Obituary for Charles D. Dressen

Charles David Dressen passed away Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at his home in South Jordan, Utah with loved ones at his side. He was born December 19, 1953 in Salt Lake City to Ernest Hugo and Virginia Diane Bailey Dressen, the third of four boys.
Charlie was passionate about God, his country and family. At the age of 18 he enlisted and honorably served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. His 32 years of military service included serving in the Utah National Guard, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel. Charlie was also an avid Scouter, an Eagle Scout, serving the youth for over 40 years. His service included Scoutmaster, Woodbadge course director, Vigil Member for the Order of the Arrow, District commissioner and many others. He attended Philmont, the Priesthood Leadership Conference on Scouting and served in the Duty to God area at the 2017 National Jamboree. Charlie was awarded the Silver Beaver for his hard work, self-sacrifice, dedication, and extraordinary impact on the lives of the youth he served.
Charlie was an active member of the LDS church. He married his sweetheart, Ronda Fuller in the Idaho Falls LDS temple. They were blessed with four children. He loved God with all his heart, might, mind, and strength. He honored his priesthood. Like the Savior, he had a special place for children in his heart.
Charlie is survived by his wife Ronda; four children: Alicia, Brian (Brianne), Chandra, and Jameson; two grandchildren: Cooper and Hannah; brothers: Danny (Pat) and Buddy (Wendy), and many brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews. He loved many and in return was loved and respected by countless others. He will truly be missed.
Charlie was preceded in death by his parents, brother Donnie, sister-in-law Diane Thurmond Dressen and brother-in-law Mark Briggs.
We look forward to the day we will be together again.
