Charles “Chuck” Thomas Abbott

August 31, 1954 — October 25, 2022

Earl Park, Indiana

Charles “Chuck” Thomas Abbott, 68, of Earl Park, Indiana, passed away on October 25, 2022, at Indiana University Arnett Hospital, Lafayette, Indiana, after a short illness. He was born August 31, 1954, to the late Hettie Bailey Abbott and William “Bill” Abbott. Chuck was a graduate of North Newton High School, class of 1973.

Chuck was a music enthusiast and once formed a band called “EZ Access,” through which he met many of his close friends. He worked for a number of years as a long-haul trucker, and then as a mechanic at Fairfield Contractors in Lafayette, Indiana. Chuck could fix nearly anything. He enjoyed rescuing and spoiling his beloved dogs, most recently “Mr. B,” and working on his home. Those who knew him well appreciated his mischievous, if sometimes gruff, nature. Above all, he was loved by many – the mark of a life well lived.

Chuck is survived by his sister, Lois Johnson of Rensselaer, Indiana; his brother, Douglas Hiestand of Snohomish, Washington; his niece, Melissa Abraham; his nephew, Roger Abraham, as well as other nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends who love him dearly. He was preceded in death by his mother, father, and one brother, Bernard Hiestand.
