Rick Charns Memorial Find: Remembering Rick Charns with Gilbert Little League Fund


It is with great sadness that we share the news of Rick Charns passing away unexpectedly on Monday, March 11th. Rick was first and foremost a loving father and husband to his nine-year-old son Nathan and his wife Lyn. You would be hard-pressed to find a picture of Rick without his family by his side. He often shared sweet family moments with friends at work, most recently texting “Proud Papa” to a colleague when Nathan hit a homerun at his spring baseball season opener.  Everyone who knew Rick here at work over his 17-year tenure knew that he was passionate about his projects, his customers, and supporting his team. Rick was instrumental in the success of the US DUV UIR team. He helped drive the team to meet seven out of seven upgrades to meet KPIs in the second half of 2023, a significant turn-around in their success.  In the past week alone, he told colleagues how proud he was of the team for beating the install cycle time commitment on their first NXT:1470 install, an achievement that resulted in an email recognition from the customer. A sentiment shared by many, one colleague put it into words well saying, “I always admired Rick’s dedication to his projects and to his project personnel. He was relentless in meeting his customer goals and ensuring that his people were properly supported throughout projects. His dedication to his family was beautiful to witness as well. He constantly spoke of his adoration for his wife and his aspirations for his young son.” He will be greatly missed by his family and so many at ASML. Anyone who knew Rick, knew how much he loved to watch his son play baseball. Rick's family is requesting donations to the Gilbert Little League in lieu of flowers.
