Chuck was born on August 16, 1932, the son of Charles Sr. & Anna (Andreessen) Juel. Chuck made his home most of his life in Stout, until most recently when he moved to Dike in early 2015. He attended school in Dike, graduating from Dike High School with the class of 1950. After high school, Chuck honorably served his country in the United States Army. On February 14, 1955, Chuck was united in marriage to Minerva Bausman at the First Congregational Church in Parkersburg. Together, the couple welcomed three sons into their family.

He then went into the field of carpentry, where he worked until just very recently, due to health issues.
