Charles P McPhie

On March 2, 2024, Chuck (81) rode off into the sunset to join his parents, daughter, brothers, and friends. Chuck was born in Heber, Utah on September, 30 1942 to Leslie and Maud McPhie. He attended Wasatch High School where he was an All-State baseball player. Chuck had a beautiful voice and loved picking on his guitar and playing the accordion. He loved camping, riding his horse Roany, fishing, trap shooting, and snowmobiling. He loved being at the McPhie camp, working on his snowmobiles, trucks, jeeps, chain saws, and anything else someone needed help fixing.

            He joined the US Navy at the age of 17 (1960-1963). He married Larna Briggs July 16, 1965 where they made their home in Center Creek. He worked in the mine and later went to work for USX and Geneva Steel for 32 years, and then the Forest Department, which he loved dearly. He had two children — Michelle McPhie and Justin McPhie (Karena), three grandchildren — Brandee Shiner (Rhett), Kayden Kennedy (Brooke), and Dalan Duncan (Hadly), and 8 great-grandchildren — Clay Wade, Mckoy Sessions, Kymber Kennedy, Wesson Kennedy, Kam Kennedy, Milly Kennedy, Tuff Shiner, and Kylee Shiner, who he loved very much.

            He fought a battle with cancer for many years and it finally won the battle. Chuck’s wishes were for no service; there will be a celebration of life and military honors this summer high in the mountains where he loved to be.

    To the kind, big hearted, hardworking man that got my Yamaha dirt bike running again when I was just 13 years old…over 40 years ago!
