Charles “Chuck” Baroch died on June 22 in Ohio where he was residing, three days before his 86th birthday. He had been ill since March.

Baroch was born in Denver in 1932, but because his dad was a mining engineer, his childhood was spent in many different places in the West. He graduated high school in Boulder City, Nevada. Baroch earned a bachelor’s degree in metallurgical engineering from the Colorado School of Mines, then continued his education at Iowa State University where he earned his masters and a PhD in chemical engineering.

After he graduated from Iowa State, Baroch joined the Army Corps of Engineers. From 1958 to 1960, he served at the Atomic Energy Commission — a federal agency since succeeded by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Energy Research and Development Administration which is part of the U.S. Department of Energy.

He met his wife Carol in 1955 at a church function on the Iowa State University campus.

“He said he was going to marry me after our first date,” Carol Baroch said.

They married in September 1956.
