Obituary for LtCol. Charles Allen Ewing

LtCol Charles Allen Ewing, 81, peacefully passed away in his sleep on Easter morning, April 9, 2023. He was born in Binghamton, New York on June 2, 1941, to Charles Russell Ewing and Dorothy Lucille Smith.

His formative years were spent in Jamestown, New York. He joined the USAF in 1962 where he met the love of his life, Miss Judy Moses, while stationed at Dow Air Force Base in Bangor, Maine. They were married in 1965.

After his tour in Vietnam in 1971, he was transferred to Travis AFB in California to become a C-5 Pilot in the 75th Squadron. He remained there until he retired in 1981.

After retiring from the Air Force, he found another dream job at the local Pacific Hardware Store in downtown Vacaville where he could use his knowledge of building a house from scratch. His trademark mustache was a fixture there for over 20 years.

At home, when Chuck wasn’t flying or fixing elsewhere, he was either tinkering in the garage, tending his roses, riding his Harley, or doing his crossword puzzles.

He leaves behind his loving wife Judy of 58 years, a son, Charles Jr. (Leslie) of Vacaville, a daughter, Katy Cava (Matt) of Salinas, seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. All bright stars in Grampa Chuck’s universe! He also leaves behind two siblings, sister Joan Ewing Nickels (Tom) of Virginia, nephew Doug of Florida, and brother Jim Ewing (Su) of New York. As well as a brother-in-law, Ed Moses of New Hampshire, and numerous cousins that he was still in contact with.

And let’s not forget his extended family either – all the wonderful friends he has made along the way in our various postings with the Air Force and over our 52 years in Vacaville.

He will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.

Please join us for a celebration of his life on June 16, 2023, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Vacaville Veterans Memorial Building at 549 Merchant Street.
