Chuck was born in Tama County, Iowa on March 24, 1934 to Herman and Petronilla "Lena" (Nirschl) Yocum. He grew up and went to school in Green Mountain, Iowa until his Junior year. His family relocated to Zearing and Chuck graduated with the Zearing Consolidated High School class of 1952. While roller-skating in Marshalltown he met the love of his life Phyllis Winters. The couple was married on August 20, 1955 at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Marshalltown. They began their married life in Milwaukee, WI where Chuck worked for his uncle learning the construction trade. In 1957, they moved back to Zearing where they raised their family together. Chuck began working for Morris Westmoreland until he started his own construction company. Chuck was a member of St. Gabriel's Catholic Church and Knights of Columbus Marshall Council No. 966. Chuck enjoyed spending time with his family, taking Canadian fishing trips, snow skiing, watching sporting events, hobby farming, reading, and being his grandchildren's number 1 cheerleader. He was also an avid traveler, visiting Europe 3 times, Egypt, and skiing in the Swiss Alps.
Those left to cherish his loving memory are his children Dianne (Randy) Brinkmeyer of Radcliffe, IA, Laurie Yocum (Keith Whipple) of Elkhart, IA, and Mark (Miriam) Yocum, of Johnston, IA; 11 grandchildren Bambi (Mike) Cerka, Keith (Sarah) Olson, Megan (Jon) Jacobson, Jamie (Michael) Bell, Cody (Alysia) Olson, Lee (Michelle) Yocum, Abby (Michael) Moeller, Connor Yocum, Courtney (Jeremy) Oxley, Erin (Nick) Hullermann, and Taylor Olson (Austin Sullivan); 14 great-grandchildren Payton, Grace, Macey, Nellie, Norah, Liam, Lane, Harper, Alexis, Weston, Reece, Quinn, Brooklyn, and Charlotte; brother Lloyd Yocum of Mable, MN; sister-in-law Jan Yocum of Ft.
