Charles “Chuck” H. Augustine, 66, died Saturday, November 23, 2019 doing what he loved, being outdoors and hunting.
He was born February 1, 1953 in Wausau, son of Eleanor (Boruch) Augustine and the late Victor Augustine. On November 2, 1974 he married Jan Fermanich at St. Michael Catholic Church, Wausau. She survives.
Chuck graduated in 1971 from Wausau West High School. In the years that followed he was involved with the Rib Mountain Lions Club, coached little league and served on the board for the Marathon County Youth Hockey program. Prior to retirement most of his working career was spent at Mid-Wisconsin Beverage. Chuck was a great man, but an even better husband. As a father he was extremely proud of his children and their accomplishments. His grandchildren were deeply embedded in his heart and he loved spending time with them and teaching them new things. Chuck could also fix anything and enjoyed his projects.
One of Chuck’s favorite past times was spending time at the hunting shack with his buddies. He embraced technology and really enjoyed having the latest electronic devices. He was also an avid Milwaukee Brewers and Green Bay Packers fan. Chuck will be remembered as a generous, patient, kind and gentle person whose family and friends were most important to him.
