View Phone Number

Charles was born in Illinois, and grew up in Colorado where he received his PhD in mathematics from the University of Colorado at Boulder. He enjoyed teaching mathematics at Regis University immensely and co-authored several celebrated textbooks with his wife, Corrinne. He loved the outdoors, whether hiking, fishing, climbing, or hunting. He is survived by his wife Corrinne Brase, his sister Viola Haertling, and many loving nieces and nephews. Charles was a man of great intellectual and spiritual depths whose activities and interests spanned an intimidating breadth of topics. Because education and philanthropy were such important parts of his life, we especially appreciate memorial donations to Regis University, The University of Colorado, and other institutions or charities of your choice. Charles' funeral service will be held at Sacred Heart of Jesus Church on Wednesday, May 10th at 10:00 am. Arrangements under the direction of Crist Mortuary, Boulder, CO.
