Charles W. Tucker, age 90 of Westfield, passed away at home with his loving wife by his side at their cherished home on Lawrence Lake on Wednesday, February 19, 2014. Charles was born in Iowa Park, Texas on August 18, 1923 to Ida Mae (Denny) & Charles Tucker Sr.
After serving in the U.S. Air Force, Charles settled in Madison, WI where he met the love of his life, & future wife, Loretta. Charles worked for First National Bank (now US Bank), interrupted for a short term of employment with Schappe Pontiac. He retired from the bank in 1984 to their home on the lake in Westfield in 1984.
Charles is survived by his wife of 51 years, Loretta; daughter, Deah (Todd) Mulhern, Waunakee; son, Denny (Jennie) Tucker, Westfield and very special twin granddaughters, Maggie & Kelsea (Brandon Peck) Mulhern; brothers & sisters-in-law, Gail & Jim Kapellen, Gary & Judy Cudworth; cousin, Louie McCarthy; other relatives and friends, including many grand-dogs.

Charlie’s greatest joys were his life on Lawrence Lake, fishing, snowmobiling, playing cards with friends & family, his dogs, taking a trip or two to Nevada every year & most importantly, his family. The last 2 years presented a number of health challenges, and with the care & support of his family, Charlie was able to spend his final years at home, which is where he truly wanted to be.
