Join Bridge Winners
Chuck Henke, 1934-2018

Chuck Henke, Grand Life Master, died on March 15 at the age of 83.

A full-time bridge professional during the early years of his life, Chuck won the Blue Ribbon Pairs in 1965, playing with John Moran. Shortly thereafter, Chuck moved to Denver and quit travelling to tournaments except for Colorado and adjacent states, and the occasional NABC. He played both professionally and for the love of the game until a few weeks before his death. He became a Grand Life Master in 2010.

I was a duplicate newbie in 2002 but became friends with Chuck and his wife Pat. Chuck was always willing to explain his thinking, not that I could follow it.

Chuck was also a home chef and a bonzai expert.

Colorado bridge will miss him.
