Chuck was born to Carl and Regina (Gauer) Bingert in Richardton, ND, on October 4, 1957, and was raised in Hebron, ND. After high school he attended and graduated from Wahpeton State School of Science. Chuck worked as a service technician at Sears for 27 years. Once the Sears service shop closed, he worked as a custodian at St. Joseph Church and School. After retirement, Chuck worked part time delivering flowers for Robert’s Floral.
On August 23, 1985, Chuck married the love of his life, Jean Kelsch. Chuck was always proud of their three beautiful children. He cherished time with his family and especially enjoyed the limited time he had with his grandchildren. He was always willing to lend a helping hand. Whether it be projects with his sons or spending extra time with his daughter including volunteering with the Special Olympics.
He spent much of the summers enjoying life at his lake cabin on the Heart Butte Reservoir. He enjoyed spending time with his two loyal dogs over the years, Kodiak and Bailey. Chuck was a sports fan. Growing up, he followed in his older brother’s footsteps of cheering for the New York Yankees, Green Bay Packers, and Notre Dame Football.
Chuck will be deeply missed by his wife of 38 years, Jean Bingert; children, Kyle Bingert, Matthew (Samantha) Bingert, and Danielle Bingert; grandchildren, Brynn Vogel, Kason Bingert, and Finan Bingert; sister, Paulette Kraiter; brother, Dan Bingert; mother-in-law, Joan Kelsch; brothers-in-law, Steve (Anne) Kelsch and Tom (Shelley) Kelsch; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Chuck was preceded in death by his parents; father-in-law, Bill Kelsch; brother-in-law, Greg Kraiter; and sisters-in-law, Mary Kelsch and Rae Ann Kelsch.
In lieu of flowers the family prefers memorials to Mandan Special Olympics or Central Dakota Humane Society.
