Charles Michael Diver, 82, of Cloquet passed away Feb. 24, 2021.
He was born on June 6, 1938 at the Fond du Lac Indian hospital to Charles and Elizabeth (Wood) Diver. He attended Wahpeton and Flandreau Indian schools. In 1959 he married Faye (Graves) Diver, and in 1960 they moved to Cleveland, Ohio through the federal Indian Relocation program. He was determined to work in partnership with his wife to provide a good life and education for their children.
Chuck was proud to be a Teamster, and retired in 1998 from Yellow Freight as a dockworker. After retiring and moving back to Fond du lac, he enjoyed his time with family and many friends. He loved going to Black Bear Casino, where he was luckier than most. He had an epic sense of humor and was known for his kindness.
Chuck was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, Faye; their daughter Cheryl; and grandson Christopher; and 10 of his older siblings.
He is survived by sons, Charles Jr. (Tammy Belt) and Kevin (Carrie Jaksic); daughter Karen (Arne Selnes); grandchildren Rochelle, Aaron, Paul, Charlie, Nicole and Kevin Jr.; great-grandson, Casper; son-in-law Paul Schultz (Tamara); special sister-in-law, Charlene Frymier; and brother Donald Diver.
