Charles W. "Chuck" Boshan, 88, of Wausaukee, passed away Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017 at the Oscar G. Johnson Community Living Center after a lengthy battle with prostate cancer.
Born Nov. 11, 1929, to Benedict and Stephania (Korbella) Boshan, the sixth son in a family of seven children, he attended Wausaukee Schools. He entered the United States Marines in March 1948 and served in Japan and in a combat tour in Korea. He retired from the Marines after 12 years of service.
He worked at Neverman Oil until October 1983, until receiving a severe case of Guillians Barre (French polio) of which he never fully recovered physically from, but never let it dull his spirit or faith in God.
He enjoyed repairing cars and lawnmowers with his bent fingers and always had a smile for all. He became wheelchair bound and his days were filled with reading and acquiring information he shared with those he knew.
He is survived by nieces and nephews, Paulette Fugate (LeRoy Wagner), Shirley Kralovetz, John G. (Janet) Boshan, Pat Boshen, Peggy Ebban, Bill (Lucy) Perry and Barbara (Roger) McClellan.
He was preceded in death by his parents and all of his siblings.
Visitation will be held at Roubal Funeral Home in Wausaukee on Thursday, Dec. 14 from 11 a.m. until time of a service at 1 p.m. Full Military Honors will be provided by the Amberg American Legion. Burial will be in Evergreen Cemetery in Spring.
