Charles F. “Charlie” Flemming

Charles F. “Charlie” Flemming, age 63, of Chilton, died on Wednesday, October 22, 2014 at Roads to Freedom in Brillion. He was born September 24, 1951 in Fond du Lac, son of the late Glenroy & Patricia (Morris) Flemming. Charlie’s parents were instrumental in the formation of the New Hope Center in Chilton, and he began working there from the moment of it’s inception. Charlie was a member of Good Shepherd Catholic Church who cherished his faith and celebrated the good works of God in his life. He was the prayer leader for his family, always offering the table prayer before family gatherings. In his younger years, he participated in the Special Olympics, and throughout his life he admired heavy equipment like bulldozers and earth-movers found at construction sites. He was an avid Beatles, Brewers, Badgers and Packer fan, but he especially loved trains. He would go out of his way to see a train, and always asked his visitors if they had seen a train on the way to visit him. Charlie also had an uncanny ability to monitor and predict the weather. He was a lifelong student of atmospheric changes and generally gave better weather predictions than those found on local newscasts. Above all, he treasured time spent with family, especially if that time together was around the dinner table at a supper club enjoying a mouth-watering steak. Survivors include his siblings: Sue (Bob) Mangan of Waukesha, Mike (Teri) Flemming of Brookfield, Tom (Mary Lee) Flemming, of Chilton, Mary (Chris) Seeger of Green Bay; and nieces and nephews: Rob (Kelly), Mindy, Jeff, Kelly, Paul (Erin), Jonathan (Kristi), Nick, & Ellie. Other relatives and friends further survive him. He was preceded in death by his parents: Glenroy & Patricia. Funeral service will be at 12:00 Noon on Saturday, October 25, 2014 at Good Shepherd Catholic Church (54 E. Main St.) in Chilton with the Rev. Ryan Krueger officiating. Burial will follow in the St. Mary Catholic Cemetery. Friends may call at the church from 10:00 am until 11:45 am on Saturday, October 25, 2014. Memorials given in the name of Charles F. “Charlie” Flemming are greatly appreciated. Charlie’s family would like to extend a sincere thank you to all of the people who have helped him over the past several years, especially Judy Bohrtz and her staff at Roads to Freedom in Brillion, Amy Martell, Pat Miller and the entire family at New Hope Center, and the entire staff of St. Paul Hospice. – See more at:
