Charles "Chuck" A. Theama of Pewaukee died Sunday, Sept. 12, 2010, at Waukesha Memorial Hospital at age 57. He was born Aug. 4, 1953, in North Prairie, the son of Raymond and Marion (nee Volk) Theama.

Chuck was a 1972 graduate of Waukesha South High School. He has been a member of the Evangelical & Reformed United Church of Christ since 1977, where he married the former Laurie Murdock on Oct. 1, 1977. For 32 years, he worked for Johnson Sand and Gravel.
