck's numerous nieces, nephews, and grandchildren loved him like a father and they were the center of his giving, gentle, kind life, as were his beloved Denver Broncos. Chuck's dear friends are too numerous to name here because as we all know, Chuck knew no stranger.

Chuck's second family were the doctors and staff at Idaho Neurosurgery and Spine in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He relished going to work every day and loved each and every coworker there, especially Drs. Clark Allen and Brandon Kelly, who he loved like brothers.

Chuck will be honored and remembered at a family service in August in Durango, Colorado, but he would have loved to have each and every one of his friends to toast his loving life, "Fair Winds and Following Seas. Rest in Peace, Brother, We have the watch".
