Obituary of Charles Rodney Lott

Charles Rodney Lott, 81, died March 13, 2019, at Mercy San Juan General Hospital in Carmichael, California. Chuck was born in Galesburg, Illinois, to the late Horace Jean Lott and Gertrude May Lott (née Stone) and grew up with his younger brother, Robert. After graduating in 1959 from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, Chuck met Mary Anne (née Marren) in Rochester, Minnesota. They married in Rochester, and they welcomed daughter Lara in 1966 in Davenport, Iowa. After living and working in Illinois and Ohio, the family moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1971, and then relocated to Citrus Heights, California, in 1982, when Chuck began working with Consolidated Freightways. He retired in 2000 after 35 years in the trucking industry. Never one to be idle, Chuck began working as an usher at Arco Arena in 2000 and later moved to Golden 1 Center in 2016, where he fast became friends with anyone and everyone. He loved the community and all of the opportunities to see concerts and his beloved Kings. He was also a customer service volunteer at the Sacramento Airport. Chuck was clear-eyed and resilient, smart and outspoken, positive and welcoming, and downright fun to be around. He always appreciated a good joke, he loved to travel with his wife, and he was crazy about the Kings, his many friends and co-workers, and his family, especially his grandchildren. Chuck is survived by his wife, Mary Anne Lott; daughter, Lara Baker, and her husband, Tod Baker, and two grandchildren, Audrey and Sam, all of Castle Rock, Colorado; brother, Robert Lott, and his wife, Chris Lott, of Rock Island, Illinois, nephew Brandon Lott of Peoria, Illinois, and nieces Erin Lott Pollack of Richmond, California, and Kirsten Lott of Galesburg, Illinois, as well as five grand-nieces and nephews; and cousin Jimmy Carter of Destin, Florida. He was loved by many and will be remembered fondly by all who knew him. A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, June 8.
