Charles Gullett Jr. Obituary

Born Charles Chester Gullett Jr. in Union City, Indiana in 1948 to Adamae Livengood and Charles Gullett Sr., Charly is survived by his brother Ed Gullett, daughter Sadie Gullett-Olsen, and grandson Otto Olsen.  

A cowboy at heart all his life, Charly moved to Arizona as soon as he could and lived there happily for several decades before moving to New Jersey to be near family his final year. 

Though originally trained as a photojournalist in the U.S. Army Defense Information School he spent much of his adult life as an applications engineer specializing in microprocessor-based robotics, digital instrumentation, and analog design.  While with Intel Corp. as a senior technical author, he was awarded their highest individual achievement award for ground-breaking work in Artificial Intelligence.

His career also included work as a carpenter, college professor, music instructor, small business owner, author, and a professional artist who illustrated over thirty books.  Additionally, he was also a talented woodworker and the creator of the world’s first wooden Resophonic fiddle.  

Music, hiking, and preserving history were all incredibly important to him, however it was his published research into, and recovery of (he preferred the term to ‘discovery’), the fractal geometry used in ancient architecture at Chaco Canyon that made him proudest.  

He was a unique and complicated man, as anyone that has ever met him can attest to and will be deeply missed.  

All services will be private.
