Charles “Chuck” Bernard Frozina, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 53, at his home in Rosamond
CA, on May 25 th 2021. He will be dearly missed by his family and friends.

Chuck is survived by his wife of 31 years Tori, his 16-year-old son Luke, 14-year-old daughter Mandy,
13-year-old niece Isabel, his parents Patty and Bob Frozina, his brother Rob, his sister-in-law Erlinda, his
many Bertolette/Watkins cousins, and his extended family and friends from Rosamond Little League.
Chuck, also known as “Chuckie and Papa Chuck”, was born in Burbank, CA on April 26 th 1968. He grew
up in Arleta CA where he was a part of the “Crowley Dukes” and met many lifelong friends though
“the block”. He grew up on “the block” across the street and three doors down where he met his future
wife Tori as a young boy. Chuck and his family lived much of his youth playing at Arleta Little League and
took many family vacations with the Frozinas and the Goodes at his favorite camping area in Yosemite
National Park. Chuckie spent many years hanging with his brother “Robbie” and being a little brother
that looked up to his older brother. Chuckie spent many nights of his youth living life to its fullest -
riding dirt bikes, camping, jumping BMX bikes, playing quarters, going to the drive-in movies/concerts,
and hanging with his friends.

Chuck started his love of computers being one of the first kids in the neighborhood to have and to use
an IBM computer and perform DOS programing. He continued his love of computers through his daily
gaming rituals, which drove his wife nuts! He attended Vena Avenue Elementary. He then transferred
to St Genevieve Catholic School for most of his Elementary/Jr. High school years before attending and
graduating from Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, CA. Chuck practiced Catholicism into his
young adulthood and spent many years serving the church as an altar boy. He also spent time attending
Pierce College with a goal to major in Architecture. However, his college life was cut short after being
diagnosed with Type 1 Insulin Dependent Diabetes.

Chuck began a career in the mechanic shop at Forest Lawn Mortuary in Hollywood Hills. He eventually
moved on to work as a Senior Xerox technician, where he worked for 15 years. He was awarded many
President’s Club awards and was rewarded many bonuses and trips. He and Tori enjoyed those trips a
great deal. In 2003, Chuck suffered a traumatic leg injury from riding a dirt bike. This injury led Chuck to
his early retirement from Xerox and onto his final, most rewarding job of all, being a stay-at-home father
to Luke and Mandy as well as becoming a guardian to his niece Isabel. Chuck was also a full- time
volunteer. He coached, managed, umpired, and was a board member for Rosamond Little League for
over 10 years. Chuck also coached every sport in town from baseball, to football, to basketball, and
soccer. He was an all-around family man. From school drop offs to pick ups, to shuffling to practices and
games, Chuck did it. Chuck was the chauffer for school functions, sporting events and anything else the
kids needed. He never missed an event in which his children were performing. Chuck even drove the
“magic bus” once.

If you knew Chuck, you knew he was very Patriotic. He always made sure to thank a Veteran or Military
person by giving them a handshake and saying “Thank You for your service”. He always flew a large
American flag from his motor home. Chuck enjoyed living life to its’ fullest. He was an avid dirt bike
rider and had joined the “View Finders” club. He was in some races and taught his kids the love of
dirtbike riding. He loved camping and spent many vacations in places such as Yosemite, Grand Canyon,
Utah, Trona, and a variety of RV parks. Chuck loved to spend time at Lake Isabella and Lake Diaz where
he rode his jet skis and wave runners. He was a true dare devil. Above all of his interests, Chuck was a

die-hard RAIDER fan. From LA, to Oakland, to Las Vegas, win or lose he still remained an always faithful
fan. He would buy a new RAIDER hat at least every year.
Through all of Chuck’s adventures, he always struggled with being an insulin dependent diabetic.
He took insulin daily for 35 years. Despite the challenges, he was still able to live a very fruitful eventful
life. He woke up everyday knowing the struggle, but still managed to complete the tasks of a father and
a husband.

Chuck’s top priorities were being a father, a husband, and a family man. He taught his children how to
be adventurous and to enjoy: sports, camping, dirt bike riding, and any other high adrenaline activities.
Papa Chuck was regularly active in the community of Rosamond. He really enjoyed all of his years on
the Rosamond Little League Board and met many lifelong friends that he considered family. He was so
happy to get to know the Andersons, the Sanchez Family, the Segale family and many other great friends
along the way. He treated the children in the Community as his own; coaching, mentoring, advising, and
providing a taxi service to many of them. He had a smile and laugh that could light up an event. Many
times was the life of the party. He could hang with the kids in their 20s.

Chuck’s most important job in life was being a husband to Tori and father to Luke and Mandy, and Uncle
Chuck/Father figure to Isabel. He often spoke about the life he and Tori had built for many years. He
spoke about sneaking out of their bedrooms, at the age of 13 & 17 to “be together”; to getting married
at the age of 18 & 22. Every event in his life he was always with Tori. They were both Taurus signs and
could be feisty together, but also loved each other deeply. They completed one another. Chuck was in
love with Tori until the day he left us.

In 2004, when Chuck became a father for the first time he was overjoyed with having a son. Luke was his
“little buddy” and remains the pride of his life. He often umpired with Luke and never missed practice or
a game. He encouraged Luke’s academic endeavors. They also shared the love of the RAIDERS.
In the birth of his daughter, later known as his twin. He was elated to have a sweet little spicy girl
running around. Mandy is Chuck’s spirit clone. She reminds all of us of how Chuck was in his youth.
They had an impeccable bond with one another. Mandy was with Chuck at the end and he would have
been proud of how brave she continues to be and how she handled herself that day.
In 2018, when Isabel permanently entered their life, Chuck became the father figure that Isabel needed.
It was a natural fit for them both and the bond in which they created will never be replaced. He was her
greatest ally.

In closing, Chuck Frozina will be greatly missed by many. We know he is sorry he could not stay around
longer to be with his wife and kids, but he will be watching and cheering them on from afar. Chuck will
always watch with great pride over Luke, Mandy and Isabel, as they are great children and will do great
things in life. See you in the next life, we love you always Dad. Chuck, I miss you so much already and
am grateful to have had such a great life with my soul mate.
