Charles A. "Chuck" Twombly, 78 and a resident of Boxborough passed away peacefully in Concord on Friday October 23, 2020. He was the beloved husband of Nancy (Chute) Mongelli.
Chuck was born on October 3, 1942, a son to the late George B. and Elizabeth (Taylor) Twombly. He was raised in Lexington and Arlington where he graduated from Arlington High School. He went on to further his education at Wentworth Institute of Technology, majoring in Mechanical Engineering. Chuck enjoyed sport shooting and adding to his collection of firearms. A marksman of note, he was known for his great shot. Coupled with his love and knowledge of firearms, Chuck retired from a position in the Lexington Police Dept. where he served as a firearms safety and marksman instructor. A real renaissance man, Chuck could do just about anything. He was a pilot and enjoyed flying. He was knowledgeable about antique cars, especially Corvettes. He enjoyed riding motorcycles and was a local restaurant connoisseur. In 2018, after 20 years of companionship, Chuck married Nancy, his childhood sweetheart and High School prom date. Always one with a funny story, Chuck's dry sense humor will be missed by all who knew him.
