Charles D. (Chuck) Stoffel SAN MARCOS -- Chuck Stoffel 43 passed away on Wednesday December 30 2009. He was born on May 30 1966 and grew up in Carlsbad. Chuck made a lasting impression on everyone he met and was everyone's best friend. His constant smile and laughter were certainly contagious. Most knew him to be cocky and arrogant but he possessed a heart of gold and was extremely generous. He was always willing to lend a hand and would do whatever he could to help someone in need.
He was a very patriotic man and extremely proud of his oldest son Scott who is currently serving in the U.S. Air Force as a member of an Explosive Ordnance Disposal team (EOD).

Just as in his personal life Chuck was a success in his professional life. He began his career with the County of San Diego 24 years ago and quickly rose through the ranks to become an Assistant Superintendent Department of Public Works Road Division. He was well on his way to becoming a Superintendent which was his life-long career goal. Chuck was also looking forward to the possibility of his son Cory following in his footsteps into Public Works or Scott's footsteps into the military. Chuck enjoyed many sports throughout his life. At a young age he was an accomplished BMX rider bringing home many trophies. From there he moved into Motocross racing at the Carlsbad Raceway. Throughout his adult life he played on several softball teams in North County. His latest passion was "jeeping." He enjoyed off-roading in the desert at Ocotillo Wells and Truck Haven. He also rode the trails in Rubicon Lake Tahoe and Moab Utah. Chuck would boldly lead his friends and family through the tight trails and was always planning his next adventure.

Chuck is survived by his sons Scott Stoffel and Cory Terrill; daughters Kylie Terrill and Amanda Stoffel; and his long time love Shantay Terrill. He is also survived by his parents Tom and Charley Ann Stoffel; brother Tommy Lee; sister Dede Deatrick and her husband Dave Julie Brooks and her husband Karl Janey Yates and her husband Patrick; sister-in-law Susan McMillen; his best friend and brother Curtis Wleklinski; as well as countless nephews nieces aunts uncles cousins and many dear friends. In lieu of flowers and in loving support of his children, donations can be made to the Charles D. Stoffel Memorial Fund at San Diego County Credit Union.
