Charles Leo "Chuck" Shrader, 83, passed away on Saturday, May 15, 2010 at Bickford Cottage in Urbandale.

In agreement with Chuck's wishes, cremation rites have been accorded. There will be no visitation. A memorial mass will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, May 17, at St. Pius X Catholic Church. Private committal services will take place at a later date.

Chuck was born in Melrose and lived in the Des Moines area for over forty years. He served in the US Army during the Korean War. Chuck co-owned and operated Roberts Dairy for a number of years.

Chuck was a passionate person who made friends with everyone he met and would do anything for those he cared about. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather and spent much of his time with his family traveling to horse shows around the country, watching his granddaughter Mercedes ride was the joy of his life.

Chuck was preceded in death by his wife Phyllis. He is survived by his daughter, Cynde (Dan) Pezzetti of Clive; sister, Mary Shrader of Ottumwa; granddaughter, Mercedes Van Dorn of West Des Moines; and second granddaughter, Melissa Marcovis.

Chuck has left a void in the lives of those that loved him that will not be filled. We love you Chuck, rest in peace!
