Charles 'Chuck' W. Dickerson


A celebration of life is March 8 in Minden for longtime Carson Valley businessman Charles "Chuck" W. Dickerson, who died Jan. 13, 2008, from heart failure.

Mr. Dickerson was born Nov. 9, 1943, at Randolph Air Force Base, San Antonio, to Edwin and Melitta Dickerson. After graduating from high school, he attended the University of Texas, where he studied aeronautical engineering. He then attended Ambassador College in Pasadena, Calif. There he met his wife, Terri Dickerson. Mr. Dickerson was a minister for 11 years. Upon leaving the ministry, he became a real estate agent in conjunction with developing his own aircraft maintenance business, Air Sierra Unlimited at Minden-Tahoe Airport. His passion was airplanes. He was a multi-engine rated pilot and loved to fly. His company sponsored Formula One airplanes at the Reno Air Races.

Mr. Dickerson knew Carson Valley was where he wanted to raise a family. He and his family loved the camping, hiking, fishing and boating the Valley had to offer. He enjoyed the small-town atmosphere. He was a founding member of the Carson Valley Sertoma Club and was generous with his time.

Mr. Dickerson was preceded in death by a brother, Richard.

He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Terri; three children, JoLynn Reddon and husband Mark of Las Vegas, Chris Dickerson and wife Alicia of Gardnerville, Kelly Lamoreaux and husband Jarom of Monument, Colo.; a brother, John; and seven grandchildren, whom he loved dearly.

One of my room mates in Manor Del Mar my freshman year at AC and very possibly the reason I stayed .  Chocolate Chip Chuck was just a caring wonderful human being.  He will never be forgotten by all whose lives he touched.  See you in the resurrection buddy!!!  Jim Perkins
