He was born July 18, 1934 in Downers Grove, Illinois to Charles Kingsley and Bernice "Bunny" (Zelms) McCann. Chuck grew up in Downers Grove, graduating from Downers Grove High School in 1952. He graduated from the University of Michigan in 1956. He met the "Love of His Life" at the University of Michigan, Sally Ann Trowbridge.

He was active in many charities, but his biggest success was chairing the board of directors for the Humane Society of South Central Michigan.
