Charles S. Iddings was born on August 17, 1934 in Danbury, IA to Charles L. and Audrey (Livermore) Iddings. He married Rosemary E. Henrich. He served in the US Army. He was an accountant as his profession. He was employed by the same company for 42 years as it changed from Wilson’s Trucking to All American and finally American Freight. He finished his career at Risk Administration Services and retired to his home on Lake Brant, Chester. Chuck enjoyed wood working as a hobby and built many things, including small items like candle holders, wine bottle holders, coaters and trivets. He built furniture including hutches, tv stands, hall trees and computer desks. He was asked to build a reliquary to hold saint’s relics which is housed in the altar of the remodeled St. Joseph Cathedral in Sioux Falls. His woodworking did not stop there. Chuck built the home at Brant Lake where the family has shared years of happy memories. Chuck was also an avid gardener. He grew most of the standard vegetables, but also tried other things like the year he grew peanuts. He like to be busy!
