He was born Feb. 20, 1934 in Chippewa County, the son of Bernard C. and Mary (Urban) Rauscher. He had worked at Uniroyal as a superintendent for 40 years, retiring in 1992. He married Carol Bernier on Nov. 18, 1954 at St. Charles Church in Chippewa Falls. He was a member of Notre Dame Church.
He is survived by his wife, Carol, whom he loved with all his heart; two sons, Charles W. (Patti) of Altoona and Thomas, of Minneapolis, Minn.; four daughters, Cathy (significant other, Dave Jensen), Connie (Bill) Schoch, Sue (Dave) Bleskachek and Michele (Tony) Raycher, all of Chippewa Falls; one sister, Rose Ann Leavens, of West Bend; 11 grandchildren, Erin, Christopher, Matthew, Andy, Aimee, Jon, Christi, Sarah, Kattie, Adam and Sam and one great granddaughter, Josie.

Charles was a big man with a huge heart. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, playing cards, polka music, Packer parties and working in his woodworking shop. Most of all, he enjoyed his family and grandchildren.
During his retirement, Charles was active in the Headstart program, Family Health, helping out everyone and serving the Lord. In his family's eyes he was a soldier and a hero, smiling and joking until his last days.
