He received his Bachelor’s Degree from UW-Oshkosh and worked for the United States Postal Service until retirement. Chuck was a WWII history buff and co-author of a book about the 82nd Airborne. He was very interested in his family lineage and was the go-to guy for questions regarding his German ancestors. He enjoyed traveling and reconnecting with his family in Germany. Chuck was a loving grandfather “Opa” and spent every weekend bowing to the will of his two granddaughters.
