SPECIAL NOTE: Chuck Wiley Athletic Foundation 


Chuck L. Wiley was born November 11, 1970, in Tallahassee, Florida to Ron and Kitty Wiley.  At a very young age, Chuck developed a vast interest in athletics with baseball being his true passion.  Every weekend consisted of playing baseball outside with his identical twin brother, Chad.  No matter where they were, they always had each other to play catch with.  They pushed each other and competed with one another in order to excel throughout their youth.

Chuck’s love for baseball started like many other kids with the love of t-ball, Little League and summer travel teams.  The passion for baseball continued through high school, where he graduated from Owatonna, Minnesota in 1988, and was an All-State pitcher and state champion.  After graduating high school Chuck followed his passion for baseball by attending JCCC in Overland Park, Kansas. After success there, Chuck achieved his boyhood dream and was drafted by the Seattle Mariners Baseball Organization. In 1992, the Peninsula Pilots (A ball team) made history during their home and road openers.  In the first game of the season, Greg Bicknell and Chuck Wiley hurled a combined no-hitter against the Salem Buccaneers.  Chuck’s career with the Seattle Mariners Organization continued for 4 years. 

In addition to his passion for playing baseball, Chuck enjoyed running, working out, golfing, camping, floating, spending time with his family and friends and teasing his nieces and nephews at every given opportunity.  His deepest love was coaching and watching his children participate and compete in sports.

In October 2014, Chuck was diagnosed with lung cancer.  Everyone in Chuck’s life witnessed his strength, resilience, and bravery throughout his fight. Chuck is remembered by his competitive spirit, quick wit, continuous humor and for being a wonderful son, husband, brother, father, and grandfather aka “Dubs.”

         Chuck was always a big giver and had a heart to help people in need at every opportunity he could.  That’s why Angie Wiley, Chuck’s wife, started the Chuck Wiley Athletic Foundation in his memory. Giving back to youth athletes in need is something that Chuck would be proud of.
