Charles Frederick Karl was called home to Heaven on November 6, 2019.

Charles “Chuck” Karl was born on March 16, 1922 to Peter A. and Margaret A.
Karl in Austin, Michigan.

On June 23, 1951, Chuck married the love of his life, Marguerite “Theresa”
McKillop at St Stephen’s Church in Port Huron, Michigan. Together they raised a
family and enjoyed 65 years of marriage together. He was a kind husband and
father who loved to spend time with his family.

Chuck served in the United States Navy during WWII aboard the USS
George F. Elliott (AP105) and the USS Cetus K77. On the USS George F. Elliott
Chuck earned four battle stars for World War II service, the Presidential Citation,
and a Second-Class Carpenter rating. Chuck used his naval skills throughout his
life to build two homes for his family, and to help family and friends with many
projects. At age 89 he was still hanging and taping drywall, gardening, and doing
repair work.

Chuck was employed at Mueller Brass in the Marysville plant for many
years as a laborer and was often called upon to fix machinery. He retired in 1987.
In retirement, Chuck most enjoyed spending time with his family. He liked
to hunt for bargains, gifts, and dapper clothing at JC Penney.

Charles is survived by a son, Brian M. Karl (Diane “Annie”), and daughters,
Deborah A. Biernot (Edward T.) and Janet M. Wood, grandsons, Nicholas R.
Burgess (Aleisha), Brian M. Karl II (Ashley), granddaughter, Brittny C. Brennan
(Nicholas), great grandson, Blake R. Burgess and great granddaughter, Izabella A.
Burgess. In addition, many dear nieces and nephews.

Charles was preceded in death by his wife, Theresa, his grandsons, Jason A.
Schneider and Jeffery M. Karl, his parents, his brothers, Stanley, Harold, Allen,
Leo, Emery and sisters, Agnes, and Mary. In addition, many dear sister and
brother in-laws, nephews and nieces.
