Many of us knew Chuck Knuthson, a professional genealogist who was a popular speaker at many conferences, a busy instructor, and a member and leader of several genealogy societies. Sadly, he passed away February 27. You can read my earlier article about Chuck at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2008/03/chuck-knuthson.html.
While many of us knew him for his genealogy expertise and enthusiasm, very few of us knew about his “other life.” I recently learned that Chuck was a retired police captain, a Viet Nam veteran, recipient of a bronze medal of valor by the Placer County Law Enforcement Association, and also a husband and the father of five children.
