Charles 'Chuck' Leonard Kaledas

| May 11, 2022 10:15 AM

Charles “Chuck” Leonard Kaledas, 68, passed away peacefully in his apartment. He was born Nov. 18, 1953, in Spokane, Washington, the son of Joseph Kaledas and Virginia Kaledas.

Chuck is survived by his three children Cindy Kaledas, Joseph Kaledas and Nicolas Kaledas; his two sisters Nancy Kaledas and Susann Gwynn; three grandchildren Cameron Martinez, Nicolas Kaledas and Nova Kaledas; and some nieces and nephews. Chuck is predeceased by his mother Virginia Kaledas, father Joseph Kaledas and wife Diana Kaledas.

While maintaining a job, Chuck graduated from Shadle Park High School, Class of 1972. Chuck was so passionate about sports that when he suffered a knee injury in high school, he decided to coach basketball for a year after graduation. Chuck then played softball for Kaiser Aluminum until they took down the fences because he did not want to just get base hits.

Sports was a major part of Chuck’s life. If he wasn’t participating in a game, he was watching one. You would always catch him watching a Raiders football game. In the fall, his primary focus was fantasy football as he played in big money leagues. Aside from sports, Chuck liked to blast music as loud as possible and rock out while drinking a stiff glass of Black Velvet and Coke. He enjoyed being in the sun and barbecuing for his friends and family.

When Chuck moved to Moses Lake from Arizona in 2019, he became a grandpa and enjoyed every minute with his grandchildren. He loved an unannounced visit from them and held a special bond with his grandchild, Nicolas Kaledas.

A service of remembrance will be held 1 p.m. Friday, May 13, 2022, at Kayser’s Chapel & Crematory, 831 S. Pioneer Way, Moses Lake, Washington. There will be a celebration of life held from 4-7 p.m. at the Kaledas residence in Moses Lake, Washington.
