Charles Arthur Dorn, age 59, passed away on February 28, 2014. He was born May 18, 1954 in Alhambra, California and is the only son of Charles Alfred William Dorn and Patricia Ann (Icenogle) Dorn. He was a graduate of Northview High School, and spent most of his life living in Covina, California.

Chuck married Paula Sue Ecret on February 9, 1985. He has 5 children, Charles Andrew Dorn, Amie Helene (Matthew) Storman, Benjamin Anthony Dorn, Adam John Dorn, Patrick Allen Dorn; three grandchildren (his monkey's) Mackenzie Rose, Dominic Oscar and Emily Marie Storman.

Chuck served 4 years in the United States Air Force where he was an avionics technician, as well as 2 years in the Air National Guard. After that time Chuck spent his life building a successful career in the Aerospace manufacturing industry, where he could utilize his skills to "make chips". He was a source of encouragement for the many employees he supervised over the years, and had a genuine appreciation for them.

His hobbies included working on cars, with a special fondness for Chevy's. He owned and restored many cars, trucks and motorcycles over the years. Chuck was capable of doing anything mechanical, enjoyed classical music, golf, fishing, dirt bike riding, nature, and he had a unique bond with all animals. He was gifted with many talents and interests. A lighter side was expressed with his collection of Pez, sock monkeys, and his often anticipated (and requested) rendition of the Chicken Dance.

He is survived by his parents, his wife, his children and his sisters: Peggy Sue (Glen) Filger, Vickie Lynne Warren, Michele Renee Dorn, and their families. He is also survived by Barbie Breeden, Erin Riley and Riska Applegate, who were a part of the family to him, in his heart. His pets Tiger, Grey, Orsen, P.J., Kuki, Arthur and Biscuit will miss their daily morning snack time with him and all of his love.

Services will be held at Oakdale Mortuary in Glendora, California as follows:
Wednesday, March 5th, visitation from 5:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Thursday, March 6th, visitation from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Funeral Service from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you consider a donation to the World Parrot Trust (Parrots.org) or your local animal shelter.

Chuck will be missed, remembered, and emulated by many as he is our son, husband, brother, Dad, Grandpa, Uncle, boss and most of all, friend. Words cannot express how very much we will miss having him here with us, and how grateful we are for everything he added to each of our lives.
