A Great Remembrance – Family Remembers Veteran, Community Activist

by | Dec 12, 2016


Charles (Chuck) Kasprzak, Jr. passed away on May 13, 2016 at the age of 79.  He was a retired salesman for the steel industry.  In addition he was an active community member.  He was involved with the Auburn Chamber of Commerce and the Auburn Kiwanis Club.  Chuck was proud to have served with the United States Marines.  He was an active member of the Chester P Tuttle Post where he participated in the weekly meat raffles.

Chuck was also an accomplished woodworker.   One of the projects he worked on was hand crafted doll houses.  They were truly a work of art.

Chuck is survived by his wife June and other family members.  June has graciously donated a beautiful hand crafted log cabin doll house to the Ladies’ Auxiliary of the Chester P. Tuttle Post.   This wonderful creation will be used as a fundraiser for this group.   The Ladies’ Auxiliary is a support group for activities being held at the post.  In addition, they offer scholarships to local students and sponsor a local girl attending Girls’ State.   They are currently working with the Legion Riders to collect personal care items for homeless men and women veterans.

A drawing will be held at the annual Christmas Open house being held at the Chester P. Tuttle Post on Saturday, December 17 beginning at 12 noon.   The tickets are on sale at the Post ; $2 each or 3 for $5.00.

The Auxiliary is honored that Chuck’s family has offered this wonderful way to remember his life and the beautiful work that he left as a legacy.
