Charles Edward Dimmick 78, Crosby, went to be with the LORD Thursday, August 4, 2022 at Essential Health in Fargo.

A memorial service will be 11 a.m., Saturday, August 20, 2022, at Crosby Assembly of God Church, Crosby with Les Anderson officiating.

Charles was born May 27, 1944, in Tempe, Arizona, the son of Almus and Hattie (Hanshaw) Dimmick. He was raised and educated in Tempe, Arizona and graduated from Tempe High School.

Charles enjoyed fishing, camping and antiquing and hunting especially in the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix, Arizona.

Charles married Juanita Burton November 15, 1974, often calling her “the love of his life”. Of that union they had three sons; Travis, Curtis and Austin.

Charles worked for Salt River Project for 40+ years as a zanjero (ditch rider) working rotating shifts for the next 30 years before permanent shifts were incorporated. The last 10 years he worked day shift until he developed health issues which forced him to retire earlier than he wanted. Three years later he and his wife Juanita moved to Crosby where he took up drinking coffee and rolling dice with the local “dice rolling group”.

He is survived by wife Juanita of 47 1/2 years, Crosby; sons, Travis, San Antonio, Texas, and Austin (Taycee), Crosby; three grandsons, Tyler and Trent Dimmick, Rimrock, Arizona; Kaden Dimmick, Crosby; two granddaughters, Addie and Rylee Kirby, Crosby; sister, Frances Gattie, Scottsdale, Arizona, along with many nieces and nephews.
