Chuck was the middle child of seven children, born July 21, 1937 to Oscar and Anna (Jacobson) Holmstrom of Gwinner and grew up on the family farm north of town. He graduated from Gwinner High School in 1955. He and Carol Larson were married August 19, 1961. Chuck, Carol, and their daughter, Rita made their home in Gwinner.

Chuck was the last of the original Ten Club that was organized to promote Gwinner. Later that membership became Gwinner Community Development Corporation. Chuck was an avid hunter and fisherman. He enjoyed trap shooting, bowling, auction sales, square dancing, golf, and traveling. Chuck and Carol moved to Fargo in August 2013 when his health became a major issue. He was on kidney dialysis for 8 years.
