Charles Langdon, age 78, a resident of Siren, Wisconsin, died after a courageous battle with cancer surrounded by his family on Saturday, January 7, 2023 at Maple Ridge in Spooner.
Chuck was born on December 16, 1944, in Detroit, Michigan to parents Leroy and Lorene (Ohldrich) Langdon. As a young child he attended school in Detroit before moving to Hawks, Michigan where his mother and step father owned a small-town grocery store. His father died when Chuck was young and he was raised by his mother and step father Harold Klann. After school, he enlisted in the US Army. While on leave with his Army buddy Norm Hills in Danbury, Wisconsin, he met Norm’s sister Mildred who would later become his wife. After Chuck’s discharge, the couple lived in St. Paul for a time and in the early 1970’s they moved to Webster and then to Siren in the early 1990’s. Chuck spent the majority of his working years as an over the road Truck Driver, but when home, he enjoyed rabbit hunting with his beagles, spending time with his girls, family and friends.
Chuck is survived by his wife Millie, daughter Tina (Dan) Sherry of New Brighton, MN, granddaughter Brittany (Chris) Wanless of Grantsburg, WI, sisters Mary (Dale) Jarman and Kristy Fairbanks (Dave Jackson), all of Mt. Pleasant, MI, and many other extended family and friends.
Chuck is preceded in death by his parents, step father, and brother Eric Klann.
Per Chuck’s wishes no services will be held.
