Charles “Chuck” Felix Scheving, 84

Charles “Chuck” Felix Scheving, 84, East Grand Forks, MN, passed away with his family by his side on Sunday, August 27, 2017, at Altru Hospital.

Chuck was born April 7, 1933 in Grand Forks, ND, to John Scheving and Mary Crossen. Chuck graduated from Sacred Heart High School in 1950. He attended Dunwoody School in Minneapolis, MN for drafting. Chuck was later drafted into the United States Army and was drafted during the Korea war. When he returned home, Chuck married the love of his life, Lotus Catherine Boushey on January 21, 1956. Chuck and Lotus lived in East Grand Forks where they raised their five sons and one daughter.

Chuck was an entrepreneur owning and running several businesses with his brother Johnnie, including Brownie Cleaners, Northstar Terrace mobile home park, and Sammy’s Enterprise. Chuck’s last venture was selling lake property for his realty company, Charles Scheving Realty.

Chuck and Lotus moved to Maple Lake in Mentor, MN, which was Chuck’s favorite place. Chuck enjoyed spending countless hours outdoors golfing, tinkering in his work shop, and playing cards with family and friends. Later, Chuck and Lotus split their time between Maple Lake during the summer and Mesa, AZ during the winter. They had many friends in Mesa, AZ where they spent most of their time golfing, helping the local community by collecting toys for children, and enjoying the company that came to visit them.

In 2015, Chuck and Lotus moved back to East Grand Forks to a home built by their son. Chuck spent many of his Fridays delivering Meals-on-Wheels to those in the community. Chuck truly enjoyed his grandchildren and great grandchildren, often calling them “Ollie” and “Tiger”.
