Chuck Barat, age 62, died on November 5, 2017 at Elizabeth House. He was surrounded in love by his wife of 39 years Linda Barat and his daughter Sarah Zoe Barat, of Portland, Oregon.

Chuck received his B.S. in Outdoor Recreation and Park Management from Va. Tech in 1978 and embarked upon a 30 year career with the National Park Service. He spent his first 15 years on the east coast and mid west, in positions at Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Delaware Water Gap N.R.A. and Petersburg National Battlefield, among others. The last 15 years of his career were spent in two western parks, Lava Beds National Monument and Carlsbad Caverns National Park. Over his career, he and his family called 9 different states home.

In 2008, Chuck and his wife chose Hendersonville, North Carolina for the next chapter of their lives, enriching them with beautiful places to explore and many good friends. Chuck loved being outdoors, hiking, gardening, playing tennis and travel. He was an excellent cook, an avid tropical fish hobbyist, a lifelong Yankee fan and a devoted husband and father.

Chuck’s Celebration of Life will take place at 4 PM, Thursday, November 16, 2017 at The Summit Room of Burntshirt Vineyards, 2695 Sugarloaf Rd, Hendersonville, NC.
