Charles Crowley

WAUNAKEE--Charles E. Crowley, age 81, passed away on Tuesday, April 28, 2020 at

Waunakee Manor in Waunakee. He was born on August 22, 1938 in Darlington, WI, to James

and Hazel (Weston) Crowley. He married Barbara (Graczykowski) in 1966.

As a boy, Chuck grew up on a farm; as a young man joined the Navy, serving for four

years. Following that, Chuck worked as an aide and driver at Mendota Mental Health Institute

for his entire employment career, an impressive 35 years, until retirement in 1996. He spent

some of his retirement years working at Copps on Aberg Ave. Chuck loved watching the

Packers, Badgers, and Brewers, gardening, spending time with others at the local tavern, and,

as a younger man, deer hunting and fishing.

Chuck is survived by his wife, Barbara; daughter, Michele; son, Douglas (Angela);

grandson, Duncan; granddaughter, Quinn; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in

death by his parents and his sister, Mary Ellen.

Interment will be held for close family at a later date. Chuck’s family would like to thank

staff at the Waunakee Manor, as well as Agrace Hospice-Care for the kind, caring, and

compassionate care they gave him. In addition, special thanks to the many nurses and

physicians that cared for him in recent years.
