Charles Seabury Link

Charles S. (Chuck) Link, Boise, Idaho, was born on August 27, 1938 in Albion, Nebraska to Raymond F. Link and Barbara Seabury Link.  He spent his childhood in Nebraska, his freshman year in Pullman, WA, before graduating from Caldwell High School in 1956.  He attended Boise Junior College and the University of Idaho, graduating from the U of I in 1960 with a degree in Civil Engineering.

He married Nelda Tuttle in 1964 and they were the proud parents of 3 sons, Todd, Tony, and Matt.  Chuck and Nelda later divorced and he married Francie Yates Trail in 1987.

Chuck worked as a Safety Engineer for various insurance companies, retiring in 2000.

He is survived by his wife Francie, his sons Todd (Teresa Crosswhite), Tony (Kelley),  Matt (Diana),  5 beloved grandchildren Josie, Sofie, Nadia, Chloe, and Ben, his sister Kathie Link Olson of Redmond, OR, his brother Greg Link (Sally) of San Antonio, TX, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister Pamela Link Binder, and his brother-in-law Ron Olson.

Per his request there will be no service.  His last wish was for people to “Just Be Kind.”

    Uncle chuck has always been the kindest, sweetest man. Each year he’d share his bounty from the garden with us; zucchini, cucumber, tomatoes…and loved to talk about it. He’d give us grape jelly, because he knew Marshall loved it so much. He pushed the kids on the horse tire swing he made for his grandkids. He made peppermint ice cream for our kids when he knew we were coming and was always interested in how they were doing in school, with playing music and whether Aidan won his soccer game or Lily finished first in her track race. I always knew how much he loved us all just seeing the smile on his face when we would show up at the door. We will miss you dearly Uncle Chuck.

    My father-in-law was so incredibly generous and loving to Sofie and her family. He spent many a day playing dolls on the floor with Sofie. He took Ben on many an excursion. He loved hard and was stubborn as hell unless it came to his family. And then his heart could melt like no other. I will cherish our memories of you my dear, sweet father-in-law. You meant the world to me. ❤️ You are forever in our hearts.
