Charlie was a kind and gentle person, who enjoyed life and his family. He worked hard his whole life to take care of his family. He shared his love, his support, and his way of looking at life always with a smile and laughter.

After retiring his passion was golf. He would often be up first thing in the morning and at the golf course.

He also enjoyed traveling with Romelle. Their trips built a special bond and memories for just the two of them.

He had many long friendships and made friends everywhere he went. He enjoyed sharing in conversations with others, sharing a joke, and a simple way of life. If he brought a smile and laughter to someone, that made his day.

We will all miss him.

The Schramka-Densow Funeral Home, 423 N. Main St., Thiensville (WI 53092), 242-3120, assisted the family.
